Thursday, December 7 @ 6:30PM @ Boonshoft CJCE (525 Versailles Drive, Centerville)

Journalist Abigail Pogrebin made it her mission to research, observe, and write about every Jewish holiday on the calendar—without skipping one festival or fast. A much-expanded version of her popular series for The Forward, her new book, My Jewish Year, chronicles what she learned and how it changed her—as a Jew, a parent, a wife, a citizen, and a Jewish communal leader. Formerly a producer for Charlie Rose at PBS and Mike Wallace at 60 Minutes, Abigail Pogrebin has written for Newsweek, New York Magazine, The Forward, Tablet, and The Daily Beast. She moderates her own interview series at the JCC in Manhattan and is the current president of Central Synagogue in New York. Join us for light refreshments before Abigail speaks.
