The American Society for Jewish Music (ASJM) serves as a broad canopy for all who are interested in Jewish music. Its members include cantors, composers, educators, musicologists, ethnologists, historians, performers and interested lay members - as well as libraries, universities, synagogues and other institutions.
Each season the Society presents a series of varied musical programs for the general public, often working with its host at the Center, the American Jewish Historical Society. The concerts cover a wide range of Jewish music: sacred, secular, folk, concert and theater. The Society also arranges and presents lectures on Jewish music by experts in their field. In addition to the programs presented by the Society, to which the general public is invited, the ASJM encourages seminars, workshops and master classes at which students may benefit from the musical expertise of the Society's members. Among its other activities, the American Society for Jewish music publishes Musica Judaica, a scholarly journal that is unique in it the field of Jewish music.... (from ASJM website)
