Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach (January 14, 1925–October 20, 1994) known as Reb Shlomo to his followers, was a singer, composer, and spiritual leader known as "The Singing Rabbi.”. Although his roots lay in traditional Orthodox yeshivot, he branched out to create his own style combining Hasidic Judaism, warmth and personal interaction, public concerts, and song-filled synagogue services. At various times he lived in Manhattan, San Francisco, Toronto and a Moshav he founded, Mevo Modi'im, in Israel. Carlebach was the subject of Soul Doctor, a Broadway musical that debuted in 2013. He is considered by many to be the foremost Jewish religious songwriter of the 20th century. In a career that spanned 40 years, he composed thousands of melodies and recorded more than 25 albums that continue to have widespread popularity and appeal. His influence also continues to this day in “Carlebach minyanim" and Jewish religious gatherings around the globe. He 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 teaching, , songs, and inspired storytelling.
