Shalshelet’s 6th International Festival of New Jewish Liturgical Music is coming next year to Philadelphia on
See the compositions selected for the Festival here.
The mission of Shalshelet* is to enhance spirituality and build community through the creation and dissemination of Jewish sacred music.
We believe that Jewish sacred music has the power to link Jews, affiliated and unaffiliated, across all denominations; that music, when inspired by sacred text, can provide fresh insight and depth, enriching the spiritual lives of Jews and non-Jews alike; and that it is essential to unearth and encourage the creation of such music that is being created all over the world.
The common tie of sacred music will link Jews in a broader and deeper sense of community, and will enhance the vibrancy of the Jewish people.
