The Holy Thief by Rabbi Mark Borovitz : $15.00

The Holy Thief by Rabbi Mark Borovitz
Mark Borovitz was a mobster, gangster, con man, gambler, thief, and a drunk. He's seen it all. In this inspiring memoir, he takes you on a journey from the streets to discovering his soul in a prison cell. When Mark was fourteen, his father died and his world came crashing down. He stole, gambled, and drank, beginning a twenty-year life of crime, all the while trying to be the good son, the good brother, the good boy, but his life only spun more out of control until the mob put a hit out on him.

After his release from prison, the drinking and thieving continued until, at the edge of oblivion, he experienced a moment of true divine intervention, a startling revelation that saved his life.

Mark Borovitz proved that you can change your life - profoundly. He is now the rabbi at Beit T'Shuvah in Los Angeles, The House of Return, a rehabilitation facility for addicts of all kinds.

The Holy Thief is the remarkable memoir of an amazing man. It is a true-life gangster story, a passionate love story, and a case study in redemption. Regardless of your faith, you will find his story tragic, funny, uplifting, and inspirational.

"A unique blend of soulful insight mixed with a dose of street-smart profanity...Borovitz reveals what he calls the 'sins' of his past with the fast-paced punch of a crime novel."
