You Never Know: the Full Movie


You Never Know

There are two questions you can ask another human being: “What are you?” and “Who are you?” If you ask “What are you” – you destroy the world. If you ask “Who are you?” you build the world…”
(Shlomo Carlebach).

Rabbi, folksinger and composer, Shlomo Carlebach is considered to be the foremost Jewish religious songwriter of our time. He touched millions of Jews and non-Jews around the world.The film takes you to a Journey that senses and searches for that touch…

The film mixes Hebrew and English a lot. Go with it.

    This video took me on a little musical journey today, firstly because it reminded me how much I have loved Shlomo's music going on 40 years now. I was introduced to him by a college friend in the late 60s. I still consider his album, "Live At The Village Gate, to be his finest, before all the co-opting and orchestration. To abbreviate what could be a long story, I clicked on the link for Mikdash Melekh and was taken somewhere else on iTunes, so I did a little exploring around on Amazon while listening to some of my favorite pieces.

    Amazon showed that the most popular mp3 download by far was "Esso Einai," which is a fine piece of music, the words taken from Tehilim. My favorites though, go in a different direction completely. Mimcomcha, Shifchi, and one which he only recorded twice on three albums, V'zocher my favorite, and others as well, of course. When I first heard Pischu li from the Village Gate album, I immediately realized I had written an almost identical song from the same passage, only mine was in ⁴⁄₄ time as compared to his ¾ time signature. That brought back more memories. I had decided at that time the passages, in some way, must indicate their own music.

    Well I have spent most of the day kvelling and now it is time to get to important matters such as chess. "Who am I?" That is not easy to define any more than "what am I?" "What am I in the process of becoming?" Now there is the real question.

  2. "Shlomo Carlebach is considered to be the foremost Jewish religious songwriter of our time." what complete nonsense.

  3. Benzion Shenker might be the foremost (but unknown) song writer. I used to think the nigunim I discovered he composed were hundreds of years old. But whodya think is the "foremost" composer ? Lou Reed? Bob Dylan?

  4. Ahh…You're Litvish, small-minded resentment is showing! And most of Bentzion Shenker's music were Moditzcher niggunim.

Poet Erez Biton, who was awarded the Israel Prize for Literature on Yom Ha’Atzmaut, used the occasion to warn against sponsors of the Boycott Israel movement. “Strident voices are being heard in the world including those who are challenging the very existence of the State of Israel,” he said. “There are even those among them […]


Yishai is joined in-studio by Ata Farhat, chairman of the Druze Zionist Council, to talk about his community’s celebration of Israeli independence. Though of a different religion and culture, the Druze fight in Israel’s wars and consider themselves an integral part of the Israeli nation-state. Find out why. Then, Yishai rants about the beauty of Israeli independence. He says that while Israel’s enemies paint the Jewish state as foreign to the Middle East landscape, the truth is that there is nothing more organic — more holistic — than the Jewish people being back in Judea. Finally, for his “Spiritual Cafe” segment, Yishai is joined by Rabbi Mike Feuer to discuss issues of Jewish statehood. Is there such a thing as “good” post-Zionism, for example? Listen in!

‘Zionism in Animation’, aims to tell the story of Zionism in a series of 100 short animated clips, and is the brainchild of Shlomo Blass, head of Rogatka.

Yishai broadcasts a speech delivered by Miriam Peretz, the mother of two fallen IDF soldiers, Uriel and Eliraz, during a “Friends of the IDF” dinner. In her address, she talks about her sacrifice, which she believes is necessary in the fight for the Jewish State. Then, Yishai reads a story he wrote, called “Zikaron” (remembrance), one passage of which is as follows: “In that one moment, I though of gratitude: I am so thankful to you, fallen paratrooper, fallen Jew, fallen brother.” Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by former MK Dr. Aryeh Eldad, former surgeon-general of the IDF and head of plastic surgery at Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem. He says that if the state of Israel is the thesis of Zionism, then the Holocaust is the antithesis, and the days of remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust and the fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism is the synthesis.

Amazing new NBN video on Olim who love Israel. Why do YOU love Israel?

Yishai takes the occasion of Israel’s Remembrance Day for Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism — and last week’s Holocaust Remembrance Day — to express his view of Jewish victimhood. He says that while we commemorate Jewish and Israeli victims, the ideology of Jew-hatred is alive and well. Then, Yishai is joined by Shlomo Blass, the director of Rogatka, a studio that creates short, pro-Israel videos. Among the founders of Caroline Glick’s satirical Latma series, that poked fun at the Left, he is now launching a new project: “Zionism in Animation” — 100 short videos on different aspects of Zionism, including important historical moments and figures. Finally, Yishai is treated to a cameo appearance by VOI’s Pinchas Orban, who talks about the rationality behind belief in God.

Yishai is joined in-studio by Arab affairs analyst Bassem Eid to talk about the Temple Mount, the Holocaust and the Arab concern for dignity over identity. Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by David Bederman, coach to successful CEOs and entrepreneurs, to talk about Israeli independence. He says that Israel does not have a PR problem, but rather an identity crisis. Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by Jerusalem Post editorial page editor Matthew Wagner to discuss the question of the peculiar phenomenon of the Left being in a global coalition with Islamic fundamentalists?

Well worth watching to the very end…

Yishai is joined in-studio by 88-year-old Kate Bernath, grandmother of his wife, Malkah, to hear her Holocaust testimonial: What was it like as a Hungarian Jew getting off the train at Auschwitz, and how it felt to have your mother separated from you forever by Dr. Mengele.

Yishai is joined in-studio by Walter Bingham, 91 — rescued from the Nazis as a Polish child on the Kindertransport and ended up fighting against them with the British — shares his memories of Kristallnacht and of facing the German Foreign Minister who was first to hang at Nuremberg.

Then, VOI Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the relationship between the Jewish holidays established in the past and the new holidays born in the modern era of Jewish statehood. They point out that Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, the Day of Remembrance for the Fallen Soldiers of Israel and Victims of Terrorism, Israel Independence Day and Jerusalem Day all are marked during the “counting of the Omer” — the 50 days between Passover and Shavuot (Pentecost).
