Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek (Chester) welcomes author Abigail Pogrebin on Sunday, March 5th to speak as a part of it's popular Books & Bagels series. Ms. Pogrebin spent an immersive year studying, experiencing and writing about every single Jewish holiday — including each obscure festival and all six fasts–for the first time. Her lively, personal, deeply-researched book, My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew, chronicles what she discovered, how it changed her, and why she believes the Jewish calendar is a blueprint for life, regardless of faith.
There is no charge for this event and it is open to the public. No advance registration is required. For more information, visit cbsrz.org or call the office 860-526-8920.
