There are physical biographies and there are spiritual biographies. This book is both. In it we can see how we were part of Reb Shlomo’s broad, expansive life, and how he was a significant part of our personal spiritual journeys. Together, we shared a renewing of Jewish life, filled with learning and music, love and joy. Thanks to Rabbi Dr. Natan Ophir for his unique effort to research, document and sequence Reb Shlomo’s life path, and in doing so, illustrate his inspirational impact on many holy times and holy places. We are honored to be part of the story.
