The »Synagogenchor Zürich«, conducted by Robert Braunschweig, consists of approx. 24 singers. The choir is supported by the Jewish Community of Zurich (ICZ).

»Synagogenchor Zürich« performs once a month at the Löwenstrasse Synagogue in Shabbat morning services as well as during high holidays. »Synagogenchor Zürich« also regularly performs at interdenominational events and has given numerous concerts.

The choir in the Löwenstraße synagogue has existed – in various forms – for over 100 years. Its members have and live a wide variety of religious orientations. They all share the joy of singing in the cultural and religious environment of the unified community ICZ, which cultivates an open and unifying attitude in the inner-Jewish discussion.

The choir’s repertoire includes about 60 mainly synagogue songs and chasan accompaniments by German, French, Polish and Russian composers of the 19th century as well as contemporary Swiss, American and Israeli musicians.
