1962 — 53 Years Leipziger Synagogalchor — 2015

Music plays a key role as mediator between the nations. The Leipziger Synagogalchor is dedicated to the preservation of synagogue music as well as of Yiddish and Hebrew folk songs by performing the compositions in free arrangements. The ensemble, which consists of singers of non-Jewish origin, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012.

Today as well as in the future the dedication of the Leipziger Synagogalchor will be the support of peace, tolerance, and cultural communication between the nations by giving converts all over the world.

Artistic Director since 2012:   Ludwig Böhme
