On the Other Hand: Ten Minutes of Torah - Emor: Gratitude, Obligation, and Responsibility: A Jewish Year with Abigail Pogrebin

Rabbi Rick Jacobs

Parashat Emor lays out the sacred calendar of the Jewish people as we know it in the Torah, and there’s no one better to discuss this parashah with Rabbi Jacobs than Abigail Pogrebin, author of the book “My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew.” Pogrebin tells us about her year of studying, preparing for, and observing all 18 holidays on the Hebrew calendar, and what she learned about gratitude, obligation, and responsibility.
