About the Film: 

An ordinary American teenager encounters extra-ordinary challenges when he sets his heart on donating equipment to young Cuban baseball players — an act of thanks to the country that sheltered his grandfather during the Holocaust.  Havana Curveball takes viewers on a deeply felt journey that shows just how complicated it is to “do good” in the world.

Additional Event Info:

We encourage you to bring new or gently used baseball equipment that will then be donated to a local under-served team.

This event is co-sponsored by Congregation Etz Chayim, Jewish LearningWorks, JCC Maccabi Sports Camp, and the Oshman Family JCC.
