Time Out says

This exhibition celebrates the Jewish contribution to the music we've been listening to for more than a century

George Gershwin, Barbra Streisand, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Carole King, Amy Winehouse: The impact of Jewish people on popular music of all generations is impossible to measure. But one thing you mightn't know is that it was actually Emile Berliner, a Jewish inventor living in America, who created the flat disc gramphone and developed the sort of records that have been in use since the start of the 20th century.

This exhibition at the Sydney Jewish Museum celebrates the Jewish contribution to music from the last century. There are more than 500 records in the collection, from international and Australian Jewish artists, including Renee Geyer, Ben Lee, The Potbelleez and Tinpan Orange.
