Ne’imah Jewish Community Chorus is a four voice-group chorus. The chorus’ mission is to acquaint, educate and enrich the Jewish and non-Jewish community of the Capital Region of New York State with the variety and richness of the Jewish choral music repertoire, ranging from original works by contemporary Jewish composers to choral arrangements of existing Jewish folk and liturgical music.
“Ne’imah” is the Hebrew word for “melody” and “being pleasant”.
Ne’imah has 30-35 Jewish and non-Jewish amateur singers from the Capital Region and surroundings, who love to sing Jewish choral music.
The 2014-2015 singing season marks Ne’imah’s 23rd year of existence. Rehearsals began on September 7, 2014 and continue most Sundays at 7:30 p.m. at Congregation B’nai Sholom located at 420 Whitehall Road, Albany, NY 12208.
