      In this wide-ranging discussion with Professor Laura Yares, Sarah Hurwitz will discuss her recently-published book, Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life – in Judaism (After Finally Choosing to Look There). She’ll talk about what led her to engage in deep Jewish learning and what she discovered during her journey.

Prior to working in the White House, she was the Chief Speechwriter for Hillary Clinton on her 2008 presidential campaign, as well as Deputy Chief Speechwriter for Senator John Kerry and General Wesley Clark during the 2004 Presidential campaign cycle.
