Through the history and metaphor of sports Jeffrey S. Gurock, author of "Judaism's Encounter with American Sports," explores issues of Jewish acceptance, integration and identity in America during the 20th and early 21st century. He will examine how a foreign cultural force, called "athleticism," entered into, competed with, and transformed Jewish life in the United States. There will be a catered meal following the lecture.
