Rabbi Naphtali Carlebach was a leading Rabbi in Berlin, and then the Chief Rabbi of Baden, near Vienna. One of 12 children, Rabbi Naphtali was born from a union of two Rabbinic families. Among his siblings were Joseph, Emanuel David, and Ephraim Carlebach, all prominent Rabbis in pre-war Germany.
When war broke out in Europe, Rabbi Naphtali took his family and immigrated to the US, where he assumed the spiritual leadership of Congregation Kehilath Jacob on W 79th Street in the mid-1940’s. Upon his death in 1967, his son Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach took over this role, joined in the early-1980’s by his twin brother, Rabbi Eli Chaim Carlebach.
The Carlebach Shul would like to remember the contributions that Rabbi Naphtali Carlebach made, in NY as well as in Germany and Austria, and mark his 50th Yahrzeit with a rededication to carrying on his commitment to help those most in need, teach Torah, and treat everyone with dignity.
Rabbi Shlomie Perr is a “Holy Yiddele” – a unique blend of “Old School” Yeshivish, Chassidish, & Carlebachian – who travels through life singing and playing Shlomo’s niggunim. Rabbi Perr founded several Community Kollelim and Outreach Centers and has been teaching and reaching out to Yidden around the globe. He is currently the Rabbi at the Berditchiver Kloiz, a Shul in Lakewood, NJ where the Baal Shev Tov and the Vilna Gaon would be comfortable happily davening together. (Come check it out!)
