Jewish Italian Music

The Online Thesaurus of Jewish Italian Music (OTJIM) is an online searchable database offering an organized access to recorded material, transcriptions and sheet music pertaining to the Jewish Italian repertories and to the various archives and resources available in Italy and worldwide.

The OTJIM is a project of the “Centro Internazionale Leo Levi”, created through the vision and insight of rabbi Joseph Levi, son of Leo Levi z.l.; its ideation and framework owe a particular debt to the work, counsel inspiration and collaboration of prof. Edwin Seroussi and the work of the Jewish Music Research Centre in Jerusalem.
