About the Jewish Folk Chorus of San Francisco

The Jewish Folk Chorus has been in existence since 1926 with a vast repertoire of Jewish music including songs in Yiddish, Hebrew, Ladino and Russian. They stay true to their roots in the labor movement by preserving and performing works from their library of Yiddish labor songs. Through its 97-year existence, the Chorus has sung many interesting and difficult Jewish musical works, without forgetting the simple folk music of our ancestors. They preserve a rich, diverse and deeply satisfying musical heritage.
