Summary
The author describes her research on the holidays of the Jewish calendar and how she came to understand how these celebrations have lasted for thousands of years
Summary
Although she grew up following some holiday rituals, Pogrebin realized how little she knew about their foundational purpose and contemporary relevance; she wanted to understand what had kept these holidays alive and vibrant, some for thousands of years. Her curiosity led her to embark on an entire year of intensive research, observation, and writing about the milestones on the religious calendar
