Jewish Music Institute

The Jewish Music Institute is an independent institute based at the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London.  An excellent resource for finding out about Jewish music, and the library staff are keen for their collections to be known about.

From the Jewish Music Institute's homepage:-
"We are the Jewish Music Institute. We curate, educate and celebrate – bringing to life this rich seam in world culture. Our mission encompasses the music of the Jewish people wherever they are and wherever they have been, preserving and developing this great heritage for the benefit of present and future generations.

We are an independent arts organisation, established in March 2000 at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, after 18 years of successful operation under the name of the Jewish Music Heritage Trust. JMI is a national focus bringing Jewish music to the mainstream British cultural arena for people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures."
