How do I pass this variable into ruby code on the same page:
<% Post.recent(selected).each do |post| %> ..... <% end %>

You need to contact the rails server with your variable somehow. This usually involves either an AJAX request or a POST/PUT to the server. There's no immediate way to get access to variables the way you describe :(
