ABIGAIL POGREBIN is the author of the 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 NewsweekNew York Magazine, The ForwardTablet, 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.
