Who are we?
Mezumenet is the University of Maryland's all-female Jewish a cappella group.
How did we begin?
Mezumenet was founded in December 2008 by four young women who studied (and sang) in Israel together. When they came to UMD, they wanted to continue singing together while also providing a family for girls with a shared passion for singing and Jewish culture.
What do we sing?
Our repertoire includes traditional Jewish melodies, current Israeli pop, classic rock, Broadway hits, and contemporary radio hits, all rounded out by our unique Mezumenet parodies.
Where do we perform?
In addition to frequent gigs on campus and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, we have performed at the University of Delaware, Rutgers University, and synagogues/JCCs in Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia. We also have performed at the Jewish A Cappella Festival (JAF) in New York City. Furthermore, we have competed five times in Kol HaOlam, a collegiate Jewish a cappella competition in Washington, D.C. Our most recent performance was at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) convention in Washington, D.C. If you would like Mezumenet to perform at your event, please contact us!
