A collection of stories by the late, world-renowned rabbi and folk singer Shlomo Carlebach.
The stories assembled in this anthology are among the favorite hasidic tales told by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach since his career as a teacher, musician, composer, and storyteller began in the mid-1950s. Internationally famed as a performer and the father of modern hasidic music, Rabbi Carlebach first emerged as a master in his own right when he established the House of Love and Prayer in San Francisco in 1967. Among the first to draw thousands of young people back to Judaism, he initiated a movement that now extends worldwide. While Rabbi Carlebach is best known for his teachings and his creative talents as a musician/composer, his gift as a storyteller has received acclaim in New Age retreats, storytelling seminars, and concerts throughout the world where Jew and non-Jew alike have been drawn to these stories and to their wisdom.--Susan Yael Mesinai
