Type of Event Arts & Culture
Film Opening
Description A film about the first and only season of the Israel Baseball League will be screened at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center on Sunday, March 11 at 4pm. Boston bagel maker Larry Baras wanted to create a professional baseball league in Israel. His idea was met with incredulity, dismissal and hostility. He attempted it anyway. Holy Land Hardball is the story of his dream to bring America’s favorite pastime to the Middle East. After the movie, author Aaron Pribble will discuss his book, Pitching in the Promised Land – A Story of the First and Only Season in the Israel Baseball League. Pribble’s tome is a coming-of-age story (spiritually and athletically) about one short baseball season intertwined with romance, Middle Eastern politics, and the dreams of America’s pastime far from home. “Thinking Baseball – Movie and Book Talk” is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Boston Jewish Book Fair. Ticket price is $8. Discount for JCC members, students and seniors. Purchase tickets online at or contact, 617-965-5226 or 866-811-4111. The JCC is located at 333 Nahanton Street in Newton.
