Product Information

A Kabbalistic Approach to Fixing the World by Shlomo Carlebach.

In this never before released talk by the late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, we are exposed to his deeply spiritual and simple truths, lessons and inspirations. Interspersed in the teachings are wonderful melodies composed by Rabbi Carlebach, who offers this profound yet simple truth: “When you see something wrong with the world you are the one to fix it”.

Excerpt from recording: “Every day God needs different things from us. You know one of the great Rabbis passed away. And his children came to the holy visionary…and he says to them, “What was the most important thing for your father?” so they said, “For our father, the most important thing is what you do right now.” You know most people have those general ideas — they know what to do forever — but when it comes to the moment they have no idea what to do with it. I know every week is Shabbos; I know every year is Rosh Hashanah; I know every year is Yom Kippur, good; but what are you doing right now? And usually they always do the wrong thing because they are not in tune with the moment, special privilege. You know something? You can be the greatest scholar in the world and not know… Sometimes a person asks you a question and what they need right now you will never know… It’s so deep to know. What are you supposed to do right this minute?”

A Reb Shlomo Treasure - experience a small revelation!

A rare and invaluable recording of the great Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Rabbi Carlebach's teachings are known as 'Shlomo Torah' among his students and are unique in the entire history of Torah teachings. While to be sure there are many, many, many brilliant sages who lived and whose teachings we are blessed to possess in Aramaic, Hebrew, Arabic, English and a host of other languages, Reb Shlomo primarily addressed English speakers in an attempt to expose the incredible beauty of Torah (the Bible, its holidays and applications) to audiences who never had the chance to meet a Torah scholar at the very highest level. Rabbi Carlebach was studying in Lakewood with the giant Torah sage, Rabbi Aaron Kotler when the Lubavitch Chasidim's last Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson suggested he had a talent through his music and ability to speak to people with genuine warmth and love, that he needed to leave the private domain of the Halls of Study and go out into the world to teach. And teach he did for the rest of his life. The first, revolutionary composer of modern Jewish folk songs with melodies that are sung in Synagogues and at Weddings worldwide today: all over America, Switzerland, Israel, France and elsewhere, he also taught and told Chasidic Tales that contain life lessons at each concert. When visiting Synagogues in Arizona or other places in the USA or his family's synagogue in New York City he would deliver addresses in informal gatherings ranging from 9 to 50 attendees. At these sessions he would synthesize his vast knowledge of the the Bible, Talmud, Zohar and the entire wealth of Chasidic Masters that taught from the beggining of the movement in the 1700s through the present. Reb Shlomo was able to bring to life the teachings of the Izbitcher Rebbe's teachings in particular - deeply insightful teachings locked to all but those with the most insightful intellect due to their profundity. Such teachings by an accomplished sage who has spent a lifetime ...
