The History of Kol HaOlam

In 2011, Adas Israel held the inaugural Kol HaOlam National Collegiate Jewish A Cappella Competition in Washington, D.C. Now celebrating its tenth anniversary, Kol HaOlam has become a beloved institution in the Jewish a cappella world and for the Adas Israel congregation.

More than just a competition, Kol HaOlam weekend is a Shabbaton filled with beautiful harmonies at meals, services, and all over the Adas building. Jewish students from various colleges have the opportunity to sing with each other and learn from each other, heading back to their campus with new ideas and inspiration. Home hospitality graciously offered by Adas members builds yet additional relationships.

Last year’s winner was Hooshir from Indiana University. Who will win this year? Join us for Kol HaOlam to find out!
