How We Make A Difference...

  • The Zamir Choral Foundation does a brilliant job of bringing the best in Jewish music alive for performers and audiences alike. With the activities of the Mandell Fund for New Music, they go one step further, and take an active role in creating new pieces, and presenting them so they may become the repertory staples of the future. I'm very grateful to have been given the opportunity to contribute to this great legacy.

    -Steve Cohen, Composer

  • My first trip to Israel was on a ZCF mission. I cannot imagine a better way to start my lifelong love of OUR country! Between the music, touring and amazing people on the trip, it was an all-together wonderful experience. Thank you, Zamir!

    -ZCF Israel Mission participant

  • I love the interaction and inclusiveness, where differences in age, background, religious choices and musical level only add stimulus to the mix rather than pulling us apart.
