Pickleball and a Movie
Screening of “Dinking AcrossFaith” and open play
Join us for a hybrid Pickleball and film experience with Rabbi Golan Ben-Chorin from Israel! We’ll start with a screening of his documentary short, “Dinking Across Faith,” which tells the story of Muslim, Christian, and Jewish Pickleball novices in Haifa who share a love for the game and the desire to create a shared society.
This group of religious and secular women and men from various orientations and worldviews examine the value of shared leisure time on the court together. The establishment of the group earned film director Rabbi Golan Ben-Chorin the honor of being the first rabbi to appear in Sports Illustrated.
After watching the film, Rabbi Golan will lead a discussion and Q&A; then we’ll move onto the courts to play some casual Pickleball (participants should bring their own paddles).
