RJD Moms Book Club

We will be reading "A Backpack, a Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka: A Memoir" by Lev Golinkin.

Preview:
A compelling story of two intertwined journeys: a Jewish refugee family fleeing persecution and a young man seeking to reclaim a shattered past. In the twilight of the Cold War (the late 1980s), nine-year old Lev Golinkin and his family cross the Soviet border with only ten suitcases, $600, and the vague promise of help awaiting in Vienna. Years later, Lev, now an American adult, sets out to retrace his family's long trek, locate the strangers who fought for his freedom, and in the process, gain a future by understanding his past.

RJD will pay for attendees paperback or Kindle version of the book if desired. Please e-mail Becki at RebeccaFaktorovich@juf.org with your format preference.

RJD programs are funded in part by Genesis Philanthropy Group.
