Israeli Film Night: Jews & Baseball
Join us for Israeli Film Night the first Wednesday of each month. Admission is free, and it's an entertaining way to learn about the diversity of modern Israeli culture and ideas.
This month's film: Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story
This award-winning documentary explores the connection between Jewish Americans and baseball, our nation's most iconic institution. More than a film about sports, it is a story of immigration, assimilation, bigotry, heroism, the passing on of traditions, and the shattering of stereotypes. There have been standout Jewish baseball players in every decade from the 1860s to the present. Jews and Baseball is the first major documentary to tell their stories. Interviews include fans, writers, executives, and especially players - including Al Rosen, Kevin Youkilis, Shawn Green, Norm Sherry, Ron Blomberg, Bob Feller, Yogi Berra, and a rare interview with the legendary Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax.
