DOCUMENTARY

Directors: Amy Geller and Gerald Peary
2019 • 73 minutes • English

Chaim Bruk, a Chabad rabbi, moves to the unlikely area of Bozeman, Montana, to bring his brand of Judaism to the American West. Part of his mission is to place a mezuzah on the doorpost of every Jewish home in the state — fewer than 2,000 families. In his travels, Chaim confronts a neo-Nazi threat and resistance to his proselytizing from some skeptical Jews and the state’s Reform and Conservative rabbis. They acknowledge he is beloved by his congregants, but fear his larger goal: to put up Chabad centers everywhere in Montana.

This film is brought to you by Stuart Kerievsky & Susan and Richard Kogan
