The TST Book & Film Group Presents...

Film screening and a private Q & A with filmmakers

Brought to you by the TST Adult Education Committee

Watch the film on  your own device beginning the evening of January 9,
then join us for the discussion on January 12 (via Zoom)


The amazing documentary THE RABBI GOES WEST (a 2019 audience favorite at the Boston Jewish Film Festival!) tells the story of Chabad Rabbi Chaim Bruk, who moved from Brooklyn to Bozeman, Montana, with his wife, Chavie Bruk, to bring Chasidic Judaism to the American west. Part of his mission is to place a mezzuzah on the doorpost of the home of every Montana Jew. (That’s fewer 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 from some skeptical Jews and from Montana rabbis, both Reform and Conservative.
