We all know how to play the game. You go to a party and the woman next to you mentions that she just moved from Detroit to Las Vegas and for the next few minutes, the conversation goes something like this. “Really? I have a cousin in Detroit, or maybe it’s West Bloomfield,” you say with an immediate sense of connection. “Do you know David Greenberg? He used to be the president of Congregation Beth Israel.” She smiles and responds that her best friend from high school is a member of Beth Israel and that she goes to a doctor named Greenberg, so he’s probably the same guy.
We’ve all been there and now its your turn to play.
Take a stroll down memory lane and join us for an interactive evening where you will have the opportunity to virtually meet other people from your hometown! Upon registering, you will be asked to provide your hometown and will be placed into a breakout room with likewise people. You never know who you might meet!
We will be joined by published author and Temple Beth Sholom member, Lynn S. Rosenberg. Upon moving to Las Vegas more than twenty years ago, Lynn Rosenberg was immediately struck by the eclectic range of residents she met. Throughout the years, Rosenberg was intrigued by stories of how other people, including many of her colleagues, ended up moving to Las Vegas. She became even more interested in what attracted each person to ultimately put down roots in a rather unique and unexpected setting. “While listening to so many personal anecdotes, I noticed a common sentiment emerge. Every single person I questioned or interviewed said ‘I never thought I would live here.’ So, I set out to write a book to share their stories with the world,” Rosenberg says.
In 50 States 50 Stories, Rosenberg has compiled true stories collected over a five year period from people from all 50 U.S. states (and beyond) and from all walks of life who chose to make Las Vegas their home. Rosenberg aims to broaden the way people so often view “Sin City.” “For many people, Las Vegas is a place to visit as an adult playground but not a place to call home,” she says. “The stories from my book will hopefully change that perception.”
