New Members and Tour

Welcome to another exciting year of a cappella! Rhythm and Jews is excited to introduce two new members of the group: Carter Grieve and Katy Surhigh.

This year, RnJ will be touring the San Francisco area. If you’d like us to sing at your bat/bar mitzvah, synagogue, school, or any other event, please feel free to reach out to us by email at


Fall quarter was a blast, and our tour of New Hampshire and Boston was spectacular! Winter quarter was amazing, and it included a trip to Kol HaOlam, the National Collegiate Jewish a cappella Competition ( While we didn’t place in the top three teams, we still had an amazing time making friends with other Jewish a cappella groups.

Spring quarter means we have graduating seniors, who will leave some mighty big shoes to fill. And with this comes elections. We’ll be announcing new officers shortly.
