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.

The Yishai Fleisher Show is back! This week, the beloved Spiritual Cafe series with Rabbi Mike Feuer on the Torah portion of “Ki Tetze” – going out to war. Yishai and Rav Mike deal with the complex dichotomy of the commandment to retain the consciousness of both hate for Amalek and compassion for the other & Biblical divorce between man and women but not between man and God. A must-hear for your Shabbat preparation!

The Temple Institute posted this video from August 11th, showing how Muslims really act on the Temple Mount while the Israeli police stand by. Islamic behavior like this happens all the time. After watching this, does anyone believe the Muslims actually consider the Temple Mount holy, or is this only about preventing Jews from praying […]

Matisyahu answered all the antisemites and BDS supporters at the Sunsplash Festival with his rendition of “If I Forget Thee O’ Jerusalem.”

Yishai discusses the tide of performers coming to Israel, and the tide of anti-Iran deal Democratic senators rising up.

It takes guts to overcome the anti-Israel bias and to fly in to perform in Israel. But that is exactly what some performers are doing, like pop superstar Mariah Carey, who performed in front of 12,000 fans at Rishon LeZions’s Live Park Amphitheater. Elie Pieprz, Founder of the International Division of the Counsel of Judea & Samaria and VOI’s Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan join Yishai to discuss the tide of performers coming to Israel, and the tide of anti-Iran deal Democratic senators rising up.

Yishai is joined by David Isaac Simpkins, a convert and former US soldier.

Meet David Issac Simpkins, who spent ten years in the US military, including fighting in Afghanistan, and four years becoming an officer in West Point where he became interested in Judaism and subsequently converted. Hear Simpkins along with Rabbi Kenny Cohen, the founding rabbi of the Young Israel Century City, Los Angeles ( who helped Simpkins convert) tell Yishai about David’s remarkable journey.

Jerusalem Post op-ed editor Seth Frantzman talks with fellow new father Yishai.

They discuss the fact that Seth’s wife is Ethiopian, and talk about that community’s special customs surrounding childbirth — and how they reflect the state of Israeli society. Also, Seth reports on the Jerusalem Wine Festival — at least whatever he remembers of it from his alcohol haze.

Sephardi Jews begin saying Selichot prayers in the beginning of the month of Elul. Here’s a video from 2013 of what the prayers looked like at the Kotel. Powerful.

Arab affairs analyst Bassem Eid discusses the ever-changing landscape of the conflict-ridden region with Yishai, sitting in for Dan Diker.
ISIS is attempting to stop tourism from flourishing in the Sinai, a goal towards which Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi continues to work. Meanwhile, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is forced to accept a much-reduced territory as his kingdom, as millions of Syrians run for safer havens.
