The NEW Shlomo Carlebach Heritage Center
Mevo Modi'im is the moshav which Reb Shlomo’s followers founded in 1976 and which was Reb Shlomo's home in Israel from 1976 to 1994. His followers dreamed of a "Living Memorial" that would allow visitors to learn about and experience the life and times of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, zt”l. The new Shlomo Carlebach Heritage Center in Mevo Modi'im is the manifestation of this dream. The Heritage Center will continue to grow and expand in it's resources and services.
The Heritage Center includes:
An exhibit of the time-line of Reb Shlomo’s life in which visitors have an experiential journey into his teachings, music and the world in which he lived, through concerts, film, group learning sessions, etc.
The Legacy Archives, a work in progress, available for researchers to study Reb Shlomo’s deep teachings. It also provides a pedagogical resource center to make educational materials available to teachers.
An Education Center of diverse educational activities catering to a wide spectrum of audiences, both individuals and especially organized groups. The educational programs operate in conjunction with the content and messages conveyed in the exhibit. Longer seminars that allow participants to deepen their knowledge and personal connections to Reb Shlomo’s teachings and philosophy are offered.
A Performing Arts Center, with state-of-the-art facilities, will attract a variety of visitors, with both an indoor theater and an outdoor amphitheater.
A Guest Center is planned, for housing guests for both weekday stays and Shabbat and holidays. There will be facilities suitable for students as well as family and tourist class rooms.
