New Member (Fall 2013)

We are SO excited to welcome our newest member to the group! Moran Goren (TC '15), welcome s'maboard!

Welcome to our wonderful website!

We are so thrilled that our site is up and running. Feel free to look around! If you have any questions, please contact us and we'd be happy to address them. Also, check us out on our new YouTube channel: smadaracappella

S’madar is the Pluralistic Jewish Women’s a cappella group of the Columbia/ Barnard Hillel. Founded in 2006, S’madar has grown both in number and in talent over the years. We have traveled around the Tri-State Area, and have recently been performing in communities beyond that region. Dedicated to the singing of both Jewish and Secular music, we sing music from a variety of genres. S'madar's repertoire ranges from liturgical music, to contemporary English music, to Israeli pop music, to 80's hits! S’madar performs at schools, community centers, synagogues, celebrations, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, fundraisers, and we also do workshops! Most importantly, we are a group of young women who love to sing, have fun, and get to know different communities wherever we go.
