Make money playing and Singing! Financial opportunities and responsibilities

Jewish Family Jams Series typically last for approximately eight to twelve 45 minute sessions, for which participants register and pay a fee of $100-160.  Jewish Family Jam Leaders maintain control of their schedule and session offerings. Some leaders want to offer a single series that meets monthly, committing only a few hours/month, while another leader may wish to offer multiple series daily at different locations to maximize their revenue. Your choice will depend on a variety of factors including your how much time you wish to commit to the endeavor, the size of your Jewish community, the proximity of neighboring Jewish communities, and more.

Jewish Family Jams Certification: Training and Materials without Licensing*

Jewish Family Jam Leader trainings use JFJ materials as a model curriculum but the training is generic enough so that any person wishing to improve their abilities to engage young children and their families in the Jewish community through music can certainly benefit! Jewish Family Jams invites people to apply the approach, theoretical information, songs and activities to their communities, but sure be sure to note that trademark and copyright laws will apply, and the use of the name “Jewish Family Jams” and its’ graphics are prohibited without licensing. While some of the Jewish Family Jams songs have been made commercially available, the entire recorded collection as a set is proprietary and it will be impossible to share them with the families.
