Reb Shlomo Says…

"Have you ever really looked at the Holy Wall? It seems to be made out of big, weathered stones. But the stones of the Kotel are actually made out of tears, the tears of our fathers and mothers, our grandmothers and grandfathers, of every Yid who ever cried in pain. And if you look very, very closely, maybe you'll see that in those holy stones are six million little tears...

But you know, there is a prophecy. The Master of the world promises to wipe away all our tears. And if you listen very carefully, while you look at the Holly Wall, maybe you will hear the stones of the Kotel singing. Maybe you'll hear those holy tears reminding us that G-d will not forget His promises. He will bring comfort to His people with the coming of the Mashiach, may it be soon in our days..."

Our Mission

The mission of the Shlomo Carlebach Foundation is to preserve and disseminate the teachings, music and stories of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, zt"l, and to develop communities which will share the love and joy which he radiated.

A registered non-profit organization in Israel, the Foundation was established in Jerusalem upon the passing of Reb Shlomo in 1994. Today, it is run from Moshav Mevo Modi'im, which was Reb Shlomo's home in Israel from 1976 to 1994.

The Foundation is committed to preserving Reb Shlomo's legacy by producing an On-line Digital Archives, which will be available to the public. The Shlomo Carlebach Heritage Center in Mevo Modi'im is planned to house the archives and include a visitor's center, which will promote his legacy. The Foundation also facilitates the publication of books of Reb Shlomo's teachings and organizes annual events in his memory.
