A Movement On Trial

Watch an excerpt of JEM’s “A Movement on Trial.” This documentary pulls back the curtain on the fascinating saga of the violation of Lubavitch’s sacred manuscripts and books – and their ultimate triumph

“For all generations…this should be established as an auspicious day”  – The Lubavitcher Rebbe, 5 Teves 5748

From the Rebbe’s first public references to the theft of Lubavitch’s treasured manuscripts in the summer of 1985, it was clear that this was not merely a legal challenge, but also as a spiritual struggle over the soul of the movement, and over the very definition of what a Rebbe is.

A Movement on Trial begins to pull back the cover on a painful yet fascinating saga. The Lubavitcher Rebbe’s ultimate victory – or in the Rebbe’s words, “the victory of the books” – and the celebration that followed have been forever enshrined in the narrative of the Lubavitch movement in modern times.

Experience events as they unfold, together with Chasidim at 770 – from the Rebbe’s first talk on the subject through the court battle, the victory, the books’ return, and the Rebbe’s post-victory addresses on the subject.

The complete documentary is available to purchase at the, and at Judaica stores.
