A book that I wouldn't have been aware of had it not have been bought to my attention by Mrs Levene of Levene's Judaica 5th Ave NY. The book comprises short inspiring and true stories of the late Rebbe Shlomo Carlbach. It is a heart warming read of kind acts, faith and trust about a generous and very special man.
The book is a collection of memories of people who had know Rabbi Shlomo Carlbach and upon whom the rabbi had a lasting effect. The tales are profoundly moving. If only half of them are accurate, he truly was a holy man. Read it a secong time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
