A good sized crowd came to Temple Sinai on Sunday, November 17th to hear Sarah Hurwitz speak. From 2009 to 2017, Sarah Hurwitz served as a White House speechwriter, first for President Barack Obama and then as the chief speechwriter for First Lady Michelle Obama. She worked with Mrs. Obama to craft a number of widely acclaimed addresses, including her 2012 and 2016 Democratic National Convention speeches and her political speeches during the 2016 campaign. During the 2008 presidential primary, Hurwitz was the chief speechwriter for Senator Hillary Clinton. Hurwitz is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, and is currently a fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School.
