Jewish Songwriting Cooperative (JSC) Information:

What is the Jewish Songwriting Cooperative?

The JSC is a 4 day songwriting retreat that focuses on Jewish music. You will have an opportunity to have quiet writing time, collaborate with other songwriters, and engage in workshops in a supportive, non-competitive environment. There will be multiple opportunities to share your music during song swaps, tefillah, open stages, etc. This retreat is different from other Jewish music retreats in that it is not faculty-driven, but rather a cooperative where we can support and encourage each other in our creative efforts.
