The Mens Club and B'nai Brith Present: Movie Night on Thursday April 15th

Kobe, Lebron, and … Ossie Schectman? Yes – in the early days of professional basketball – the first game of the New York Knickerbockers featured several Jewish players – and it was Ossie Schectman who scored the Knicks first basket!

In "The First Basket," a major motion picture release in 2008, writer/producer/director David Vyorst and narrator Peter Riegert explore the little-known, yet very important, Jewish history of the game. Chock full of vivid anecdotes and distinctive characters, the film brings back famous as well as unsung basketball legends such as Red Auerbach, Red Holzman, and many more.

These legendary players of professional basketball became role models and heroes to generations of fans and changed the face and perception, to this very day, of Jews in all athletics.
