Join us for our final event in the Robert N. Levine 25th Anniversary Lecture Series. This evening will feature Abigail Pogrebin in conversation with Rabbi Robert N. Levine.
Abigail Pogrebin is the author of the My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays; One Wondering Jew, which came out of her popular column for The Forward and which chronicles her experience researching and observing every holiday in the Jewish calendar.
Pogrebin is also the author of Stars of David: Prominent Jews Talk about Being Jewish, for which she interviewed everyone from Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Steven Spielberg about Jewish identity– a book that was featured on Charlie Rose and “Good Morning America,” and was adapted for the Off-Broadway stage, produced by Tony winner Daryl Roth. Pogrebin’s second book, One and the Same, delved into every aspect of growing up as a twin, including the author’s personal experience as an identical double.
Pogrebin 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 moderates her own interview series at The JCC in Manhattan called “What Everyone’s Talking About,” where her guests have included Malcolm Gladwell, Tom Brokaw, Nora Ephron, Nicholas Kristof and Mario Batali. Pogrebin lives in Manhattan and is currently the President of Central Synagogue.
