About Israel Musicological Society

The Israel Musicological Society (IMS) was founded in 1967 in order

to promote musical scholarship and contribute to musical life in Israel.


IMS members include representatives of all university departments of

musicology, music schools and colleges, teachers' training colleges, music

research centers and collections in Israel, as well as independent scholars.


The IMS holds an annual conference, presenting recent research by Israeli musicologists and guests from abroad. It is a non for-profit organization

(ID  58-004-813-0, ID for tax purposes: 943279604), funded entirely by

membership dues and contributions by generous institutions and individuals. 

The IMS publishes Min-Ad: Israel Studies in Musicology Online.
