Scholars and lay persons interested in Jewish culture will welcome Dr. Natan Ophir’s biography of Shlomo Carlebach. There is growing awareness in the last years in the centrality of Carlebach’s work to the rise of neo-Hasidism and the movement of return to tradition. Ophir’s is to date the most detailed biography of “the Singing Rabbi,” and the author should be commended for his extensive research, which both illuminates many unfamiliar corners in the life and career of the neo-Hasidic rabbi and also provides a comprehensive picture of a unique religious leader.
