Stars of David

Prominent Jews talk about being Jewish

Praise for Stars of David

“In search of the 'secret handshake,' she interviewed 62 prominent Jews about being Jewish...The responses are as varied as fingerprints.”
—People Magazine

“Abigail Pogrebin compiles an impressive collection of short, digestible bites about an equally impressive swath of '’prominent Jews’ for her book.”
—Salt Lake Tribune

“Through Pogrebin’s fly on the wall approach, you feel like you are sitting beside the author during the interviews”

“Reading it may revitalize you, too. ”

“But Pogrebin, a former producer for Charlie Rose and “60 Minutes,” had the tools to push her interviewees beyond their comfort zone. ”
—Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angleles

“Perhaps it took someone coming from Pogrebin's starting point to conceptualize this project and lend an empathetic (and disarming) ear to her subjects. ”
—The Forward

Stars of David is an endearing book done with skill and taste...”
—Liz Smith, New York Post

“Impressively, Pogrebin got below the surfaces... ”
—St. Louis Post Dispatch

“...a provocative and enjoyable book for Jews and gentiles alike.”
—Library Journal

“Consistently engaging...”
—Publishers Weekly

“...a wide and interesting variety of stories about faith and the lack thereof, family memory, ritual, continuity, and the choices they have made. ”
—The Jewish Week
