The Chailights A Cappella

Get Involved

The ChaiLights are currently holding rolling auditions throughout the year! Are you a singer and interested in joining? Come sit in on a rehearsal (Wednesdays from 7:30-9:30pm) to get a feel for who we are and what we do. If you still like us (which we know you will!) and we like you (no pressure), we’ll invite you back for a formal audition.

Auditions consist of scales, pitch matching, and a solo. Be sure to fill out this form to let us know your interest. If you have further questions, please email us!

Upcoming Events

Book a Gig

The ChaiLights would be honored to perform at your synagogue event, bar/bat mitzvah, wedding, or other special occasion! We can propose our own set list from our repertoire of secular and Hebrew pieces to fit your event. We can also prepare special requests with enough notice.

Interested in bringing some fun A Cappella to your event? Let us know what you’re looking for!


The ChaiLights request an honorarium for all performances (paid by check). Rates are based on distance from Philadelphia, performance length, and any special requests. If the ChaiLights are available for your event, we will provide a performance agreement with this information. Please let us know if you are non-profit or have limited resources as rates could be negotiable pending the circumstances.

Get To Know Us

The Chailights were founded in 2015 as Philadelphia’s only post-collegiate Jewish A Cappella community. We promote Jewish A Cappella music within the entire Philadelphia area and strive to provide a unique, fun, and welcoming environment for all with a passion to sing and learn the meaning behind Jewish cultural pieces as well as performing popular music.

Our repertoire consists of English and Hebrew arrangements ranging from prayers to modern top 40.

We are proud members of KEYhillah and the Contemporary A Cappella League.

The ChaiLights proves that you can still sing after college! Our members consist of professionals and grad students, and we can’t wait to meet you!
