"Billionaire David Katz (Birney), once convicted of felonies for his financial misdeeds, donates twenty million dollars to his temple--provided they name their school after him," according to press notes. "Young, newly installed rabbi Mark Pickerman (McClure) strenuously objects and offers the congregation an alternative option. A struggle for the hearts and minds of the congregation--as well as those of Katz, Rabbi Pickman, and Katz’s beautiful daughter Elissa (Bledel)--ensues. It’s going to be an interesting High Holy Days."
