Episode 33: Sarah Hurwitz: From the White House to the Torah


Sarah Hurwitz had what she calls her dream job-- she was a White House speechwriter for a president and first lady she admired.  At the end of the Obama Administration, she took a break from politics and wrote a book that chronicles her foray into Jewish learning and tradition. In this episode, Can We Talk host Nahanni Rous talks with Sarah Hurwitz about speechwriting, the women of the Bible, silent meditation, what she’s looking for in a presidential candidate, and Sarah's new book, Here All Along, Finding Meaning, Spirituality and a Deeper Connection to Life-- in Judaism (After Finally Choosing to Look There).
