It's a must for baseball fans-Jewish or otherwise.

This engaging and well-put-together documentary has universal appeal to sports fans, regardless of ethnic background. It has a running time of 91 minutes that passes by much too quickly.

"Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story" not only lives up to its title -- how could it not? -- but also delivers a bit extra as well.

Good info. But Jews and Baseball is too genteel, too reverential and not nearly exciting enough.

(Prioritizes) statistics and on-field accomplishments over larger questions of religion, culture and community.

The film feels simultaneously micromanaged and slapdash, spouting generalities about the game while neglecting to show a full at-bat.

Were it not for a masterly production coup...this slight and unambitious work would be wholly indistinguishable from basic-cable filler.

I doubt there's much here any die-hard fan doesn't already know, but having it retold from the perspective of a struggling, respect-hungry community merely makes the metaphoric affinities of the game that much more persuasive.

The organization, the writing by Ira Berkow, the footage, the research, all excellent. But it could have been so much more.
