Expected to Attend: Scott Rosenfelt

As the editor of the Baltimore Jewish Times, Phil Jacobs grapples with a story that threatens to polarize his readers when he uncovers testimony about sexual abuse by rabbis and other authority figures in the Orthodox Jewish community. Filmmaker Scott Rosenfelt follows Jacobs as he confronts the accused and faces backlash (even death threats) from those who want the scandal concealed.
