Adult Education Class led by Rabbi Mike Swarttz

I am very excited to let you know that my adult education class this year will be a deep dive into a new book entitled Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life—in Judaism (After Finally Choosing to Look There).

It’s a long title, and to my mind the most important part is in the parentheses.  The author is Sarah Hurwitz, who was the “quintessential lapsed Jew” (from the jacket) who rediscovered Judaism in her 30’s and became totally enamored and enriched by the richness of Jewish tradition that she learned.  What she found transformed her life, and she set out to write a book to close the gap between the depth of what Judaism offers and the way so many Jews like her understand and experience it.

Never mind that Sarah is from the Boston area.  Never mind that she served as Michelle Obama’s chief speechwriter for six years.  Never mind that I know her. 

The book is written in an accessible narrative and non-academic style, and very engaging. Join me as we explore the richness of Jewish tradition through Sarah’s very astute eyes.

Mimimum number of students:  8.
