Why does there seem to be a Jewish holiday every minute? And what makes these holidays powerful and urgent in this modern moment? Journalist Abigail Pogrebin asked these questions of over 60 rabbis and scholars as she took a deep, and very personal, dive into the Jewish calendar for the first time–researching and observing every single ritual and fast, no matter how obscure or obtuse. The resulting rich, entertaining, humorous, and very honest book–a much-expanded version of her popular series for the Forward–is called My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew. Abby will let us in on where this journey took her and how it changed her as she talks with JCC Manhattan Executive Director Rabbi Joy Levitt.Buy tickets/get more info now
