Being a partner of the European Institute of Jewish Music means:

  • Promoting the Jewish music of France
  • Contributing to the organization of high quality cultural events
  • Benefiting from tax benefits and other privileges

Patronage

This original form of patronage allows one to play a central role in the development and the influence of the Jewish musical patrimony, while valuing the very core of your profession and your know-how at the European Institute of Jewish Music (helping with industry, IT, etc … ).

  • Website
  • Renovation of the furniture in the multimedia library
  • Renewal of the IT stock in the multimedia library
  • Creation of a platform which could host multimedia resources and documents

Exposure

The support coming from different companies is often crucial for the success and the longevity of cultural projects. Being a patron of the European Institute of Jewish Music, your company projects its image and trademark and will benefit from a notable attention thanks to the presence of its name and logo on all our means of communication (our products, or our cultural activities).

Privileges

Patrons will benefit from priority access to different cultural events organized by the Institute.

Note: a donation to an association is different than membership. You can independently, from being a donor, act as a member of the association, and take part in its organization and actions.

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 mission, the European Institute for Jewish Music must modernize itself, enrich its collections and continually propose new cultural projects. In order to preserve the diversity of its activities, the EIJM needs your help for:

  • Cultural projects: contribute to the organization of our cultural programme.
  • Acquisitions: take part in the enlargement of our databases, enriching our permanent collections that are a testimony to 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 central activities 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 with 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
