Standing Silent

Underwritten by Judith Sklar and Stan Voyles



Standing Silent
Synopsis

Phil Jacobs, the editor of a Jewish newspaper in Baltimore and himself the victim of sexual abuse as a child, conducts an indomitable campaign to expose the sexual abuse of children within the Orthodox community, revealing issues that many of its members prefer not to make public or even acknowledge. Especially troubling is the fact that one of those whom he seeks to bring to justice is a respected and revered rabbi.
