The Rabbi Goes West is a documentary that tells the story of Chabad Rabbi Chaim Bruk, who moved from Brooklyn to Bozeman, Montana with his wife, Chavie Bruk, to bring traditional Judaism to the American West. Part of his mission is to place a mezuzah, an encased prayer offering, on the doorpost of every Montana Jew. As he travels across this “big sky” landscape, Chaim confronts a terrifying neo-Nazi threat. He also faces objections from some skeptical Jews and the state’s rabbis, both Reform and Conservative.
