G’Mar Hatima Tova – We are SEALED in the BOOK OF GOOD!

By Rabbi Mark Borovitz

Dear Community,

It is with great Joy and Gratitude that I send this Yom Kippur Message. As I looked back at last year’s message, I can say that my goals of improving were reached. I improved myself and made less of the same errors and fewer new ones in 5774. Beit T’Shuvah grew in saving souls and helping families in 5774, even helping families who lost loved ones.

I am grateful to be your Rabbi. I am grateful for your friendship, your input, your partnership and your love. I am in Joy about the changes we have made and look forward to making more improvements to our already amazing program.

I know that we—you, the staff and Board of Beit T’Shuvah, and I— have made a difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities. I hear all the time about our speakers, our clergy, our Staff, our Freedom Song Cast, our Youth Services Group and, in this past year, about our Institute trainers and teachers.

I am joyous about the great people who work at Beit T’Shuvah and their dedication to saving souls, helping families and living well.

I am also grateful to be able to stand before you, in and with all my imperfections, and acknowledge that I am not, have not, nor will be perfect. I also ask for forgiveness from any of you who I have harmed and not made T’Shuvah with, please let me know what I have done to separate us. I also say that I am recommitting to the Covenant I made 27 years ago to serve God, Community, Family and Friends. I recommit to God, to you all, to my family and friends and to myself.

G’Mar Hatima Tova – We are SEALED in the BOOK OF GOOD!

You Matter,
Rabbi Mark
