Shalshelet, the Foundation for New Jewish Liturgical Music, continues an ancient chain of tradition that considers music an integral part of spiritual expression and sacred rite.

The shalshelet (“chain”) note is one of the rarest cantillations in the system of melodic motifs for chanting the books of the Torah aloud. Found only four times in the Five Books of Moses, each time it guides the singing of a verb at a pivotal moment in the narrative. Shalshelet’s International Festival of New Jewish Liturgical Music recognizes and awards excellence in new liturgical composition. The public concert and related workshops which are held throughout the year are supplemented by songbooks and CDs which allow the composers to share their music with individuals and congregations across the nation and around the world.

Shalshelet’s mission is to use music to build bridges both within and outside the Jewish community. Shalshelet’s participants are drawn from across all Jewish denominations—Reform, Conservative, modern Orthodox, Reconstructionist, Havurah, affiliated, and unaffiliated.

In addition, Shalshelet solicits, collects, publishes, and disseminates new compositions without regard to the professional or lay status of the composers. Shalshelet’s international music festival brings together composers, performers, workshop participants, and the public to celebrate and circulate new music set to traditional texts.
