Volunteering

Do you find the music and the history of the Jewish people interesting? Are you interested in taking actions today that will allow our children and grandchildren to have access to the exquisite musical patrimony that the Jewish artists and communities have created through centuries in France and elsewhere?

The European Institute of Jewish Music would welcome any volunteers who would like to help us with:

  • Digitizing old recordings, scores and photos
  • Cataloging musical documents (knowledge of Hebrew and/or Yiddish, Ladino, Judaeo-Arabic would be appreciated)
  • Conserving fragile documents (cleaning disks, putting them in files, cleaning scores, etc.)
  • Maintenance of a cyber network and the musical files server
  • Event organisation (concerts, conferences, colloquiums)
  • Promotion of our activities before the press, through email, newsletter, website (excellent writing skills would be appreciated)

If you have any of these abilities and would like to spend a few hours per week, in pleasure and in good mood, to help with the conservation and enhancement of Jewish musical patrimony, please contact the director of the institute Hervé Roten on +33 1 45 82 20 52 or by email : contact@iemj.org

Venue: IEMJ - 29 rue Marcel Duchamp (access from 42 rue Nationale) - 75013 Paris

A normal day at the EIJM, the work, the team, the volunteers...
