Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's Yarzeit

Last night and today was Rabbi Carlebach's Yartzeit

Rabbi Carlebach used to say hello to people so much that it would take a long time for him to get down the street.

Once his relationship with a non-jew saved someone's life.

A man wearing a yarmulke had his car break down in a crime-ridden neighborhood. A group of criminals surrounded him and were about to mug him when a friend of the criminals asked "Do you know Shlomo Carlebach?"

The man replied, "Yes, everyone knows Shlomo Carlebach, and I am personally quite close with him."

The friend of the muggers said, "Leave him alone, I like his Rabbi." The muggers let him go.

In this way, Rabbi Carlebach taught by his actions the importance of peace between people in the world.
