Episode 4. Abigail Pogrebin, Author. The Spirituality of Marking Time.
This week on "Everything is Connected," author Abigail Pogrebin joins Jonathan for a lively conversation about her deep dive into the heart of Judaism. We discuss what she's learned about marking time through the observance of an ancient, traditional sequence of festivals and fast-days... some of which she'd never heard of before undertaking a project that left even some of her closest family and friends scratching their heads. As she went about her immersive research, she interviewed enough rabbis to become a self-proclaimed "rabbi groupie," which is when we knew we had to have her on the show.Abigail Pogrebin is the author of My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays; One Wondering Jew – a much-expanded chronicle of her popular column for the Forward, for which she spent 12 months researching and observing every holiday in the Jewish calendar.Pogrebin is also the author of Stars of David: Prominent Jews Talk about Being Jewish, which went into eight hardcover printings and was later adapted for the Off-Broadway stage. Pogrebin’s second book, One and the Same, delved into every aspect of growing up as a twin, (she’s an identical), and her bestselling Amazon Kindle Single, Showstopper, recounts her teenage adventure in the original Broadway cast of Stephen Sondheim’s flop, “Merrily We Roll Along.”Abigail was formerly a broadcast producer for Fred Friendly, Charlie Rose and Bill Moyers at PBS, then for Ed Bradley and Mike Wallace at 60 Minutes. She has been published in many magazines and newspapers including Newsweek, New York Magazine, The Forward, Tablet, and The Daily Beast. She has moderated conversations at The JCC in Manhattan, 92Y, The Skirball Center, and Shalom Hartman Institute. Pogrebin lives in Manhattan and is currently the President of Central Synagogue.Learn more about Abigail at her website by clicking here.
