The musical archives of the synagogue of Neuilly (Paris region, France)

On November 1st 2011, the synagogue of Neuilly deposited to the European Institute of Jewish Music all of its musical archives: more than 370 music scores and archives that have been cleaned, repackaged with professional archive materials, listed and classified.

These documents were stored in an open cabinet and accessible to everyone. They are now digitalized, catalogued and available to the public on the RACHEL catalogue..

This work, that had the support of the Foundation for French Judaism, Yuval, the Regional Direction for Cultural Affairs of Paris region, the Alain de Rothschild Institute, the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah, and the Halphen family, completes the work that has been done on the musical archives of the Great Synagogue de la Victoire. It allows an accurate overview on the life of the Jewish community of Neuilly and its engagement in the music from the Consistoire (Ashkenazi ritual) during nearly 140 years.
