Stern der Hoffnung - Israelische Chormusik
Louis Lewandowski Festival Louis Lewandowski Festival


Der »Johannesburg Jewish Male Choir« feiert 25 Jahre Gottesdienst für die jüdische Gemeinde in Süd Afrika. Der erste Auftritt fand 1985 im Linder Auditorium in Johannesburg statt - in Erinnerung an Kantor Johnny Gluck, dessen wunderbare Stimme immer noch in unseren Herzen klingt. Durch seine Engagement gelang es dem JJMC das Erbe der jüdischen Musik lebendig zu halten.


The JJMC has attracted choristers from around Johannesburg, many of whom sing in Synagogue choirs. The Choir elevates the sound of Jewish prayer and song to unreachable heights. It has been privileged to have performed with some of the greatest Cantors during their travels abroad as well as at home. The JJMC has been an excellent ambassador for the South African Jewish community and the country as a whole and is an acknowledged part of the Jewish art scene of Johannesburg.

The JJMC’s music has encapsulated the very core of Judaism through song, encompassing the history and hopes of the Jewish people. In a language that knows no geographical boundaries, the music speaks to every listener, reflecting the traumas of the past and the dreams of the future.

The performances of the Choir reflect the dedication, enthusiasm and commitment of the Musical Directorate and choristers who give of their time on a voluntary basis. Their reward is the knowledge that through their efforts, numerous charities have benefited and the culture of the Jewish people has been experienced by many.
