A Jewish Book Club! with Rabbi Ellen Triebwasser

On February 28, we will start our new book, “Here All Along: Finding Meaning, Spirituality, and a Deeper Connection to Life–in Judaism” by Sarah Hurwitz.

On a whim, Sarah Hurwitz attended an introductory class on Judaism, which led to a years-long journey during which Hurwitz visited the offices of rabbis, attended Jewish meditation retreats, sat at the Shabbat tables of Orthodox families, and read hundreds of books about Judaism—all in dogged pursuit of answers to her biggest questions. What she found transformed her life, and she wondered: How could there be such a gap between the richness of what Judaism offers and the way so many Jews like her understand and experience it?

For February 28, please read the introduction and Part I.
