The first music school of its kind will open its doors during the next school year and will focus entirely on Jewish music.

Dozens of applicants have already applied and auditions have recently been heard by the faculty of the new school – jazz musician Daniel Zamir, Rabbi Mordechai Vardi, and musician Itzik Weiss.

The faculty at Mizmor School of Music believe that the school answers a need of many religious youth who are developing their musical capabilities, but don’t have an appropriate framework in which to do so.

Studies at the school will be divided into study tracks – performance, adaptation, and composition. Integrated into the curriculum will also be a “creative beit midrash (school of religious study)” in which the students will grapple with Jewish texts as a source of creative inspiration.

The school is already planning high-level musical productions. One of the ideas already being thrown around is creating a rock opera based on the life story of Rabbi Nachman from Breslev.
