The Power of Giving Back
to a Community:
Featuring Zamir Chorale of Boston
and Newton Community Farm

Check out this interview by Kristen Bosse, The Power of Giving Back to a Community, on, one of the top sites for Massachusetts Realty, including Newton, MA homes. Mass Realty also services Hartford, Connecticut Multi Family Homes and Providence, Rhode Island Condos.

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

Led by Founder and Artistic Director Joshua Jacobson, the Chorale comprises experienced volunteer singers who perform music spanning thousands of years, four continents, and a variety of styles, both classical and popular. Zamir’s repertoire includes Jewish liturgical pieces, major classical works, music of the Holocaust, newly commissioned compositions, and Israeli, Yiddish, and Ladino folksongs.
