I see now that Zamir is not just a choir, beyond this, it is a profound human institution that you have created for people to identify as Jews – a community based on Jewish identification and musical and artistic excellence. And, as I could see that evening [Zamir’s performance of Hanukkah Happens at Temple Emanuel in Newton, MA], an important source of sacred, national and religious pride for the whole community.”

— Max Stern, composer and conductor

Zamir Chorale of Boston is Choir-in-Residence at Hebrew College and is funded in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and supported by Combined Jewish Philanthropies.
