JMI is the home of Jewish music in the UK. We are dedicated to the celebration, preservation and development of the living heritage of Jewish music for the benefit of people of all ages and backgrounds.
Our goal is to inform and inspire audiences with an exciting, original programme of live performances, educational events and collaborative projects and to support musicians playing Jewish music across the UK enabling them to preserve this traditional heritage, create new work and reach the widest audiences.
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 genre for the benefit of present and future generations.
We are an independent arts organization, established in March 2000 at SOAS, University of London, after 18 years of successful operation under the name of the Jewish Music Heritage Trust. JMI brings Jewish music to the mainstream British and international cultural arena for people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures.
