Scarsdale Synagogue’s Brotherhood presents Mark Gerson. As a part of Scarsdale Synagogue’s adult learning curriculum, Mark will conduct a Zoom conversation about the lessons we learn from the Exodus story and at the Pesach Seder. This session will likely leave your members with a renewed appreciation of our treasure (the Torah), while enabling them to make their Pesach Seders what they should be: the most meaningful, important and interesting evening of the Jewish year.
Through a partnership with United Hatzalah of Israel, all domestic attendees will receive a complimentary copy of The Telling following the discussion. One per household. (Make sure to provide your mailing address on the registration form.)
Mark is beginning a national virtual tour ahead of the publication of his book on the Haggadah, The Telling: How Judaism’s Essential Book Reveals the Meaning of Life — which will be published by St. Martin’s Essentials in March. It promises to be one of the most important Jewish books of the year. You might have already heard Mark’s popular podcast, The Rabbi’s Husband. The podcast is noted for having the world’s most interesting people discuss their favorite Torah passage. Previous guests include Senators Cory Booker, Bill Cassidy, Tom Cotton and Marco Rubio, Congressmen Mike Gallagher, Josh Gottheimer and Max Rose, Ambassadors Michael Oren and Ron Dermer, Rabbis Matt Gewirtz, Jonah Pesner, Moshe Schneiner, and David Wolpe, Pastors Teo Hayashi, Rick Pino, Samuel Rodriguez and Robert Stearns, authors YossiKlein Halevi, Sarah Hurwitz and Bret Stephens, Yale Law School Dean Heather Gerken, Yeshiva University President Ari Berman and Hebrew Union College President Andrew Rehfeld, Professor AJ Levine and Marc Brettler, NFL players Tiki Barber and Benjamin Watson and many others. Mark is the co-founder and Chairman of United Hatzalah, the crowd-sourced system of volunteer first responders that enables Israelis to be treated within the three minutes that separate life from death following a trauma. He is also the co-founder and Chairman of African Mission Healthcare, which supports the work of Christian missionary physicians in Africa. He can discuss the work of these organizations in his session as well.
