Great Barrington: 'My Jewish Year' author to speak

The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires' Knosh & Knowledge will host Abigail Pogrebin, author of "My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew," at 10:45 a.m. Friday, Nov. 3, at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire, 207 State Road. The program will be followed by lunch.

Pogrebin's undertaking began as an online blog for The Forward, which recorded her immediate experiences in observing a full cycle of the Jewish calendar from Rosh Hashanah through Tisha B'Av — all holidays, major and minor, plus Shabbats.

Cost is $11 with a fresh buffet lunch; program only is $5.

Advance lunch reservations are required by emailing or calling 413-442-4360, ext. 10.
