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 2017-2018 singing season marks Ne’imah’s 27th year of existence. Rehearsals began on September 24, 2017 and continue most Sundays at 7:30 p.m. at Congregation B’nai Sholom located at 420 Whitehall Road, Albany, NY 12208.
Ne’imah is open to Jewish and non-Jewish singers, regardless of religion, organizational affiliation, musical sight-reading and foreign language knowledge, age, race or disability.
On our 25th anniversary, we decided to retire our longstanding logo pictured below. We hope to use our rebranding to instill a sense of pride in Jewish music and the excitement of upcoming concerts in the Capital District!
