“Sarah Hurwitz was Michelle Obama’s head speechwriter, and with this book she becomes Judaism’s speechwriter. ”– ADAM GRANT, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals

“This is a book we have been waiting for, and Hurwitz is an Important new voice on the Jewish scene.”Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, Author, Jewish Literacy

In her new book, Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life—in Judaism, Sarah Hurwitz explores such topics as mindfulness, gratitude, and life balance as she offers a thoughtful reflection on her journey from being a Hebrew school dropout to where she is today. Illuminating why Judaism matters and how its wisdom can transform us, the book has been lauded as a must-read regardless of where you are on the religious spectrum.
