Jews on Vinyl

Music for Maniacs presents - "When You're In Love, The Whole World is Jewish", featuring the wacky world of Jewish novelty records of the 50's and 60's. These LP's are featured exhibits at the Skirball Cultural Center in LA showcasing the history of contemporary Jewish American culture.

Jews On Vinyl was developed in association with the publication "And You Shall Know Us By the Trail of Our Vinyl: The Jewish Musical Past As Told By the Records We Have Loved and Lost" (Crown, 2008), a project of the non-profit Idlesohn Society for Musical Preservation, which reissues select classic recordings and has created a digital online home for Jewish musical memory in an attempt to restore missing legacies to our contemporary view of Jewish America."
