Welcome to Zamru!

Independent minyan 
of Princeton, NJ

Zamru is a progressive, egalitarian Jewish community celebrating Shabbat through spiritual and musical prayer.

Zamru is led by a group of volunteers including Rabbi Julie Roth, Executive Director of  Center for Jewish Life - Princeton Hillel, Princeton University students, and Princeton-area residents. The deeply spiritual and highly musical services feature Dan Nadel, a guitarist from Brooklyn who combines the flair of Flamenco with Jewish melodies from all over the world. 

Zamru began holding services in Princeton
in December of 2009.

Zamru is a volunteer group and relies on the talents, efforts and donations of our participants.
