About Kol Neshama

Founded in 2000 by Artistic Director Robin Saex Garbose, Kol Neshama is a Los Angeles-based non-profit 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to providing professional artistic training and performance opportunities for girls and women in a Torah-observant setting and to developing an emerging artistic voice through the creation of distinctly Jewish film and stage productions. Our observant Jewish community is teeming with talent yearning to be expressed, yet opportunities for serious artistic exploration are few. Through Kol Neshama’s sixteen years of summer-camp intensives and school year programs, over 400 girls from as far away as Israel, South Africa, Argentina and Germany have experienced the joy and benefit of creative expression while developing their gifts with a Torah perspective. To date, Kol Neshama has produced ten original plays, five musical DVDs, two CDs and three ground-breaking, internationally acclaimed “for women only” feature movie musicals, A Light for Greytowers, The Heart that Sings and Operation Candlelight.
