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).In 1966, at a festival in Berkley, between Pete Seeger and “Jefferson Airplane,” a young Rabbi came on stage with a guitar and began to sing. Shlomo Carlebach was a brilliant young Torah scholar who had been sent by the Lubavitcher Rebbe to bring Torah to the hippies of San Francisco. But when his love for them transgressed the boundaries of halacha (Jewish Law), he was shunned by the Orthodox establishment. Carlebach once said in a radio interview that he composed no less than 4,000 original melodies. Thirteen years ago he passed away, penniless; today his music fills concert halls and in almost every Jewish community there is a community of his followers.Awards & FestivalsAwards: Special Jury Citation, Religion Today Film Festival, Italy 2008 Festivals:Detroit Jewish Film Festival 2010Austin Jewish Film festival - 2009Denver Jewish Film Festival- 2009Los Angeles Israeli Film Festival - USA, 2008Religion Today Film Festival, Italy 2008Warsaw Jewish Motifs Film Festival - Poland, 2008Palm Beach International Film Festival - USA, 2008Thessaloniki DocMarket - Greece, 2008Jerusalem Jewish Film Festival - Israel, 2007New York Israeli Film Festival- 2008Brazil Religion Film Festival, 2009Community Screening:Akica Academy, Detroit - USA 2009Moriah Congregation, Chicago - USA 2009JCC of the Palasades, NJ - USA 2008East Bay JCC - USA, 2008JCC Manhattan - USA 2008Brooklyn - USA 2008Congregation Sherith Israel, Silver Spring , MD, 2009Chai Point, Milwaukee, WN, 2009Young Israel Shomrai Emunah, Nashville, TN, 2009
