Yes, there are Jews in Montana! In “The Rabbi Goes West,” the feature-length documentary directed by Gerald Peary and Amy Geller, a charismatic Hasidic rabbi from Brooklyn moves to Montana to bring his Chabad brand of missionary Judaism to the American west. There he runs into resistance from other rabbis, Reform and Conservative, and also neo-Nazis threatening the Montana Jewish community. If you liked the Israeli TV series “Shtisel” or Netflix’s “Unorthodox,” this one’s for you!

Filmmakers Amy Geller and Gerald Peary are sharing all revenues for this event with the Independent Film Festival of Boston, which was forced to postpone its much-anticipated 2020 festival.

“The Rabbi Goes West” will be available to rent on Vimeo for $8.99 through June 4.
