Shalsheles first introduced itself to the Jewish music scene in 1999. Shalsheles is a vocal musical group singing its own original compositions. The group consists of the composer Yitzchok Rosenthal, Baruch Aryeh, Chaim Block, and Simcha Sussman.

Shalsheles' goal is to produce an updated musical sound, while remaining connected to the soul of Jewish Music and its past via a "chain," hence the name Shalsheles - meaning a chain or link within a Dynasty, the Dynasty being Jewish Music.

To date, Shalsheles has produced five albums, a single entitled Dreaming, and was heavily involved in a third album entitled Rozoh D'Shabbos (the songs were composed by Yitzchok Rosenthal). They have performed in select concerts throughout the world.

The members of the group look upon Shalsheles as a hobby, one in which they hope to positively influence Jewish Music. Shalsheles would like to thank all of its fans and supporters for all the positive feedback and encouragement that they received throughout the years . It is because of this that they hope, G-d willing, to continue in their efforts on behalf of Jewish Music.

Shalsheles Jr.

In each of the first three Shalsheles albums , there was always one song which featured a child soloist. These songs and the child vocalist were always extremely welcomed by the listeners . It was then that the idea came about to create a children’s group (not choir) in the mold of Shalsheles and hence Shalsheles Junior was born.

Shalsheles Junior exploded onto the Jewish music scene with its first album in 2006 and quickly became a crowd favorite at concerts. Additional they recorded a two song Cd in honor of the 40th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem. While it has been some time since the first album, and while the original members have since grown to adult status, a new crop of Shalsheles Junior members are now in the midst of recording the next Shalsheles Junior album. Look for this album in the winter/spring of 2011.
