"With his unique combination of talents, genius, charisma, warmth, idealism, sensitivity, and unconditional love, Shlomo Carlebach (1925-1994) was a man made for his mission. Few in recent Jewish history have sacrificed and achieved so much for the Jewish people. He died almost penniless, a Holy Beggar, who gave all the money he made to tzedakkah. ...The profusion of gifts he bequeathed us, both in terms of the thousands of heart-rending melodies he composed and the inspiring teachings he imparted, help to console us in our wrenching loss. The tens of thousands of Baalei Teshuvah he helped also remain as a testament to his enduring legacy." -- from the introduction to Holy Brother.
