Are you a fan of Jewish music? If the answer is yes, you’ve certainly heard of the Shira Chadasha Boys Choir, directed by Rabbi Nachman Seltzer of Ramat Beit Shemesh. Let’s hear from Rabbi Seltzer about his choir and how it got started, as well as some of its high points over the years.

Tuesday, December 08, 2015

When Nachman Seltzer decided to launch his choir 12 years ago, he already had a name in the Jewish entertainment world as a former soloist for Miami Boys Choir. A kollel yungerman, Rabbi Seltzer waited to open his choir until his rebbi,RavNissanKaplan, said the time was right. But once it was, there was no stopping him. How did the choir get started? “I took out an ad in one of the local ad magazines,” Rabbi Seltzer relates. “Kids came from all over Yerushalayim to try out, and we put together a nice group. It was a little tough in the beginning, we started with 20 kids and went down to 10. It stayed at ten for a while, but then eventually it started to grow.”
