Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.

Notes Like most other country, the history of modern Israel is written in the songs of its people. Through years of travail and final independence, the modern Jew has developed a medium of expression without restraint, an expression of a fullness and richness attainable only in music. In these songs, Sidor Belarsky's performance describes a voyage from darkness to light, for which the Jews have long striven - an ideal we can all appreciate and understand.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
