Were The Lubavitcher Rebbe and Reb Shlomo zealots?

Featured Video : Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach rebbe story | רבי שלמה קרליבך סיפור על הרבי Some 30 years ago, when Judy and I were living in Montreal, we had the ‘zchut’-merit to host Reb Shlomo zt’l about four or five times a year. Judy used to organize these visits. On some occasions, he would do a concert in a shul, or play for students on campus, and once he also came to the high school I was teaching at. And sometimes he would come just for an evening of learning at our home. Believe it or not, Judy would spend about a month calling people to personally invite them to his gatherings.

Parshat Balak - Beware of the dangers of Assimilation (and the 3 Weeks)

Highlights One of the most profound and influential comments ever made about Jewish destiny was made by the pagan prophet Bilaam in this week’s sedra: As I see them from the mountain tops, Gaze on them from the heights, Behold it is a people that dwells alone, Not reckoned among the nations. (Num. 23:9) To many – Jews and non-Jews, admirers and critics alike – that has seemed to epitomise the Jewish situation: a people that stands outside history and the normal laws governing the fate of nations. Reb Shlomo zt"l when introducing his song - "Gam Ki Eileich- though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I shall not fear any evil, for You are with me," (Psalm 23), with a lamentation and
