Establishing the Magevet Endowment

Nearly thirty years ago, a group of Yale students came together to create a community dedicated to celebrating the beauty and significance of Jewish, Hebrew, and Israeli song. Today, we are thrilled to announce the campaign to establish the Magevet endowment, and we hope that you will join us in this groundbreaking effort.

Magevet’s work has an immense impact on all those involved, and it also helps to ensure that the great diversity of Jewish, Hebrew, and Israeli music is preserved and shared for generations to come. To support this work in perpetuity, we hope to establish an endowment fund of $118,000 that will cover general operations and allow Magevet to spread Jewish, Hebrew, and Israeli music even farther—from New Haven to communities the world over.
