Rabbi Hartwig Naftali Carlebach (1889–1967), known as Rabbi Naphtali Carlebach was a leading Rabbi in Berlin, Germany; Baden, Austria; and Manhattan, New York.


He was born in 1889, the eleventh of 12 children of Esther Adler (1853–1920), the daughter of the former rabbi of Lübeck, Rabbi Alexander Sussmann Adler (1816–1869), and Lübeck's then Rabbi Salomon (Shlomo) Carlebach (1845–1919).[1] Four of his brothers were rabbis as well. They are Emanuel Carlebach (1874–1927), Joseph Carlebach (1883–1942), David Carlebach (1885–1913) and Ephraim Carlebach (1879–1936).[2]

The Carlebach family is a notable Jewish family originally from Germany that now lives all over the world.

He was the rabbi of the Passauerstrasse Synagogue of Berlin from 1917 to 1931. From 1931 to 1938 Naphtali Carlebach was Chief Rabbi of Baden near Vienna, Austria.[3]

In 1950 Rabbi Naphtali assumed the spiritual leadership of Congregation Kehilath Jacob, "The Carlebach Shul," located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. After his death in 1967, his sons Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach and Rabbi Eli Chaim Carlebach took over his position.[4]
