Join us for our virtual Book Brunch on Zoom! We have a wonderful group that comes together with Rabbi Kitty for good discussion and a great time. Even if you have not read the book, we encourage you to join us and listen in on the conversation.
Please note: Our August meeting will be held at a private residence, so RSVP early to join us!
Jacobo's Rainbow by David Hirshberg
Saturday, August 21st from 11:00am to 12:30pm.
"Jacobo’s Rainbow is a sweeping examination of the unique buckle in time that was the ‘Sixties,’ told from the perspective of the ultimate outsider—a young man who was born and raised in the tiny New Mexico town of Arroyo Grande, a town so isolated, it didn’t even legally exist. Jacobo’s journey takes him from that remote enclave to a college campus, where he becomes immersed in the Free Speech movement, and to the battlefields of Vietnam. His insights and observations about society, his peers, bigotry and anti-Semitism are both trenchant and currently relevant to the culture wars and threats to free speech we see on our college campuses and society at large today. Jacobo’s Rainbow is a deeply moving, sensitive, and profound novel—a definite must-read.— Marcia Clark, author of Blood Defense and Final Judgment.
