On May 10th, Stark & Stark’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee hosted a virtual book discussion and Q&A led by Joseph Lemkin, Esq. to celebrate Jewish Heritage Month. Attendees discussed the book By the Grace of the Game: The Holocaust, a Basketball Legacy, and an Unprecedented American Dream, which was led by author Dan Grunfeld, who wrote this remarkable story about his family’s incredible journey from Auschwitz to the NBA, demonstrating how the sport of basketball has the ability to unify people of all backgrounds.

About Jewish Heritage Month

During the month of May, the Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum pay tribute to the generations of Jewish Americans who helped form the fabric of American history, culture, and society. The month of May was chosen as Jewish Heritage Month in 2006, in part due to a celebration of the 350th Anniversary of American Jewish History in May 2004.
