Synagogues throughout Jerusalem are going to be filled with music during Purim and Passover. Six concerts featuring different genres of Jewish music – from klezmer and hassidic to shir habakashot of the Moroccan community and piyutim – are coming up under the auspices of “Nights of Jewish Music at Jerusalem Synagogues.”

The series, supported by the Jerusalem Municipality, is promoted by the Amuta “Spectacular World of Jewish Music”, which focuses on presenting the vast array of Jewish music genres to audiences and aims to bring Jewish music to the forefront of the Israeli stage.

Klezmer is up first with “Journey to the Ancient Cultural Roots of Ashkenazi Jews,” which will take place on March 26 at the Kehilat Nitzanim in Baka. Gershon Leizerson and the Israel Klezmer Ensemble will present the world of Klezmer music, with songs, melodies and unique humor. Hassidic music is next on March 28, at Beit HaKnesset Hadati Haleumi in Har Nof, featuring master clarinetist Hilik Frank.

For an evening of Oriental and Moroccan music, March 30 is the date at the Atrid Synagogue in East Talpiot. April 1 features jazz-style music at the Beit Yosef Synagogue in Shikun Rasko, featuring Daniel Zamir and Nitzan Bar. Piyutim take the stage on April 2 at Bnei Harama in Ramot Alon. And the series winds up on April 4 with a mixed East-West Jewish music jam at the Aderet Eliyahu Synagogue in Gilo, featuring the Naor Carmi Trio.

All concerts begin at 8 pm, except for the March 30 show which starts at 9:30 pm. Tickets are NIS 50. Advanced purchases available at (*6226) or at the door.
