This film, directed by Ben Lewin, is an American spy thriller  based on the real-life post-baseball career of Moe Berg. Berg was raised in Newark, New Jersey, and graduated from Princeton - quite an accomplishment for a young Jewish man in the anti-Semitic Ivy League university system - and went on to chalk up a 15-year career in major league baseball. During World War II, he worked for the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the CIA, in the effort to beat Germany in the race to build the first atomic bomb. We are pleased to have Barry Gross -- attorney, lifelong baseball fanatic, and childhood friend of Mike Solomon -- present this movie.

This film, based on Naomi Alderman’s book, takes place in a North London ultra-Orthodox community. Ronit left the Orthodox community to be a professional photographer in New York City. She never communicated with her father or others until she is notified of her father’s (the Rabbi’s) death. Her return for the funeral leads to an exploration of a transgression years before. The film provides an intimate examination of personal faith, free will, forbidden love, and familial relationships We’re happy to have Stan Selinger, a clinical psychologist and family therapist, present this thought-provoking movie.
