In the summer of 2014 Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi passed away, just a few weeks from his ninetieth birthday. His legacy in the worlds of Judaism, Ecumenism, World Peace, Mystical Spirituality, and just plain Joy, will live on. In this episode, I talk with Cantor Richard Kaplan, of Oakland, California who was a student and friend of Reb Zalman and even received his ordination as a Cantor from him. We discuss Zalman’s history as well as his many contributions. We even hear some of the music he composed, performed by Richard, both live and recorded. Thousands of people around the world consider Reb Zalman to be the most important influence on their lives.

 

While we usually talk about issues in the Christian community, it’s important that we recognize and

learn from people of other faiths who make important contributions. Zalman is definitely one of them.
