“I Need A Rebbe”: Exploring the Rebbe-Talmid Relationship

The Rebbe-Talmid (Teacher-Student) relationship holds immense significance within our cherished mesorah (tradition). In this captivating music video, we endeavor to capture the growth and splendor of this relationship from both the perspective of the Talmid and the Rebbe. Our aim is to shed light on the profound depth of this bond, surpassing the mere exchange of knowledge. Judaism calls upon us to embrace a profound approach to life, which entails the Talmid seeking a meaningful connection with a Rebbe, while the Rebbe, in turn, provides genuine inspiration and guidance to navigate the various challenges encountered during the formative years of development.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our two main sponsors: Yeshivat Mevaseret and Camp Lavi. Without your support this would not have been possible.

We would also like to express our appreciation to all our other sponsors and individuals who contributed to the creation of this music video.

We sincerely hope that you find joy and inspiration in this production.

LYRICS:

I been fighting these wars on my own
I been falling for way too long
I need a rebbe
I need a rebbe
Show me the way back home
I need a rebbe
Someone to tell me
That I’m not alone
That I’m not alone

Yeah, I been on the run and now I’m running out of breath
I been through so much stress and can’t even stress how much I need to get off my chest
I’m only a rookie, I need help from one of the vets
Falling down into a dark abyss, that’s why I need somebody to talk with me in depth
I need a rebbe
A rebbe who will understand when I’m going under and can’t even stand
A rebbe who will console me when my mind plays games and put the controller in my hand
A rebbe who will see me drowning and drag me out to dry land
A rebbe who will speak to me before he even speaks to me, I need him so bad
And if I’m the one who’s lost, then Rebbe, who’s the one tryna find who
I don’t know who told me I don’t need a kesher but it’s sheker, not true
I’m not gonna stop, I been doing everything wrong
I hope we cross paths soon
‘Aseh lecha rav’, I been on my own for too long
Rebbe, I’m waiting on you

Oh, I been fighting these wars on my own, oh
I been falling for way too long
I need a rebbe
I need a rebbe
Show me the way back home
I need a rebbe
Someone to tell me
That I’m not alone
That I’m not alone

First off, I wanna hear all the struggles that you have been through
Want you to share all the troubles you gotten into
It’s insane to blame for all the pain
‘Cause it wasn’t in vain
But meant to attain
The power deep within you
Getting all upset by looking into your past
Start to change your ways, the sins they will never last
One step at a time, you’ll come around pretty fast
Strap your seatbelt on, we’re taking off with a blast
‘Cause you’re knocked down, you’re chewed up
A big frown, you messed up
A thump sound, you’ve been struck
You hit ground, you got stuck
You tapped out, you’re fed up
You had doubts, you let up
The next round you won’t drown
You fall down, you get up

Oh, I been fighting these wars on my own, oh
I been falling for way too long
I need a rebbe
I need a rebbe
Show me the way back home
I need a rebbe
Someone to tell me
That I’m not alone
That I’m not alone

(I been falling for way too long)

At long last, a lending ear willing to listen
Had so much to share but people couldn’t wait until I finished
I had had enough
Almost felt like all that I been hearing was “wrap it up”
But I got so many blanks to fill in (tefillin)

It ain’t so easy to believe a stranger cares about you
Takes a lot of faith to trust someone to open up to
We could sit here for hours ’cause I love helpin’ you
Just like my rebbe helped me out with all the things I’d been through

I want you to show me the ropes, so I don’t have to climb this mountain alone
Your chizuk keeps me afloat while I let your words sink in through my bones
I did not need a pat on the back telling me “way to go”
I just needed a rebbe like you to help me find which way to go

Maybe I could see your greatness ’cause I see you from a different view
The only job I try to do is unleash the force inside of you
So when life is gettin’ tough and things are gettin’ heavy
You could come back any time because I’d love to be your Rebbe

Oh, I been fighting
Oh, I was fighting
Oh, I been fighting
But I’m not alone
But I’m not alone

🎶

‘Cause I got a rebbe
I got a rebbe
Someone who knows me
Someone to tell me
That I got a rebbe
I got a rebbe
And I’m not alone
No, I’m not alone
