Little Treasures Are Out There: Uncovering the Wealth of Jewish Musical Creativity Throughout the World

“Styles ranged from folk to jazz to pop to hasidic….They were all well crafted and useful additions to the Jewish Liturgical repertoire, which is, after all, what Shalshelet is aiming for…. the variety was remarkable.”

—Joan Reinthaler
Music critic, The Washington Post

“Music creates a bond with the lasting values, whether love, or a sense of transcendence. It brings out the humanity of people…. their words (the poets) will echo one theme: the writings of Jewish liturgy.”

—Christopher Stollar
The Washington Times

“Music can bring Jews closer to their religion and a new nonprofit is dedicated to making that happen….”

— Aaron Leibel
Arts Editor, The Washington Jewish Weekly

“Our community contains a wealth of creativity that deserves to be widely known. All praise to Shalshelet: The Foundation for New Jewish Liturgical Music for its efforts in uncovering and encouraging these efforts and presenting them in these festivals.”

–Leon Cohen
Op-Ed Editor, The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle
