Soul Doctor is the bio-musical about 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. Fusing his roots with his newfound inspiration, Shlomo created a revolutionary musical sound, writing songs that became instant standards. As a "Rock Star Rabbi" of the 1960s, he struggled to harmonize his traditional beliefs with the "free love" generation. He ignited the spirit of millions around the world with his soul-stirring melodies, transformative storytelling and boundless love. Today, his uplifting music and message help to define America’s most defiant era.
