Soul Doctor: Journey of a Rockstar Rabbi tells the true story of the beloved yet controversial father of popular Jewish music, SHLOMO CARLEBACH and explores his unlikely friendship with NINA SIMONE. A modern day troubadour, he ignited the spirit of millions around the world with his soul-stirring melodies, transformative storytelling, and boundless love.
Soul Doctor The Musical takes us on an exhilarating musical odyssey through the challenges and triumphs of this cultural phenomenon: his childhood escape from Nazi Germany, becoming a rabbinical prodigy in America; his unlikely friendship with Nina Simone, discovering Gospel and Soul music; his meteoric rise as a "Rock Star-Rabbi" in the 1960's; his struggle to reconcile his deep traditional roots with his desire to reach people of all backgrounds in the "free-love generation"; and his personal conflicts trying to keep his family together while traversing the globe as a "Soul Doctor", bringing joy and song to the lonely, the searching and the broken hearted.
