Sarah Hurwitz


Sarah Hurwitz, a former speechwriter for Hillary Clinton and Michelle and Barack Obama, aimed to show others that “Judaism is worth choosing” in her recent book Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life -- in Judaism. Hurwitz’s sources for the book are a politically and religiously diverse group that includes Joseph Telushkin, Dennis Prager, Jonathan Sacks, Lawrence Hoffman, Ze’ev Maghen, Yoram Hazony, Shai Held, Avi Weiss, Shaye Cohen, Adam Kirsch, Jonathan Rosen, Art Green, Elliot Dorff, Donniel Hartman, Judith Shulevitz, and Elie Kaunfer. She draws from them in chapters about the Torah, prayer, the Sabbath, Jewish holidays, and death. Hurwitz is also a member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.
