Today (Thursday), 16 Marcheshvan, is the Yarzheit of Reb Shlomo Carlebach z”l. Reb Shlomo passed away on this day in 1994, 22 years ago.
Every year, hundreds of his admirers visit his grave in Jerusalem where he is buried overlooking the Jerusalem hills.
But his is no ordinary memorial service.
Those gathered sing many of Carlebach’s famous niggunim (melodies) and songs.
Below you can find some exclusive photos and video from the gravesite:
