The event has flourished since its inception two years ago. If you're travelling in Amsterdam during the month of November, be sure to check for the festival’s details and stay up to date!
International Jewish Music Festival
IJMF is a charity dedicated to celebrating and promoting Jewish music throughout the Netherlands and around the globe. The charitable foundation strives to lessen the gap between performers and audiences, while growing the musicians’ reach and furthering international knowledge of the music itself. The IJMF achieves their goals by producing concerts, educational activities and competitions. This year marks the fifth bi-annual International Jewish Music Competition, and renowned and upcoming artists who represent all genres from around the world will be in attendance. The event is marketed as ‘the world’s only all-genre Jewish music competition’, and attendees can expect entertainment from a diverse set of over 100 performers!
Ben Bril Memorial Boxing Gala
The Ben Bril Memorial Boxing Gala takes place in October at the Royal Theatre Carré, formerly the circus ring, in the center of Amsterdam. The show’s highly celebrated namesake, Ben Bril, was a Jewish boxing legend in Amsterdam and abroad. Barend “Ben” Bril (1912-2003) paved the way for Jewish athletes worldwide and is continually honored with this esteemed annual gala event. Throughout October, stay informed of the event's details, as this is one not to be missed! The Dutch boxer participated in the 1928 Summer Olympics at age 15. Although he was very successful, Bril’s life was not without hardships. Ten years after being denied participation in what would have been his second Summer Olympics because he was a Jew, Bril was deported to a concentration camp in Germany along with his family. After the war, the boxer began refereeing in Europe.
