Slugger in the Sukkah: The Designated Hebrew Dishes about his Years Playing Baseball and His Life as a Jew
Sunday, September 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
We’re not talking about Sukkot— no, the baseball playoffs!
Watch Ron Blomberg, the first designated hitter in major league history, preview the postseason and talk about his career as a slugger and his life as a Jew. Following the custom of Ushpizin – inviting heroes, dead and alive, to “join us” in the sukkah – we are inviting Ron as our Ushpizin guest.
Ron Blomberg, the first-ever designated hitter in baseball history, answers questions about his historic career as a ballplayer and his journey since as a Jew, including coaching in the Israel Baseball League.
There is no fee, but please RSVP for planning purposes. This event is held virtually on Zoom. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event. For more information, contact Program Director Ilene Tatro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
