My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew
Abigail Pogrebin embarked on a year of research and writing about every Jewish ritual, fast and festival in one Jewish year. Her new book is infused with layers of meaning and intimate, often humorous details. She had great teachers for this journey, over 60 rabbis, and their wisdom weaves throughout Pogrebin’s expedition.
The author will be in conversation with Rabbi Ed Feinstein, Senior Rabbi, Valley Beth Shalom Synagogue.
Pogrebin is also the author of Stars of David: Prominent Jews Talk About Being Jewish. She is a former producer for Mike Wallace at 60 Minutes and for Bill Moyers at PBS. She has written for numerous publications including Newsweek, New York Magazine, The Daily Beast, the Forward and Tablet, and currently serves as President of Central Synagogue in Manhattan.
