For the purpose of the Azrieli Music Prizes, the Azrieli Foundation defines ‘Jewish music’ as broadly as possible, taking into account the rich and diverse history of Jewish musical traditions, as well as music by Jews and non-Jews, which may be said to incorporate a Jewish thematic or Jewish musical influence. Jewish themes may vary broadly, and can include biblical, historical, liturgical, secular and/or folk elements. Fundamentally, the Foundation encourages an understanding of Jewish music as deeply rooted in history and tradition, yet forward-moving and dynamic. As such, it encourages themes and content drawn from contemporary Jewish life and experience. For additional information, see the "What is Jewish Music" tab on the URL for Full Text below.

The winning composer or composer’s estate is expected to attend the rehearsals, performances, and recording of the prize-winning work, and will be publicly honored at the AMP Gala Concert in Montreal in the fall of 2022.
