Life, Love and Judaism: A Conversation About Writing and Spirituality

November 16, 2017

Segal Visitors Center

On the evening of November 16, the Crown Family Center welcomed authors Tova Mirvis and Abigail Pogrebin for a conversation about their recently-published memoirs before an audience of 130. Mirvis' Book of Separation chronicles her movement away from Orthodox Judaism while Pogrebin's My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew emerged from her immersion in studying and celebrating the many fast days and feast days of Judaism. Claire Sufrin, Assistant Director of Jewish Studies, guided the authors through a conversation that touched on the process of writing about one's own life and the possibilities of finding spiritual meaning in the mundane details of daily existence.
