Ep 014: Rabbi Mark Borovitz – Mobster to Rabbi, Sharing his Recovery Journey & How He Helps Others Today
Officially ordained in 2000 at the University of Judaism with a Master’s in Rabbinic Literature, Rabbi Mark Borovitz combined his knowledge of Torah and street smarts to shape his calling: helping recovering addicts find their way in the world.
Spiritual Leader, Author, Senior Rabbi, CEO, ex-con, recovering alcoholic, and overall anomaly, he is able to reach both the addict and the congregant, and de-stigmatize this life threatening disease.
As the CEO and Senior Rabbi of Beit T’Shuvah, a nonprofit, non-sectarian, Jewish addiction treatment center and synagogue community in Los Angeles.
After being released from prison in 1988 he began his work at Beit T’Shuvah. Over the past twenty-eight years, he has helped co-create one of the most exceptional approaches to addiction treatment and criminal rehabilitation and reintegration in the world.
In early 2004, Rabbi Mark was one of seven people invited to a round table discussion with President George W. Bush about faith and recovery. The Rabbi was also mentioned in President Bush’s speech before the first conference on Faith-Based Initiatives.
Rabbi Mark Borovitz’s tireless efforts have been the driving force behind the robust and growing movement that is Beit T’Shuvah. Read his newest book, Finding Recovery and Yourself in Torah: A Daily Spiritual Path to Wholeness.
