The Role of Music in Jewish Programming in Community Centers

By Richard J. Neumann

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1966

The author argues that Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) ought to recognize that music (along with other forms of art) is one of the most important expressions of Jewish identity, not only in the synagogue service, but in the concert hall. Jewish music should be brought closer to the local Jewish community, he contends, as a force for strengthening Jewish survival and continuity. Jewish centers should seek to develop Jewish musical expression both by absorbing our heritage and creating a Jewish music of tomorrow.
