The disc collection from the French radio RCJ

From Israeli variety to cantorial art

The Radio Communautaire Juive (RCJ), was created in 1981 by the Fonds Social Juif Unifié (FSJU). RCJ takes part in the Jewish communautary life in all aspects, in Paris and its region and aims to maintain a relationship between the listeners and French Judaism, to speak to a larger audience, Jewish and non-Jewish. Major subjects about the Jewish world today are debated on this radio.

These archives are now available for consultation (browse the RCJ collection) or by taking an appointment with the European Institute of Jewish Music (
