Jews and Chess, presented by David Rudofsky

Nearly 50% of Chess World Champions have been Jewish, including Emanuel Lasker, Mikhail Botvinnik, Mikhail Tal, and Bobby Fischer. In this Tish, David Rudofsky will take a look at the lives of these Jewish chess champions, and also explore aspects of the game of Chess, the Jewish people and the culture surrounding both that has led to so many Jews reaching the highest levels of competitive chess. You do not have to know how to play chess to appreciate this Tish.


Multi-access Tishes are held at 9:00 a.m. ET on Shabbat in the SAJ Social Hall in person and also can be attended using the Zoom room listed below.
