Jews and Baseball:
An American Love Story
Join us for the documentary that celebrates the contributions of Jewish major leaguers and the special meaning that baseball has had in the lives of American Jews.
Narrated by Academy Award-winner Dustin Hoffman, the movie discusses the key Jewish ballplayers in each decade since baseball started in the 1860s, and how that helped Jews assimilate and counteract the stereotype of Jews as cerebral but non-athletic. The film is in part about Jewish immigration and assimilation into American society, bigotry against Jews, the passing on of Jewish traditions even during assimilation, heroism and the breaking of Jewish stereotypes.
