The new musical SOUL DOCTOR tells the fascinating story of the beloved yet controversial father of popular Jewish music, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. After his childhood escape from Nazi Germany, the young Rabbi formed an unlikely friendship with legendary jazz singer Nina Simone who introduced him to soul and gospel music. With his meteoric rise as a "Rock Star Rabbi,” he struggled to harmonize his traditional beliefs with the "free love" generation of the 1960s.
