The Washington Jewish Music Festival is the flagship of the Edlavitch DCJCC’s year-round music program. Established in 1999 with a lead gift from the Howard and Geraldine Polinger Family Foundation, the WJMF promotes a broader appreciation of Jewish culture and connects the Greater Washington, DC community through music. WJMF presents extraordinary performing artists who preserve and invigorate Jewish music in contemporary culture. Through collaborations, educational programming, and free events, the Festival actively engages people throughout the greater DC community in cross-cultural dialogue.
In addition to the Festival, the WJMF presents year-round programs at our home venue, the Aaron and Cecile Goldman Theater.
The 20th Washington Jewish Music Festival will take place May 8-26, 2019.
