Introduction - Jewish Outlook

Welcome To Jewish Outlook



   Your soul also needs food  and vitamins. It sometimes even needs to be fixed. The desperately needed soul drugs, such as Joy, Love, and Hope, seem to elude us. This book includes some soul drugs prescribed by a great soul doctor, Rebbe Shlomo Carlebach Z”tl.

Rebbe Shlomo Carlebach traveled all over the world fixing people’s broken hearts and souls by means of his songs, stories, and teachings. He was a brilliant scholar, masterful composer and performer reaching out to millions, during his more than four decades of public appearances in thousands of cities all over the world. But more than all this, Rebbe Shlomo was a friend to all. He greeted everyone with a hug and an uplifting word. He taught us by example how to live in harmony with the world.

I am one of the millions of people who were uplifted and inspired by Rebbe Shlomo Carlebach. In this book, I would like to reveal to you some of the many gems of wisdom which I learned from my holy Rebbe.



Daily Torah Quote

Joke of the day

poor man came to the house of an elderly couple. Unfortunately they had nothing in the house to give him except an old piece of fish “from before the time of Noah’s Ark and the flood.” Out of desperation, they served him this fish and the next thing they knew he had to be rushed to the hospital. The elderly couple, of course, accompanied him to the hospital but, unfortunately, watched him die in front of their eyes.

At the funeral the elderly woman was crying uncontrollably and her husband was having a hard time trying to console her. She was hysterically screaming, “The fish killed him, the fish killed him.”

The husband who couldn’t stand to see his wife in such a state comforted her and said, “My darling, it’s really not that bad. We had the merit of fulfilling three good deeds: Welcoming guests, visiting the sick, and escorting the deceased!”
