Sinai Film Series - Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story

Sunday, January 7, 2024 26 Tevet 5784

7:00 PM - 9:30 PMSmall Social Hall

 

Don't miss the first screening of this year's Sinai Film Series as we show the fascinating film Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story

I.J. Rosenberg, a member of Sinai and an expert on all things sports-related, will be with us to present the film. He spent 13 years at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, six of them (1991-96) covering the Atlanta Braves — including the world title club in 1996.

I.J. is the President of Score Atlanta which is a full-service sports marketing company, working in the TV, digital, print and content space as well as company representation and activation. Score's clients include the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Comcast Sports Southeast, National Guard, Taco Mac, Georgia High School Association and PlayOn Sports among many others.

JEWS AND BASEBALL traces the Jewish involvement in the history of the sport from the game's earliest days, through the tumultuous war years to today's All-Star games. By analyzing various stages in this history, including how the legendary Sandy Koufax pioneered rights for players and Hank Greenberg's support of Jackie Robinson, the film demonstrates how Jews shaped baseball, and baseball shaped them.

Narrated by two-time Academy Award® winner Dustin Hoffman, this lively and thorough account of Jewish America's love affair with baseball sheds new light on America's national pastime 

Includes interviews with former player Al Rosen, sports historian Maury Allen, celebrity enthusiasts Larry King and Ron Howard, and all-stars Shawn Green and Kevin Youkilis, as well as a rare interview with baseball legend Sandy Koufax.

Popcorn and drinks will be served. We'll join together for a brief conversation after the screening.
