Film Screening: Heading Home: A Tale of Team Israel

with opening remarks from our Communications Associate and avid baseball fan, Sarah Meira Rosenberg

Wednesday, October 10, 7:00PM

 

A stirring story of sports, patriotism, and personal growth, Heading Home charts the underdog journey of Israel’s national baseball team as they compete for the first time in the World Baseball Classic. Their lineup included several Jewish American Major League players, most with a tenuous relationship to Judaism, never mind having ever set foot in Israel. Their odyssey takes them from the Holy Land, where they are greeted as heroes, to Seoul, where they must debunk their has-been/wannabe reputations. With their Mensch on the Bench mascot by their side, the team laughs, cries, and does much soul-searching, discovering the pride of representing Israel on the world stage.
