We received an invitation from the Children of Abraham interfaith group to a virtual “Fireside Chat” with Sarah Hurwitz, who was the head speechwriter for First Lady Michelle Obama. This free webinar and discussion will be this Thursday, May 14, at 8pm on Zoom.
Ms. Hurwitz is the author of Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life — in Judaism (After Finally Choosing to Look There). While the book is specific to Judaism, the issue of a search for 21st century spirituality within seemingly archaic rituals, and the challenge of making traditional religions seem relevant to future generations, crosses all our faith traditions.
Please register in advance for this webinar:
From 2009 to 2017, Sarah Hurwitz served as a White House speechwriter, first as a senior speechwriter for President Barack Obama and then as head speechwriter for First Lady Michelle Obama. Prior to serving in the Obama Administration, Sarah was chief speechwriter for Hillary Clinton on her 2008 presidential campaign. Sarah is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law school.
