THE RABBI GOES WEST
NYC PREMIERE A Hasidic rabbi relocates from Brooklyn, New York to Bozeman, Montana with the hopes of spreading Chabad—his brand of orthodox practice—throughout “Big Sky Country.” As his prominence grows in the state, he faces neo-Nazi threats and resistance from members of the established Jewish community in Montana. The delicate balance between traditional values and the libertarian ethos of the American West is explored through one man’s relationship with his faith.
