Abstract
Incarcerated, alcoholic, con men dont typically undergo a spiritual shift while sitting in a holding cell, and decide to change the trajectory of their life in an instant..., unless they are Rabbi Mark. Officially ordained ten years ago at the University of Judaism, with a Masters 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, Head Rabbi, COO, and overall anomaly, he is able to reach both the addict and the congregant, and de-stigmatize this life threatening disease. Rabbi Marks leadership is unparalleled. He is a life coach to community members, addicts, educators, dignitaries, and executives all seeking his wisdom-a blend of acute savvy and rabbinic teachings. When working with residents, he is living proof that change is possible; when speaking to the congregant, he stands for hope that every man has a higher purpose. In early 2004, Rabbi Mark was one of the 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. He has been the featured speaker at many seminars discussing spirituality and recovery, including CASA at Columbia University and Spirituality Day at Northwestern University. In 2011, Sheriff Leroy D. Baca of the Los Angeles County Sheriff s Department invited him to address inmates with insight into a better way of life. As the organization has grown, the Rabbis unique take on addiction treatment has solidified him as an expert and forerunner in the field; Addiction is a hole in the soul. It is a spiritual malady that says there is something wrong. Recovery is about I Matter and Im a Holy Soul. He co-authored his biography, The Holy Thief for which the rights were recently optioned by a major motion picture studio. The story of Rabbi Marks work is a featured chapter in the book, Stalking Elijah by Roger Kamenetz. Rabbi Mark has been featured in publications such as the Los Angeles Times, Moment Magazine, The Jewish Journal, The Wall Street Journal and Israels largest newspaper, Haaretz Daily Newspaper
