    more analytical than biographical but well crafted and a great complement to Ophir's book

    The author attempts to be objective and constructive and seems to make this attempt in good faith; however, I think the title of the book is presumptuous and causes the reader to be a bit disappointed. The title implies there will be major new revelations; it is true there are some new revelations, but in most cases Rabbi Chaim Dalfin simply reaffirms the findings of Rabbi Dr. Natan Ophir in the latter's definitive encyclopedic biography. Dalfin was also a bit careless, it would seem, as when he contradicted himself as to the age of Carlebach when he got married, i.e., 47 years of age on pages 16, 164, and 174, but 42 years of age on page 177. I think the claim that Reb Shlomo allegedly believed that the Lubavitcher Rebbe was the Moshiach (p. 54) is a bit misleading, because in context even Dalfin indicates that Reb Shlomo didn't consider the Lubavitcher Rebbe to be THE moshiach literally. The attempt to write this book to be constructive is admirable. Dalfin's "10-point Shlomo Campaign," outlined on page 256, might seem to represent the agenda and follow the views of Dalfin more closely than of Carlebach.

    Rabbi Chaim Dalfin has undertaken the challenging task of unraveling the secrets of one of the most intriguing Rabbinical personalities of the 20th century, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Rabbi Dalfin is an assiduous researcher, energetically searching for hints and diligently deciphering riddles to try and illuminate the complex personality of Reb Shlomo. He has tracked down dozens of people who knew Reb Shlomo, and his persistent questioning has facilitated interviews of a revelatory nature. He grapples with thought-provoking issues such as Reb Shlomo’s relationship with his parents, his becoming a Chabadnik, and his transferring from Lakewood to Hasidism. He seeks to unravel the secrets of the inner-life of Reb Shlomo and opens a Pandora’s Box of new questions and conclusions including Shlomo’s remarkable success as a pioneer of Jewish outreach.

    It's quite shocking that an author titling himself with the honorific of 'rabbi' makes no bones about two serious violations of the Torah.
