The Shlomo Carlebach Legacy Archives
Under an agreement with Reb Shlomo's heirs (his daughters, Neshama and Nedara), the Foundation has taken on the project of establishing an archives of historic recordings of teachings, music and stories told by Reb Shlomo. These recordings span a period of four decades (1966-1994). Since Reb Shlomo left this world in 1994, his followers from around the world have been gathering audio and video recordings of Reb Shlomo as well as photographs and personal memories, all of which is being combined into a digital archives. To date over 18,000 audio hours and 1,500 video hours, donated from private collections from around the world, all have been converted to digital files.
Our mission is to preserve, publish and distribute this Archives of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, zt”l, as a Jewish National Treasure. The Foundation has made it a priority to undertake the enormous task of quality upgrading the original recordings, and transcribing and building the accessible Digital Archives. Our vision is to form a permanent Archives that will become the preeminent vehicle through which Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach’s life’s work will be protected and made accessible to people throughout the world.
