Educational Enrichment

Educational Opportunities for All Ages.

Please help us share the beauty of sacred Judaic music with students of all ages. Dr. Rothstein’s educational presentations feature audio visual materials, and lots of lively discussion. We have presented the Judaic Symphony No. 1 (Days of Awe) in person and via Zoom in Los Angeles and beyond.

Please consider a presentation as part of an age appropriate classroom presentation, private gathering, havarah event, part of an educational series, or as an element in your donor benefit program.

The presentations are free of charge, however donations to preserve and share sacred music are welcome. To host an event, schedule a presentation, or get more information about the Judaic Sacred Music Foundation, please contact Director of Development Jerry Krautman at JKrautman@judaicsacredmusicfoundation.org or (310) 738-2192.
