The BIG Saturday Night Celebration of Jewish Film and Champagne Reception

A new chapter in the enduring love story of Jews and baseball, Heading Home is the stirring underdog chronicle of the unexpected triumph of Israel’s national baseball team at the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Absolutely no one was betting on Team Israel, but that was before they beat Cuba, South Korea, Taiwan and the Netherlands. Team Israel’s scrappy line-up included several Jewish MLB players—including former Red Sox catcher Ryan Lavarnway, former New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis, and former pitcher for the Houston Astros Josh Zeid—who found themselves exploring their Jewish identity for the first time while representing Israel on the world stage. A home run for audiences of all ages.

Featuring special guests Ty Kelly, Team Israel and New York Mets player and Seth Kramer, director and in partnership with BBYO & Hillel.

Tickets: $35 includes BIG Saturday Night Celebration of Jewish Film and champagne reception | Under 21: $18
