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.

*The word shalshelet means chain in Hebrew. It is also the name of a rare accent for chanting sacred texts that occurs only four times in the  Torah.

Shalshelet is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that is supported by a grant from the Rita Poretsky Foundation and individual donors.
