BackRoom Boston

The Joys of Music Come Alive at The Boston Synagogue

Reimagining. Creating. Re-Inventing and Re-experiencing

Music is fundamental to our common Jewish heritage & connections.  While some are spiritual Jews others find their identity through cultural experiences such as music – & The Boston Synagogue delivers!

BackRoom Boston is the downtown Boston hub for rising Jewish talent – & the creators of new Jewish cultural experiences.  It’s about music made by Jews, or in a Jewish style, or performed by Jews, or music with Jewish subject matter.  We have it all – & there’s more to come!

Experience the diversity of genres drawing from the rich Jewish cultural experience – ranging from New Jewish music, Klezmer/Roma, neo-Klezmer, Jewish folk-music, Yiddish, Ladino, Nigunnim, Israeli/Middle Eastern & other country influenced — to jazz, blues, popular and classic music — & from other genres that defy description. The beauty of this musical range is that they blend live performances with joy, hope, discovery, reflection & connection.

The Boston Synagogue is located in downtown, making it a convenient meeting point for local musicians – whether as a performer, composer, recording artist, or launching a new album. We are an incubator of sorts – nurturing young talent.
