State of Play: Jews, Jocks, and the "American Dream"

Sunday, November 19
1:00 pm ET (No Eagles game!)
The Weitzman Museum, in-person only
Free and open to the public

For more than a century, American sport has served as a yardstick with which American Jews and other groups measure how much they had “made it” in the United States. Sports is also the arena in which Americans talk about social change. This panel of historians and sport insiders will discuss the power of sport and much more. Sponsored by the Shusterman Foundation.
