The son of the Victor Geller, founder of Kiruv (helping draw Jews closer to their own heritage) and an active participant in the Yeshiva University Israel summer programs, Reb Moish Geller was steeped in the world of Torah.

From a very young age, Moish was close with Reb Shlomo Carlebach, listening to his records numerous times a day from age 6, and then finally meeting him in person.

Moish was 36 years old when he was first exposed to the Rainbow Gatherings and the scene at the Grateful Dead concerts. He discovered the connection between the Torah of Reb Shlomo and the "Torah of the Dead" as he calls it.

Eventually, Reb Moish became Reb Shlomo's closest assistant, spending days and nights with the holy Singing Rabbi, and getting the opportunity to see the genius up close.

Dedicating his life to continue Reb Shlomo's work, Reb Moish can often be found at Rainbow Gatherings, telling Reb Shlomo stories, hugging good Jews and sharing his sweet thoughts of Torah.

Tune in to hear "Reb Shlomo stories" you have never heard before, to find the connection between the deaths of Jerry Garcia and Reb Shlomo, and to understand ancient secrets relevant only to today's world.
