Welcome to Ne’imah!

Ne’imah Jewish Community Chorus is a four voice-group chorus based in the Capital Region of New York State.

Our mission is to acquaint, educate and enrich our community 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” (“Neh-ee-MAH”) “נְעימָה” is the Hebrew word for “pleasant melody.”

Ne’imah has 35 multi-faith singers from the Capital Region and surroundings, who love to sing Hebrew choral music.

The 2019-2020 singing season marks Ne’imah’s 28th year of performance.

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!

Thank you for your support!
