The Tape Room goes back to 1986. The Rabbinical Student: Orthodox Judaism is unique. On one side it is the practice of living to strict codes that have remained unchanged for centuries. One the other, it is mingling and living in secular society. To keep up the traditions, many communities set up schools known as yeshivas. It is at one of these schools on Long Island back in 1986 where a young student was found beaten to death. His name was Chaim Weiss. Police say he died from a blow to his head so powerful, it severed his spine. We speak with the Chaim's father. Three decades later this brutal crime still haunts this family.
