A Movement on Trial DVD

The theft of Lubavitch’s treasured manuscripts amd the Rebbe’s response to the challenge.

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 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.
