Buchbeschreibung Published by Author ND , Efrat, 1996. SIGNED BY SHLOMO CARLEBACH (1925-1994), a Jewish rabbi, religious teacher, composer, and singer who was known as "The Singing Rabbi" during his lifetime. In a career that spanned 40 years, Carlebach composed thousands of melodies and recorded more than 25 albums that continue to have widespread popularity and appeal. Carlebach was also considered a pioneer of the Baal teshuva movement ("returnees to Judaism"), encouraging disenchanted Jewish youth to re-embrace their heritage, using his special style of enlightened teaching, and his melodies, songs, and highly inspiring story telling, and his influence continues to this day in "Carlebach minyanim" and Jewish religious gatherings in many cities around the globe. At various times he lived in Manhattan, San Francisco, Toronto and a Moshav he founded, Mevo Modi'im, Israel. This biography contains many pictures of Carlebach, extracts from letters in his handwriting, and newspaper articles about him. 245x175mm. 224 pages.
