M (Directed by M (Directed by Yolande Zauberman)

In Bnei Brak, Israel, the world’s largest Jewish orthodox community,  the most insidious secret of rabbis molesting  young yeshiva school-attending boys. It is a cycle that one of victim wants to bring out into the open and end it. Menachem talks openly to other men about it and discovers he’s not alone.  How some families react when they find out is appalling. He also has candid conversations with men about sexual habits within the community. He seeks reconciliation with his abuser, but that rabbi literally hides behind curtains.  This film proves sexual predators are rampant in this community, and that it takes a singing hero like Menachem to reveal the ugly truth. The film went on too long and scenes were not flowing into one another.
