Attend a FREE lecture Sunday about the connection of American Jews to America’s game, baseball. The program features Pulitzer Prize winning sports reporter Ira Berkow, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, Larry Ruttman, author of the book “American Jews and America’s Game”, and Donald Fehr, a former executive director of the Major League Players Association.
They’ll be comparing the history of the game and how it involves the American Jewish experience, including players, owners managers and fans, and MLB commissioner Bud Selig. For sure, the discussion will include Hall of Fame Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax, who famously refused to play in the first 1965 World Series game because it fell on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism.
Play ball – or at least hear about it – at the Skirball Center at Temple Emanuel, featuring, at 10 :30 a.m., complete with a FREE box of Cracker Jack.
Although the event is FREE, you are asked to RSVP to ensure space, and arrive early enough to get just the seat you want.
