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 MassRealty.com, 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

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. Zamir is a member of the Greater Boston Choral Consortium, a cooperative association of diverse choral groups in Boston and the surrounding areas.
