Summary *Adult Themes, Coarse Language, Sexual References,This program contains content that may concern some viewers* Code Of Silence, a one-hour Compass special, follows the parallel journeys of a fervently Orthodox father and his now-secular son, after the son breaks the code of silence in Melbourne's Orthodox community and goes public with his story of being sexually abused as a student. Manny Waks, who claims he was abused by two employees at his Chabad-run centre in the 1980s, demands the perpetrators be brought to justice, as well as the rabbis who allowed it to happen and those he claims covered it up. His father Zephaniah claims he has been virtually excommunicated for breaking an ancient Jewish law forbidding Jews from informing secular authorities about other Jews. He demands his name be publicly cleared or he may be forced to leave the country. We see how this father and son have split this tightly-knit powerful Jewish sect as we open the door into their insular world of study and duty, charity and faith, power and piety. Will Manny get justice in court? Will the rabbis be held to account? And what price will the father and son pay for blowing the whistle?
