    About the film: 

    "There's an evangelical strand of Hasidic Judaismâ€"Chabad Lubavitchâ€"spreading across the world. The Rabbi Goes West focuses on one Chabad rabbi, 34-year-old Chaim Bruk, who moved from Brooklyn to unlikely Bozeman, Montana, to bring his brand of Judaism to the American West. Part of his Chabad mission is to place a mezuzah, an encased prayer offering, on the doorpost of every Montana Jew. That's less than 2,000 families spread across a state fourteen times larger than Israel.
    As he travels across this 'big sky' landscape, Chaim confronts a terrifying neo-Nazi threat. He also faces objections to his proselytizing from some skeptical Jews and the state's rabbis, both Reform and Conservative. While they acknowledge that he is beloved by his congregants, they fear his larger goal to put up Chabad centers everywhere in Montana. Will Chaim succeed in his Chabad expansion, and at what cost?"
  • During this Corona Virus Pandemic we are trying to offer as many virtual and online programs as possible either for free or at greatly reduced rates. The suggested donation for this event is $10. Any sponsorship amount is greatly appreciated. Nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds.
