In Kan’s ‘In the Name of the Father,’ Bat Dor Ojalvo uses the platform of television to unmask the underage marriage, rape, excommunication and violence in a seemingly placid Hasidic community in northern Israel, which for decades was run from Brooklyn by Rabbi Eliezer Shlomo Schick.He was a spiritual father to thousands of Hasidim. He brought tens of thousands of people closer to Judaism, and helped quite a few desperate, lost souls get back on their feet. The followers of Rabbi Eliezer Shlomo Schick, also known as the Mohorosh, considered him a righteous man and a great Torah scholar, and in the 1980s, when they heard that he had decided to establish a closed community in a small town in northern Israel, they followed him blindly.
