Around 1900 a Jewish immigrant, Emil Berliner, changed the world. With the invention of the gramophone and the record, the first medium of a global culture was born. And the Jewish century found its expression on shellac and vinyl – from the introduction of synagogal music into the Jewish middle-class home to the reinvention of Jewish folk music; from the career of Yiddish theatre songs on Broadway to the rebels of punk.

The history of shellac and vinyl is also a history of Jewish inventors, musicians, composers, music producers, and songwriters. Their music – the sound of the 20th century – was not always “Jewish” music, but still a product of Jewish experience. Jukebox Jewkbox! takes you on a journey of discovery through unfamiliar worlds of popular culture, accompanied by personal stories about records that have changed many a life.

Hardcover book created for exhibition Jukebox Jewkbox! A Century on Shellac and Vinyl, in full colour with 45rpm record included.
