NAJCF 25 A Silver Anniversary Success!


The 25th annual North American Jewish Choral Festival drew a record crowd to celebrate a quarter century of Jewish choral community.  More than 600 attendees enjoyed workshops by new presenters as well as faculty favorites, sang in five "instant choirs" and reveled in five days of community and harmony.

A highlight of the Festival was the presentation of the 11th annual Hallel V'Zimrah Award to Marsha Bryan Edelman for their many years of service to the Festival.  Click here to view a film by Elena Neuman Lefkowitz celebrating Marsha's and Danny's contributions.  The Wednesday night program also featured the presentation of a special LaM'natzeach Award to Festival Founder and Director Matthew Lazar.  Click here to view Elena's film about Maestro Lazar.
