(NEW YORK, NY) On June 8th at High Noon, media outlets and a host of esteemed guests came together to celebrate the Broadway musical film, Soul Doctor, about the ‘rock star’ Rabbi Shlomo Carlbach, and his relationship with the music and civil rights icon Dr. Nina Simone.

Fathom Events and Lisa Simone (the daughter of the great Dr. Nina Simone & Executive Producer) present the special nationwide screenings of Soul Doctor which will take place in more than 600 select theaters for one night only on June 13.

ABOUT SOUL DOCTOR: Soul Doctor tells the story of the beloved yet controversial father of popular Jewish music, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. A modern-day troubadour, Shlomo ignited the spirit of millions around the world with his soul-stirring melodies, transformative storytelling, and boundless love. After his childhood escape from Nazi Germany, the young Rabbi formed an unlikely friendship with musical icon and pioneer, Nina Simone, who introduced him to Soul and Gospel music, and a Jewish music and cultural revival was born. Fusing his roots with his new inspiration, Shlomo created a revolutionary musical sound, writing songs that continue to be the main body of Jewish musical standards. The “Jewish Gospel/Soul” experience he introduced to the synagogue worship remains the most popular of services across all denominations of Jewish practice.
