Neranenah, formerly the Atlanta Jewish Music Festival, is a non-profit cultural event series with roots in Jewish culture and musical traditions.
Neranenah entertains and connects diverse audiences through the exploration of Jewish contributions to music and the performing arts, celebrating its intersections with other cultures and communities.
NERANENAH (HEBREW: נְרַנְּנָה) MEANS “TO COME TOGETHER AND SING.”
We honor tradition but are far from traditional. Our minds and ears are open; the fingerprints of Jewish culture can be found all around us. We seek not to define Jewish arts and culture, but to embrace its diversity, subjectiveness, and personal nature to create a space open and inviting to all.
Our 3 Pillars/What Guides Us/Our Values
We emphasize the contributions and influence of Jewish people on music and culture, but our organization exists for everyone. Neranenah is where every voice can come together and sing.
(FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION)
Jewish music and cultural traditions are meant to be shared and celebrate. We take seriously the responsibility of passing along traditions and knowledge to the next generation and encourage creative evolution so they may stay alive for more to come. We may not be traditional in our approach, but we believe in the traditions.
There is freedom at Neranenah. Freedom to express, believe and explore what feels right to your personal creative and spiritual journey.
