May 23 – Book Discussion Group will meet at 7:30pm to explore Don’t Let My Baby Do Rodeo by Boris Fishman. “Maya Shulman and Alex Rubin met in 1992, when she was a Ukrainian exchange student with “a devil in [her] head” about becoming a chef instead of a medical worker, and he the coddled son of Russian immigrants wanting to toe the water of a less predictable life. Twenty years later, Maya Rubin is a medical worker in suburban New Jersey, and Alex his father’s second in the family business. The great dislocation of their lives is their eight-year-old son Max—adopted from two teenagers in Montana despite Alex’s view that “adopted children are second-class.”
At once a salvation and a mystery to his parents—with whom Max’s biological mother left the child with the cryptic exhortation “don’t let my baby do rodeo”—Max suddenly turns feral, consorting with wild animals, eating grass, and running away to sit face down in a river.”
*May 26 – Lag B’Omer Picnic beginning 5pm at Veterans Park. $15 brings you a kosher picnic feast. Join in and support by bringing salads, other side dishes, beverages, condiments, and paper/plastic goods.
*Volunteers needed. Call Phil at 598-2880.
