The moving story of Joseph B. Soloveitchik, the famous rabbinic scholar, who battled ignorance, fundamentalism, and corruption, in order to prove that a genuine life of faith, although lonely, can be lived in consonance with the modern world. The film is about his inspiring life, his tremendous impact, and the complicated legacy he left behind. Lonely Man of Faith is narrated by Tovah Feldshuh, with readings by Theodore Bikel.

There were parts of this documentary I'm still thinking about today. First, I did not know that Rabbi Soloveitchik was the founder/leader of Modern Orthodoxy. This I found very interesting. Also, the anti-semitism in Boston, when he arrived in America was a little bit surprising. I am well aware of anti-semetic behavior since the very beginnings; but still this fact stayed with me. So much stayed with me from watching this film - I was riveted the whole time I was watching the documentary. I look forward to viewing it again at a later date.
I give a kudos/thumbs up to director Ethan Isenberg, narrator Tovah Feldshuh, and the readings by Theodore Bikel.
Buy this film - it should be part your Jewish library.
