The Society for Ethnomusicology’s Special Interest Group for
Jewish Music aims to bring together scholars focusing on a wide range of issues
related to Jewish music. The SIG recognizes the importance of the study of the
music of Jewish communities all across the globe and in all time periods. By
sponsoring panels at the SEM annual conference, as well as encouraging and
facilitating the interaction of scholars in all stages of their careers, the
SIG aims to be a useful resource for the scholarship of the music of Jewish
culture and religion.
