The Foundation for New Jewish Liturgical Music seeks to foster new music for Jewish congregational use and expose wider audiences to innovations in Jewish religious music. Shalshelet promotes the creation and spread of new Jewish liturgical music by looking for the answers to these questions: Which congregations are singing different tunes? Who is writing and leading these new compositions? How can these compositions be found, collected, and shared?
The word Seliha (plural- Selihot) means forgiveness in Hebrew.
