“THE MIDNIGHT RABBI IS HERE TO A-MUSE U”
The power to heal, the power to unite, the power to bridge gaps, the power to build worlds.
U-MUSE: YOUTH AND MUSIC
created by Eli Goldsmith, Jerusalem (formerly London)
inspired by youth everywhere.
Eli Goldsmith, affectionately known as The Midnight Rabbi, treads the streets of Jerusalem in the wee hours of the morning, meeting with youth to provide a listening ear, a compassionate heart, an uplifting voice. He wipes away the darkness as the clear light of day approaches.
The night is dark and the world is at a crazy time in history (the Gemara calls this ‘the end of days’)
We need in such a time real help in fighting all the battles that confront us.
The Midnight Rabbi comes through quiet streets …
Deep conversations, shared meals, the ability to share personal experiences which enlighten us all
Building friendships and bonds for life
Obstacles in life’s winding journey seem straightened, clarified and hopefully overcome.
Potential to develop into a voice and soul for the generations
Much needed fighting power with some true stars shining forth
The sun begins to rise and the darkness is gone
All that is left is the teacher of truth that is now awake in everyone of us, forever …

Ari is looking forward with great excitement to returning to Israel for a further year of study and experience. His journey has led him, through music, to reconnect to his talented disciplined positive self. Ari has already recorded with top producers in Jerusalem. His dream is just beginning …
A group of young students, talented musicians, began directing their attention on studies and personal growth, after a time of confusion and drifting. The music room gave them the much-needed chill time at night and during their breaks from day-time study. Their music abilities soared, their studies became balanced and focused, and their personal selves were transformed.
Eli has received abundant positive feedback from proud and grateful parents and youth.
Dear Eli, the Midnight Rabbi – My son really needs your support right now. He is in a very bad situation and refuses to accept help. Maybe you could possibly get through to him. The sooner the better as I feel that time is running out. … Dear Eli, the Midnight Rabbi – Just wanted to tell you that my son came home last night in a good mood and said he had a very good time with you and appreciated the time he spent with you. Please keep up a connection with him.
Hey The Midnight Rabbi – it’s Mo – thanks for everything, I had a great year with you – hope to see you in Israel again soon.
To the Midnight Rabbi – thank you for chilling with us at 2 in the morning after an emotional night when our friend died in a car crash. We need to be more responsible for our actions, think how many times we drove around drugged out of our minds and it could have been us. We must change and this is the place and the time to make the best of ourselves.
Music has the ability to uplift and transform! We need U to help us actualise that transformation!
