My Jewish Year

by Abigail Pogrebin

  1. In My Jewish Year, author Abigail Pogrebin quotes many different rabbis’ and teachers’ perspectives on how to understand these different holidays. Was there a quote that stood out for you?
  2. Is there a difference between the Judaism you learned as a child and the Judaism you create or maintain as an adult?
  3. Are there holidays that you love and holidays that don’t resonate for you, or that you actively dislike? Has the book made you feel differently about any of them?
  4. Were there particular traditions that surprised you when you read the book?
