Jews You Should Know

Jan 15, 2020


Sarah Hurwitz is one of the most gifted and accomplished speechwriters in the modern political world. As the primary writer for Michelle Obama - and previously for Hillary Clinton - she has had a front row seat to history unfolding, and played a role in shaping the public's understanding of it.

But Sarah is also a passionate Jew, and she recently focused her prodigious research and writing skills on learning about and publishing on Judaism; her book, "Here All Along," presents her argument for Judaism's relevancy and deep meaning in today's world.



Jews You Should Know introduces the broader community to interesting and inspiring Jewish men and women making a difference in our world. Some are already famous, some not yet so. But each is a Jew You Should Know.

The host, Rabbi Ari Koretzky, is Executive Director of MEOR Maryland (, a premier Jewish outreach and educational organization. MEOR operates nationally on twenty campuses and in Manhattan; visit the national website at
