Join us a special event for all ages: A Family Fun Night of Baseball, in celebration of Chasing Dreams: Baseball and Becoming American, a pop-up exhibition from Philadelphia’s National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH) that will be on display here on 15 West 16th Street from April 14 through July 31, 2016. 

The exhibit weaves together America’s favorite pastime and national identity with the story of American Jewish immigration and integration. Both educational and entertaining, the event will feature a Family Guide developed by NMAJH exclusively for the exhibit and have a fun baseball-park theme (hot dogs, popcorn, peanuts, etc.). It will also include distinguished speakers on baseball who will discuss the close ties between Jews and the sport, AJHS archivists who will explain the significance of the baseball items in the AJHS collection, and some exciting activities for kids of all ages! 

This special program will feature a Family Guide developed by NMAJH exclusively for the exhibit, and a fun baseball-park theme, with exciting games and activities for kids of all ages, courtesy of the Brooklyn Cyclones and the Staten Island Yankees and a variety of baseball related raffle items from New York area teams!

We are delighted that Art Shamsky from the 1969 Miracle Mets, Brooklyn Cyclones Vice President Steve Cohen, and Staten Island Yankees team owner Glenn Reicin will be in attendance that night and expect more special guests to confirm shortly. Please check back regularly at www.ajhs.org/programs for updates.
