“Kesher Shir” (Connection Through Song), brings together Jewish musicians from a variety of backgrounds and stages in their work, to study, compose, build relationships, and challenge the status quo, in order to foster lasting musical change in communal prayer. The venture’s focus is collaboration between songwriters and cantors, particularly around the creation of new musical forms for contemporary synagogue worship.
It will build relationships through text study, create partnerships which foster the composition of new material, and begin to re-vision how music can be more meaningfully integrated with liturgy and transformative worship, inside and outside the synagogue walls, for diverse populations and musical sensibilities. Ultimately, by empowering musical leaders, the entire Jewish community will benefit.
