Ne'imah Jewish Community Chorus is a four voice-groups chorus. The chorus' mission is to acquaint, educate and enrich the Jewish and non-Jewish community of the Capital Region of New York State with the variety and richness of the Jewish choral music repertoire, ranging from original works by contemporary Jewish composers to choral arrangements of existing Jewish folk and liturgical music.

"Ne'imah" is the Hebrew word for "melody" and "being pleasant".

Ne'imah has 30-35 Jewish and non-Jewish amateur singers from the Capital Region and surroundings, who love to sing Jewish choral music.

The 2013-2014 singing season marks Ne'imah's 22nd year of existence. Rehearsals are starting on September 22, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. at Congregation B'nai Sholom located at 420 Whitehall Road, Albany, NY 12208. Click calendar to learn about our upcoming performances and the rehearsal schedule.

Ne'imah is open to Jewish and non-Jewish people, regardless of religion, organizational affiliation, musical sight-reading and foreign language knowledge, age, race or disability.
