Spirituality and Social Justice with Ruth Messinger, Sarah Hurwitz, and Dr. Erica Brown
Are you doing enough to make the world a better place?
Explore this question as Dr. Erica Brown, director of the Mayberg Center for Jewish Education and Leadership at The George Washington University, speaks with Ruth Messinger, an iconic social justice activist and former president of the American Jewish World Service, and Sarah Hurwitz, the former chief speechwriter for First Lady Michelle Obama, about the intersections between Judaism, spirituality, and social justice. This is the Mayberg Center’s third annual “Conversations that Matter” forum.
Messinger does international human rights work for AIDS Free World and serves as the inaugural Social Justice Fellow at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. She is also the Social Justice Activist-in-Residence at the JCC of Manhattan.
Hurwitz previously served as senior speechwriter for President Barack Obama and chief speechwriter for then-Senator Hillary Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign. She is writing a book about the wisdom, insight, and inspiration she found when she began studying Judaism as an adult.

I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
Featured Folk: Some of the people here can also be seen on other pages on this site.
