The mission of Jewish Rock Radio (JRR) is to strengthen Jewish identity and engagement for youth and young adults through the power of music.
Jewish Rock Radio is the flagship initiative of Judaism Alive, a non-profit 501c3.
JRR was founded in 2009 by Jewish musical pioneer, Rick Recht. JRR serves as a powerful platform, exposing the wealth of cool engagement opportunities available in the Jewish world for teens and young adults.
Jewish Rock Radio is a high-caliber, 24-7, Jewish rock internet radio station. JRR broadcasts contemporary Jewish rock music, as well as interviews featuring youth from communities around the country speaking about their exciting experiences from engaging in Jewish life. Building on Jewish Rock Radio’s powerful foundation, JRR is launching a major national initiative in 2016, the JRR Gift of Music, to distribute free Jewish rock music to hundreds of thousands of teens and young adults throughout North America.
