Through his collection of true stories in TheBest Boy in the United States of America, Dr. Ron Wolfson captures the heart of the American Jewish experience. Framed between his Russian immigrant grandfather's wet sloppy kisses and Dr. Wolfson's own wet sloppy kisses to his grandchildren, TheBest Boy in the United States of Americais more than a memoir of a singular person's experience, it is the memoir of the American Jew. His stories will make you laugh and cry--sometimes at the same time. Dr. Wolfson, a keen observer, chronicles his family, friends, teachers--virtually anyone he meets. He relays his experiences with humor and compassion. In his journey from an unruly Hebrew school student to renowned Jewish educator he encounters and presents a fanciful but true-to-life cast of characters. From Mrs. B, who financially out-maneuvered Warren Buffet, to his mother's ethical will, his memoirs delight, move and inspire his readers. Because his reflections teach us the value of the Jewish family, the joy of being Jewish and how to be a mensch, the book should be read by every Jewish educator and parent, but is also an enjoyable read for anyone who has ever been a child or grandchild. It is worth noting that Dr. Wolfson's narrative has a universal aspect that will make it appealing even to a non-Jewish audience, as he painstakingly explains every Yiddish or Hebrew word and Jewish custom. Dr. Wolfson understands the power of a story, especially a shared one. These stories, in essence, are a reflection road map on how to create a Jewish identity in the next generation of "best boys and girls in the United States of America." The Best Boy in the United States of Americashould come with a warning: the reader could find themselves laughing at inopportune times or having the insatiable urge to read the book aloud to family and friends. For all its humor, Dr. Wolfson's memoir has a serious calling to all Jewish adults--what Jewish legacy are we passing to the next generation?The Best Boy in the United States of Americais not just an entertaining memoir, it is an important one. --Cathy Sussman "Jewish Book Council "
