About Us

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, we have performed at the University of Delaware, Rutgers University, synagogues and JCCs in Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia and the Jewish A Cappella Festival in New York City. Furthermore, we have competed five times in Kol HaOlam, a collegiate Jewish a cappella competition in Washington, D.C.

Where can you hear our music?

Mezumenet is thrilled to announce that our second album, Mezzin’ Around has been released for digital download! You can purchase the entire CD for $10 on iTunes. Physical copies will be available soon.

Our debut CD, Mezmerized, was released in October 2012 and can be purchased for $15 on our website or on iTunes. Additionally, our single Shabbat Medley is featured on Volume 3 of the Best of Jewish A Cappella (BOJAC) CD.
