About the Event

The history of baseball is filled with interesting stories of Jewish players. In this program we’ll take a closer look at many of the famous—and perhaps slightly less famous—players over the past 160 years, as well putting them in a historical context. The story continues today, as we take a look at the 16 Jewish players on an active Major League roster. From Moe Berg to Hank Greenberg to Sandy Koufax, baseball gives us unique insights into a changing America.

In partnership with Congregation Beth Emek
