Jewish Music Institute

(London, England) Institution dedicated to Jewish music, and holding a rich library with books, discs, sheet music...

The Jewish Music Institute Library was founded with the support of Doris and Bertie Black and is the first public library in Britain devoted to Jewish music.

The library comprises an impressive collection of books, sheet music, 78s, CDs, tapes and scores covering Jewish music from the middle-ages to the 21st century and spanning all genres including choral, cantorial, jazz, klezmer, Yiddish, Sephardi, Israeli and classical music. The library includes the personal collections of significant British cantors, choirmasters and enthusiasts in many different fields of Jewish music such as the music of the Synagogue, Eastern European Yiddish culture, the songs of the Sephardi diaspora and Israeli music. In addition there will, in time, be an archive and online database dedicated to Music Suppressed by the Third Reich and other totalitarian regimes.

They organise several events such as the JMI Festival of Music in August, the JMI’s Festival of Jewish Arts and Music in September and the Jewish Music Fair.
