The University of Toronto's Jewish a cappella choir.

Varsity Jews has been delighting audiences since 2002! Our repertoire includes a wide variety of music from traditional Hebrew folk, to modern Israeli songs, to classic rock with an added Jewish flavour. Varsity Jews is made up of undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students, as well as U of T alumni and community members.  

The group sings at synagogues, U of T and Hillel events, bar mitzvah luncheons, Friday night dinners, and Jewish a cappella festivals in the USA. Each year in early spring, the choir selects a charity and puts on a fundraising concert. Varsity Jews has raised thousands of dollars for organizations such as, One Family Fund, Beit Hashanti (youth shelter), Save a Child's Heart, Latet - Israeli Humanitarian Aid, and Te-Amim Music Theatre- Tolerance education through the arts.
