      IFJMS welcomes The American Society for Jewish Music.

      The American Society for Jewish Music traces its roots back to the Society for Jewish Folk Music of St. Petersburg, Russia (1908-18).   After the Bolshevik Revolution, members of the group published their compositions under the imprint of JUWAL, Publication Society for Jewish Music (later called JIBNEH) with offices in Tel Aviv and Berlin.  Among these members were three composer-musicologists,  Joseph Achron, Solomon Rosowsky and Lazare Saminsky, who emigrated to the United States, where, along with Abraham W. Binder and others, they founded Mailamm (Makhon Eretz Yisraeli L’-Mada’ey ha-Musika), an  organization with chapters in several American cities (1932-39).  From 1939 to 1962, this was refashioned by  A.W. Binder as the Jewish Music Forum, which in turn became the Jewish Liturgical Society of America (1963-74).  In 1974, the latter group was reorganized as the American Society for Jewish Music, Inc., under the direction of its first president, Albert Weisser.
