August 9, 2017….(Schaumburg, IL) JLicense, the only music-licensing agency primarily serving the entire North American Jewish community, debuted this month via its website JLicense.com, giving Jewish organizations the chance to legally and easily license their use of copyrighted material including music and lyrics.

Created by clergy and professionals from within the organized Jewish world, JLicense serves as an all-encompassing licensing agency to meet the many and varied challenges uniquely faced by Jewish organizations.

“JLicense was created to help synagogues and Jewish organizations be compliant with copyright law. Along with the seemingly unlimited potential of technology and program media in our worship services and programming, comes a responsibility to fairly compensate the composers of Jewish music for use of their copyrighted music and lyrics. JLicense offers a convenient way to be compliant and at the same time encourage the composition of new Jewish music by remunerating our composers," said Joe Eglash, Director of  Transcontinental Music Publications.

JLicense  is owned and administered by Transcontinental Music Publications (TMP), the world's leading publisher of Jewish music and a subsidiary of the American Conference of Cantors (ACC).

JLicense is a non-profit organization owned and administered by Transcontinental Music Publications, the world's leading publisher of Jewish music, founded in 1938. JLicense is non-denominational and its licenses serve the entire world.
