Shalom Dear Friend Whom I May Not Have Met Yet:
I would like to share with you a little bit about who I am and what the Kabbalah Kabbaret means to me.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York in the same neighborhood
as: Zero Mostel, Mel Brooks, The Weinstein Brothers and more recently Mike Tyson.
I have been a Beatnik, a Socialist, a wrestler, a folk singer, a football player, and a hippy, and now I am Rappin'.
I left the Hebrew faith for forty years. The first twenty I was a missionary atheist railing against everybody's G-d. More interested in Marx (Karl not Groucho) than Moses. The next next twenty years I was anything but Jewish. I have been buddhist, nudist, a yogi on pogey. I have twirled with Dervishes and sat in Sweat Lodges with Natives. And, now I am back. Having been prepared by all my spiritual teachers whom I honor to this day. To those living and departed who have helped me return to the faith of my birth, I am forever grateful.
But I would not be Jewish today if it had not been for the Kabbalah. Finally, in this supposedly mystical study I have found practical answers to questions about the Torah that kept me from embracing my heritage. These insights and spiritual techonologies I have put into stories, song, Rap and comedy, and little bit of interactive participation.
The Kabbalah Kabbaret represents more than 12 years of immersion into its illumination and practices. And now I get to sing and tell stories about its practical wonders. In addition, I love conducting the workshops in which we can get a little deeper and a little higher. I have been in the performance business for more than 40 years. I have been privileged to appear in movies, TV shows, live theatre performances as writer, producer, actor, director. I thank G-d I am able to harvest a life time of experience and a little talent to bring to you this production of Kabbalah Kabaret.
Some of the content delivered in story, song and rap include: Tikun, or karma, cause and effect; Its All Light; We Will Love; The Rabbi's Boys; Torah Rap; The Three Column Tree; Shimon bar Yochai; Klipot, Positive Restriction, Ana Bekoach and Yud Hey Vav Hey DNA. Add a pinch of Yiddish, a dash of Hebrew and lo' and behold the mystery and history of Kabbalah delivered to you hot and fresh! From Moses to Madonna.
Future productions include biographies of: Zero Mostel, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, Rodney Dangerfield.
Looking forward to talking with you and how we can work together, have some fun, raise some consciousness, share the light, raise some money and save the world.
Shalom, Shalom Jerome
