- A special, Jewish-themed Golden State Warriors "splash" towel

CBS Does Jewish Heritage Night

Nathaniel&SamTeitelbaumEllaLaelSturm_SFGiantsJewishHeritageNight_August2016Every year, sometime in late July or August, Bay Area Jews from all walks of life descend on AT&T Park for what just might become our fourth Pilgrimage Festival. The annual ingathering of the Jews known as San Francisco Giants Jewish Heritage Night is always a great deal of fun, and last night was no exception.

Over 70 CBS congregants and friends participated in the 2016 Jewish Heritage Night (Tuesday, August 30), and many came well before the first pitch to check out the pregame celebration at the north end of Terry Francois Boulevard, just across McCovey Cove (best known for kayakers retrieving "splash hits," home runs hit over the right field wall into the water). Some stalwart Jewish organizations working in the Bay Area, including PJ Library, the Jewish Community Federation, Reboot, and Keshet, set up information tables at the party, and, as always, our Chabadnik brothers patrolled the crowd looking for Jews – all men, per their take on halacha (Jewish law) – to lay tefillin. The popular Rally Rabbi blew the shofar to announce Rosh Hashanah's approach (it may be a month away, but it's always good for the soul to hear the blast of "Tekiah"!), and a handful of bands performed for all assembled.

Sadly, our Giants fell to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a close game (4-3). Still, any evening at the ballpark is a treat, and knowing that a good segment of the crowd is composed of fellow yidden and their family and friends is a great reason to smile, as so many of us did.

Thanks to all who participated this year and to the Giants for putting the event on. Next year, at AT&T Park again...and may we win!

We're Going To The Ball Game!

Facebook_HeritageNightTShirt_FrontIt's that time of the year again! CBS invites you to join your fellow congregants and other members of the Bay Area Jewish community for San Francisco Giants Jewish Heritage Night on Tuesday, August 30. This annual celebration of Jewish identity and heritage is always a home run of fun, but this year is going to be extra special!

Our beloved Giants will be taking on some Southwestern serpents (a.k.a., the Arizona Diamondbacks) in a divisional game. Instead of nosebleed seats, we have reserved a block of amazing, Club Level seats! What's so great about Club Level? Just behind these seats is an open area with a wide variety of restaurants, food stands, and bars. (Some of this area is enclosed; if you get chilly, you can go inside to warm up.) There's also a Giants Museum with a variety of memorabilia on display. The museum and food-bar area are only accessible from the Club, Field Club, and luxury seat areas, which reduces the likelihood of a food or beverage run mob scene.

This year, we're also offering two ticket packages.

The $65 event package includes:
- 1 seat in the CBS section (Club Level 230) for the game (begins at 7:15 p.m.)
- A collector's-edition, Jewish-themed Giants hat
- Admission to the Jewish Heritage Night Pregame Party, 5 - 7 p.m. on Terry Francois Boulevard. (Live entertainment and food/drink specials will be available for purchase during the pregame party, with proceeds partially benefiting local charitable programs in the Jewish community.)

The $80 event package includes:
- All of the above, plus one of our CBS Jewish Heritage Night t-shirts! (See front and back of shirt below. You can click on the image to see a larger view.)
