Sheba Choir

The Sheba Choir was established in 1991. The choir features children from the Ethiopian Jewish community and is living proof that music can serve as a bridge between peoples and cultures, as a source of positive self-image, and as a pathway to social inclusion. 

In 2010, the Sheba Choir established a nonprofit organization to extend its vision of promoting, nourishing and merging Ethiopian and Israeli cultures, while fostering the values of teamwork and excellence in the young singers the choir serves.

The Sheba Choir’s educational work takes place in Ethiopian communities throughout Israel, in the North, to Hadera, Givat Olga (Technoda), Netanya, and Mevaseret Zion (near Jerusalem).

All the material performed by the Sheba Choir were written, composed, and arranged especially for the voices and rhythms of these wonderful children.

The repertoire includes Ethiopian rhythms and melodies brought over by the children and their families, traditional Jewish music, and original songs specially composed, arranged and commissioned by and for the Sheba Choir.

The first "Sheba Choir" album was released in May, 1993, which led to performances in the USA and Canada, Mexico, many European countries (including the Vatican), and all over Israel.

The Choir has received press accolades for the quality and creativity of its work and lately a special recognition for long term activities from the Rupin Academic institute. 

Even more importantly, the choir activities have helped numerous Ethiopian children to smooth their entry into adulthood and into Israeli society.
