What—or rather, who—do you get when you mix a Columbia University PhD graduate, with a Yeshiva University professor, an expert on sports history, an experienced marathon runner, and a basketball coach? If you’re lucky, and we are, the answer is Jeffrey Gurock.
Dr. Gurock, Libby M. Klaperman Chair of Jewish History at Yeshiva University, is the keynote speaker for this year’s Twenty-Third Annual Klutznick -Harris Symposium, Jews in the Gym: Judaism, Sports, and Athletics. Gurock’s presentation, titled “American Jewry’s Contemporary Scoreboard: Home and Away,” will take place at the Omaha Jewish Community Center on Sunday, Oct. 24, at 7:30 pm.
