Welcoming Shabbat with the Zamir Noded Choir Singing Shabbat Hamalka


We've been attending performances of HaZamir: The International Jewish High School Choir every year and posting selections from their annual Gala Concert

But we've been wondering what happens to all those talented voices when they graduate from high school and move on to college and careers.

The answer is Zamir Noded, the newest initiative of the Zamir Choral Foundation, created to provide a high level musical opportunity for young adults aged 18-30 to sing in a Jewish choir with like-minded peers.

Zamir Noded is conducted by renowned Maestro Matthew Lazar and has drawn singers from throughout the tri-State area and beyond, including alumni of HaZamir and others who are attracted to this unique ensemble.  

Established in September, 2013, the ensemble presented its debut performance in the Foundation’s Hanukkah concert at Merkin Concert Hall on December 3, 2013.  Since then, Zamir Noded has earned rave reviews in its performances around the New York Metropolitan area and at the North American Jewish Choral Festival.

In today's video, Zamir Noded sings Shabbat Hamalkah, composed by Jeff Klepper and arranged by E. Epstein, at the at Congregation B'nai Jacob in Woodbridge CT, conducted by Matthew Lazar.

Enjoy, and Shabbat shalom.
