How did a controversial rabbi who passed away more than 200 years ago become the most influential figure on the lives of hundreds of thousands of Jews? How did a small cult of persecuted devotees who were nicknamed “The Dead Hasidim” become the biggest spiritual movement in Judaism today? “Rabenu (Our Rabbi)” delves into the most fascinating phenomenon in the Jewish world in the past decades: From the jumpers in the streets, the celebrities, Mizrahi & Ashkenazi Jews, intellectuals and hipsters, ultra-Orthodox Jews, to the dangerous criminals, all of these are brought together by one Jewish man simply referred to as Rabenu – that man is Rebbe Nachman of Breslow. In a special and surprising contemporary cinematic language, “Rabenu” brings to the screen the magic of one of Judaism’s most mysterious Hassidic rabbis.
