“Heading Home – Tale of Team Israel”

September 4 , 7:00 pm

The critically acclaimed documentary makes its theatrical debut with a one-night-only screening followed by a Q&A with its director. The film is the David-and-Goliath story of Israel’s national baseball team as it competes for the first time in the World Baseball Classic after years of crushing defeats. With a roster of many Jewish-American major leaguers, most with a tenuous relationship to Judaism, the team’s odyssey from the Holy Land to South Korea establishes them as modern-day Maccabees who rise to represent the country on the world stage.
