The only organization of its kind in the United States, The Jewish Music Commission of Los Angeles was founded in 1982 through a grant from the Board of Directors of Valley Beth Shalom. With international competitions and festivals held in the Los Angeles area, we create new opportunities for the performance of Jewish music, encourage the composition of Jewish music for the synagogue and for the community at large, and bring Jewish music to new audiences. Through seminars and classes, we offer educational programs for those composers who wish to enhance their knowledge to write authentic new Jewish music.
