THAT RABBI Shlomo Carlebach was a complex character no one can deny. Rabbi, mystic, singer, composer, storyteller, an ecstatic teacher who would often ask after he taught “What did I say?” as though he had entered a world even he did not fully grasp.

Perhaps it is no wonder given this that there is a dimension (or a number of dimensions) of his persona that people have not seen, or seen poorly, or through a glass darkly.
