As Hitler invaded Europe, a young Jewish baseball player, Hank Greenberg, challenged Babe Ruth’s home run record and became an American hero.
“The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg” is a sometimes humorous and often nostalgic documentary about how this Hall of Fame Detroit Tiger (and later Pittsburgh Pirate) became a beacon of hope to American Jews, who faced bigotry during The Depression and World War II, and how he became an American hero.
Winner of The Peabody Award, Critics Choice Award, The National Society of Film Critics Award.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. FREE and open to the public. All registrants receive FREE popcorn and soda.
Presented by Congregation Ahavath Achim (The Carnegie Shul) in cooperation with South Hills Jewish Pittsburgh.
