    A mamash gevalt

    These stories about Shlomo Carlebach teach us why so many people were drawn close to Judaism by him. They are filled with his remarkable love for people ,and devotion to Yiddishkeit. This book is very moving, and it tells of a truly holy holy soul who gave so much to so many. May this review be a word of memory for Reb Shlomo's great pupil, friend and joker the holy Dovid Herzberg Z'ts'l, my own best friend, and the best friend of so many who is now up there with Shlomo making the heavenly souls sing with joy.
