JEWISH BASEBALL PLAYERS! WHO KNEW?
ZOOM IN TO HEAR A FASCINATING TALK ABOUT JEWS IN BASEBALL, PAST AND PRESENT –
AND HOW ART BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER
RAFFLE TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW TO WIN A PERSONALIZED PAINTING OF JEWISH PLAYERS WITH YOU IN THE STANDS!
On Sunday, October 3rd at 5:00 PM Central Time, you are in for a Zoom treat! Greg Harris, a Chicago resident and baseball fan, had a dream: to bring together Jews
who have contributed to the National Pastime and put them all in a painting. He contracted with Major League Baseball and artist Ron Lewis to make it happen.
The painting includes 26 Jewish baseball stars, including All Stars, Hall of Famers, MVP’s, Cy Young Award winners and World Series Champions,
plus several other prominent Jewish figures in the stands. The painting was an exciting project, and the stories behind the stories, as Greg recounts,
will rekindle your baseball spirit!
The Zoom program, lasting approximately one hour, is FREE! Click on the link to join the October 3rd program:
As a fundraiser, Temple Beth Torah is raffling off a personalized replica of the painting, with the winner choosing to put one person in the stands painted in by the artist
(multiple people can be added for an additional cost). The painting is framed and shipped to the winner’s home, free of charge.
Tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100.
