We are Chosen Family! The past 13 years, SLBC has truly come of age, growing into a Chosen Family built on a deeply layered history of experiences, trust and connection — and it’s all because of YOU!
Get your hands UP and raise your voices LOUD – Shalom, Salaam, Peace! A thousand teens sing it loud and STRONG with Rick Recht.

Sharing this healing prayer for my family, friends, and community. El na r’fa na la — Moses offered this short and heartfelt prayer for his sister, Miriam… please heal her soul.
What the world needs now is LOVE! Top stars in Jewish music and the Songleader Boot Camp community share this song of love with you. Share the love now and spread this joy and positivity to YOUR family, friends, and community!
These sweet souls. These gorgeous voices. This incredible Songleader Boot Camp community gives me hope!
“Imagine where we’ve been, what we’ve been through, imagine how far we have come, what we can do. Imagine peace on earth, closer than it seems, when we imagine with our will, we’ll always find our dreams.” Imagine… Israel!
As we celebrate the life & legacy of MLK, it’s difficult and profoundly sad how poignant these words STILL are today. Lots of work to be done…
Feeling deep GRATITUDE for the indescribable ’Something’ in the breath, the songs, the truth, and even the spaces between. Loved sharing this time and energy with my sweet friend (and Jewish Star!) Greta Rosenstock.
In memory of those we’ve lost with enduring hope that there WILL be peace in the world. “Yihyeh Shalom” is the first Jewish song I wrote. So special to sing this song with one of my all-time favorite souls – Happie Hoffman.
Sukat Shalom — may we all experience a “shelter of peace” in this holiday season and throughout the coming year. So much gratitude to Lucy Greenbaum for lending your gorgeous voice and spirit to this song.
In these times of reflection, we peel back the layers in search of our lowest common denominator… and we find it in the very core of our being — a heart. We are blessed to have hearts to love each other. Loved singing this with one of the sweetest hearts I know, my dear friend Sheldon Low!
Our world stands on 3 things — al shlosha d’varim. An inspirational visual on the explosive energy of teens to help us see possibilities of hope in the coming year and well beyond!
“Always” is a song I wrote about the symbiotic relationship between G!d and human beings — how the connection is very much like that of a parent to a child — how we profoundly affect each other in SO many ways.
Now, more than ever, we CAN and NEED to be the change we wish to see in our world — Tomorrow Today!
Like Moses, there are some truly super human parents out there who engage in excruciating challenges and choices helping their children survive and thrive every day – a divine struggle. This song is for you…
GLORIA! The Recht fam went for the Cup on this one for our fav St. Louis Blues singin’ Rick’s new version of the Blues’ WINNING anthem – Gloria. GO BLUUUUUUUES!!!!!!!!
With every breath we take, we have an opportunity to acknowledge the divine that surrounds us. So grateful to sing “Halleluyah” (Psalm 150 version) with my dear and incredibly talented friends, Cantor Shira Lissek & Coleen Dieker at the 2019 SLBC National Conference!
A super sweet, super sweat, summer camp song!
Proud to share this new song – ‘Here for You,’ shot in a sacred place where I walk almost every day. I’ve cherished sharing time with my Tal here… in our ‘Enchanted Forest.’
A new Yihyu L’ratzon with my dear friend, Laura Lebedun Kerch. May these words and intentions contribute love to the Oneness of the world.
Al Tira (have no fear) – my hope that ALL of our children thrive with love and the strength to surrender, recognize, and embrace their truest and most beautiful selves. This song is dedicated to my Kobi
