Exposure

The support coming from different companies is often crucial for the success and the longevity of cultural projects.

Support a project

The European Institute of Jewish Music is a public association as per the law of July 1st 1901, and survives only thanks to donations and subsidies. In order to accomplish its missions, the European Institute for Jewish Music must modernize itself, enrich its collections and propose incessantly new cultural projects. In order to preserve the diversity of its activities, the EIJM needs your help for:

  • Cultural projects: contribute in the organization of our cultural programme.
  • Acquisitions: take part in the enlargement of our databases, enriching our permanent collections who are a witness of the diversity within the Jewish musical heritage, created by Jewish artists and communities throughout centuries in France and elsewhere.
  • Digitization and cataloging: The saying goes that protection is knowing before anything else. The identification, cataloging and digitization of our patrimonial archives are the basis of what our volunteers do. The digitization is employed as a method towards both preservation and diffusion. The European Institute of Jewish Music has made it from now on possible to make this patrimony available to a large audience.

Volunteering

Do you find the music and the history of the Jewish people interesting? Are you interested in taking actions today that will allow our children and grandchildren to have access to the exquisite musical patrimony that the Jewish artists and communities have created through centuries in France and elsewhere?

The European Institute of Jewish Music would welcome any volunteers who would like to help us with:

  • Digitizing old recordings, scores and photos
  • Cataloging musical documents (knowledge of Hebrew and/or Yiddish, Ladino, Judaeo-Arabic would be appreciated)
  • Conserving fragile documents (cleaning disks, putting them in files, cleaning scores, etc.)
  • Maintenance of a cyber network and the musical files server
  • Event organisation (concerts, conferences, colloquiums)
  • Promotion of our activities before the press, through email, newsletter, website (excellent writing skills would be appreciated)

If you have any of these abilities and would like to spend a few hours per week, in pleasure and in good mood, to help with the conservation and enhancement of Jewish musical patrimony, please contact the director of the institute Hervé Roten on +33 1 45 82 20 52 or by email : contact@iemj.org

Venue: IEMJ - 29 rue Marcel Duchamp (access from 42 rue Nationale) - 75013 Paris
