Temple Shaari Emeth is very pleased to welcome Sheldon Low for three concerts as our Artist-In-Residence for 2014. Sheldon Low is one of the brightest young stars in Jewish rock music today, performing rock concerts, ‘Light Up Shabbat’ services and seminars, and leading Artist-in-Residence programs in Jewish communities throughout North America. Sheldon has a strong fan base among youth audiences, regularly making appearances as a headliner and song leader at various national youth group conventions, professional conferences, and Jewish festivals, as well as dozens of Jewish camps each summer. Widely known for his exhilarating live performances and soulful services, Sheldon regularly features local musicians, choirs, and soloists on stage or on the bima. His popularity has continued to grow over the past decade, as a performer, composer, leader, and most importantly, as a Jewish educator.
Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Sheldon is a third-generation songleader who, from an early age, developed a strong Jewish identity attending many Jewish educational institutions and youth organizations. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Tufts University and spent nine months working as an engineer, before leaving that job to build musical bridges to a new generation as a Jewish rock star (see his videos on this web page for the story).
Since his Jewish music career began, Sheldon has released four albums. His recordings have been featured in numerous nationally distributed compilation albums including NFTY Ruach 5767; and both of his children's albums ("It’s All Challah To Me" and "Look At Me") have been widely distributed by PJ Library. In the spring of 2011, Sheldon was featured on the cover of L'Chaim Magazine. Listen to some of Sheldon Low's music on this virtual jukebox, and scroll down for MP3 downloads of some of his songs. Please join us for each of these three exceptional and complimentary family events at Temple Shaari Emeth.
