Mission: The Westchester Klezmer Program is a not-for-profit corporation that operates as a music performance program to promote community service through klezmer (a traditional form of Jewish dance music) music performances. Members participate in community service by giving frequent public performances of klezmer music at nursing homes, programs for children with special needs, programs for developmentally disabled adults, synagogues, and other community based events. The goals of the program are achieved through multigenerational participation. Adults and teens take part by attending rehearsals and performing at concerts along side the children, helping to keep the students engaged in the program, providing them with appropriate modeling, and assisting at rehearsals. Participating synagogues have approved the program as a community service project for musicians who are preparing for their bar/bat mitzvah.
