What Is the Story of Soul Doctor?
Soul Doctor tells the powerful story of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, who transformed the face of Judaism with his music and progressive approach to spreading the word. The story follows Carlebach from his childhood in Nazi-occupied Vienna to his education in a traditional Orthodox yeshiva to finding his own voice and founding a youth-oriented temple in San Francisco, the House of Love and Prayer. Along the way, Carlebach finds inspiration from nightclub singer Nina Simone and becomes a top-selling recording artist.
