The Rabbi Goes West

Runtime: 73 Minutes | Rating: Not Rated
Directors: Amy Geller, Gerald Peary
Distributor: Big Sleep Films, Inc.


A charismatic Hasidic rabbi moves from Brooklyn to Bozeman, Montana, to bring his brand of Judaism to the American West. There, he meets opposition from other rabbis, Reform and Conservative, who feel he is poaching their congregants. Meanwhile, Neo-Nazis threaten the Jews of Montana.

"Peary and Geller observe the rabbi's progress with humor, acuity, and empathy." -Peter Keough, Boston Globe
