Ket· zev /'kat-zev/ n

Founded in 1997, we are Johns Hopkins's only Jewish a cappella group on campus. The name Ketzev comes from the Hebrew word for rhythm. Our repertoire consists of a variety of genres, including original arrangements of American rock, Israeli pop, and American Jewish music. Since our establishment, Ketzev has participated in events such as the Kol Ha'Olam competition (Washington, DC), Perfect Pitch (Highland Park, IL), and the Philadelphia Jewish Collegiate A Cappella competition. We perform for public and private events, and continue to spread our music around Hopkins and the local Baltimore community.
