    American Jews & America’s Game

    Presented by at Massachusetts Historical Society

    April 1, 2014


    American Jews & America’s Game

    Author Larry Ruttman will discuss the four main subjects of his book: baseball; American Jewish life in the United States over the last century; American history; and the revealing personal lives of people involved with the game. Compiled using oral histories gathered from nearly 50 Jewish baseball luminaries (who served the game both on and off the field), Ruttman's book offers an anecdotal study of American Jews and the fellow citizens with whom they interacted during momentous times for America, set against the backdrop of a quintessentially American game that fascinates us all.

    Larry Ruttman, Fellow of the Massachusetts Historical Society, is the author of Voices of Brookline, a national finalist for the Award of Merit of the American Association of State and Local History. He has practiced law in Boston for more than fifty years and produces and hosts a television interview show in his hometown of Brookline, Massachusetts.
