Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel

Poster for Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel Israel’s baseball team has advanced to the World Baseball Classic for the first time in history. Thanks to the WBC’s rules on eligibility, the team consists of a number of Jewish-American Major League Baseball players. Most of them haven’t had much exposure to Judaism, let alone been to Israel. HEADING HOME, a documentary by Ironbound Films, follows these players on their first trip to Israel and hopefully Israel’s first baseball championship.

    Jewish Film Festival’s CineMondays presents ‘Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel’

    Americans usually consider baseball to be a quintessentially American pastime. But the documentary Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel (directed by Seth Kramer, Jeremy Newberger, and Daniel A. Miller, and written by Miller), looks at national pride among other “boys of summer.”​
