Soul Doctor is an exhilarating musical journey through the triumphs and tribulations of a cultural phenomenon. It tells the fascinating story of the father of popular Jewish music, Shlomo Carlebach, and his unlikely friendship with Nina Simone.

A modern-day troubadour, Shlomo ignited the spirit of millions around the world with his soul-stirring melodies, transformative storytelling and boundless love.  After his escape from Nazi Germany, the young Rabbi befriended the legendary jazz singer Nina Simone who introduced him to soul and gospel music. With the “High Priestess of Soul” as his inspiration, Shlomo created a joyous new sound with melodies that fused his roots with American popular music.

With his meteoric rise as a “Rock Star Rabbi,” he struggled to harmonize his traditional beliefs with the “free love” generation of the 1960s. Today, his uplifting music and message help to define America’s most defiant era.
