Kaufman Music Center was founded by Dr. Tzipora H. Jochsberger in 1952 as a community school for pre-conservatory music training. Originally called The Hebrew Arts School for Music and Dance (HAS), the school soon became a vital part of the community and grew to attract people from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.
