Who Knows One?

Who Knows One?

Tuesday, July 20, 2021 - 7:00 pm


WHO KNOWS ONE? is an internet game show about Jewish community and connection,
two values core to us at Spertus.

The game is live, fast-paced, and hilarious—and underlying it all is a spirit of kehilla, community.
In fact, the community (that’s YOU!) can impact the game through donations that
unlock clues and provide lifelines to help your team claim victory!

Think of it as Jewish geography on steroids.
Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle

Tuesday, July 20 at 7 PM CT

when we take over the WHO KNOWS ONE? show!

Broadcast on Facebook Live, the event will be hosted by WHO KNOWS ONE? founder Micah Hart.
(Watch a video in which Micah explains the game!) Spertus Institute’s Brooke Herszage,
Assistant Director of Mentoring and Programs, will co-host!
