The Telling: How Judaism's Essential Book Reveals the Meaning of Life

Through our partnership with United Hatzalah of Israel, all domestic attendees will receive a complimentary copy of The Telling following the discussion. One copy per household.

Book will be available for pickup at the synagogue.  Registrants will receive an email when the books are available for pickup.  

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 Yossi Klein 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. 

As a part of Scarsdale Synagogue's adult learning curriculum, Mark would be delighted to conduct a Zoom conversation about the lessons we learn from the Exodus story and at the Pesach Seder.  This session will likely leave you with a renewed appreciation of our treasure (the Torah), while enabling you to make your Pesach Seders what they should be: the most meaningful, important and interesting evening of the Jewish year. 


Thank you for your interest in the program.  Registration is now closed.  If you are a synagogue member, an email was sent on Wednesday and will be sent again on Friday at 2:45 p.m with the zoom link.  You can also find the zoom link on our members only Zoom link page on our website.  (NOTE: you must be logged into your synagogue account to access this page.)  If you are not a member, you can try emailing
