Film

Shlomo Carlebach's career as the leading singer and songwriter of Orthodox Judaism spanned 40 years. He recorded more than 25 albums and performed in countless concerts, and his musical legacy continues even to this day. Carlebach was also an ordained rabbi with roots both in Misnaged (Lithuanian) Judaism at the Lakewood Yeshiva, as well as in Hasidic Judaism at the Lubavitcher Yeshiva in Brooklyn. He combined this eclectic grounding in Orthodox Judaism to help disenchanted Jewish youth to re-embrace their Jewish heritage. This outreach, eventually known as the Baal Teshuva Movement, has had a wide and salutary effect on Jewish life today. In You Never Know, Shlomo Carlebach's life and religious influence are retold by his friends and followers.
