Here All Along with Sarah Hurwitz

January 7 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sarah Hurwitz Headshot

Here All Along with Sarah Hurwitz
Sunday, January 7, 2024 3:00 PM at Shaare Torah

Sarah Hurwitz is author of “Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life – in Judaism (After Finally Choosing to Look There)” and former speechwriter for President Obama and Michelle Obama.


After 10 years as a speechwriter for Hillary Clinton and then for the Obamas, Sarah Hurwitz was ready

for a new challenge, setting her sights on writing a book. No one was more surprised than she when that decision led her to write a book about Judaism, a book that chronicles her personal journey of rediscovery

of the beauty and relevance of Judaism. Most recently, after visiting Hillels at campuses across the country,

she wrote “To Jewish College Students Who Are Scared,” a letter acknowledging their fear and expressing admiration for their courage in standing up to antisemitism.


Hurwitz will be interviewed by ST’s own Adam Simon.

A book signing will follow with books available for purchase.


Admission is free; registration is required: https://shaaretorah.shulcloud.com/event/sarahhurwitz.html
