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.

He writes about Japan-Israel economic cooperation for the Times of Israel and is a mentor at Samurai House Israel, a Japanese investment fund.

He offers his unique perspective on the religious, cultural and philosophical similarities between the states of Japan and Israel.

The live stream is over. It seems the Netanyahu webcast is running a little late (or someone forgot to turn on the microphone). Maybe they’re on Jewish time. You’ll be able to watch it here, whenever it starts. A separate article will be posted after the feed completes.

From the “Defeat Jihad Summit” held in February 2015.

Rabbi Mike Feuer, educational director of Beit Midrash Sulam Yaakov, joins Yishai to discuss ‘Va’etchanan,’ this week’s Torah portion.

Yishai reflects on an extremely difficult experience he had yesterday — enduring verbal abuse and humiliation, as he attempted to visit the Temple Mount.

Then, in the light of the treatment of Jews at Judaism’s holiest site, the demolitions at Beit El and the Gay Pride March, Yishai discusses with Rabbi Feuer the repetition in “Va’etchanan” of the 10 Commandments and the iconic phrases that crop up throughout the portion, including the line that embodies the core principals of Judaism — the “Shema.” The two also consider the greatest struggles facing modern-day Israel and 21st-century Jewry.

Randol Schoenberg, renowned attorney and president of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, discusses explosive issues with Yishai.

Schoenberg, the prestigious Jewish lawyer recently portrayed in the popular movie, “Woman in Gold,” and Yishai discuss the US Supreme Court’s refusal to allow Jerusalem to be identified as part of Israel on official documents, and its recent decision to recognize same-sex marriage. Then, they debate the Iran deal, coming to very different conclusions. Schoenfeld shares his thoughts on recent developments emerging from the Obama administration.

Baruch Widen, interfaith dialoguer and Arabist, joins Yishai to discuss the pro-Israel trend taking hold among the capital’s Arab population.

The community is applying for Israeli citizenship in unprecedented numbers. Baruch and Yishai consider why.

Rabbi Mottle Wolfe joins Yishai to discuss the contours of the religious-secular divide in the Jewish state.

The two show hosts talk about the phenomenon of the very secular Tel Aviv being a mere five kilometers away from the ultra-Orthodox Bnei Brak. The former celebrates Israel Independence Day, but doesn’t fast on the day that marks the loss of Jewish sovereignty 2,000 years ago. The latter observes the religious fast, but does not take part in the modern celebrations of statehood. They envision a way to move the process of building the third Jewish commonwealth forward.

This is a walk-through the main sanctuary of the Holy Temple…

Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to deconstruct the unique structure of the fifth book of the Torah, Devarim, or Deuteronomy.

Jews around the world are about to begin the weekly reading of the Book of Deuteronomy, a volume which acts as a transcription of Moses’s last speech to the people of Israel. Rabbi Feuer helps explain the volume’s special philosophy.
