Haberman Institute: Sports in the Shtetl

About the Event
We know how much Jews contributed to the cultural heritage of humankind, from Freud in the realm of psychology and Einstein in the natural sciences all the way to Marx in politics, Kafka in literature, and Schonberg in modern music. But Jews and sports? How do these two go together? Think about this: In 1925 a Jewish soccer team Ha-Koakh (the strong) from Vienna beat the best European team, West Ham United, 5-0 on their London home grounds. It was a source of pride for Jews throughout Europe; the story of victory and doesn't end there!
Join historian, author, and musician, Yale Strom, for a unique exploration that will shed light on this often overlooked aspect of pre-War Jewish cultural life in Eastern Europe. Instructor: Yale Strom Location: Zoom classroom. All students will receive the Zoom link prior to the first class.
