Rabbi Mark Mallach is Rabbi Emeritus. He joined us in 1999 after serving as the Senior Rabbi of Temple Beth El in West Palm Beach, Florida. Rabbi Mallach was not new to our area; he had previously served as the Assistant Rabbi of Temple Beth Shalom of Livingston, New Jersey from 1994 – 1997. He served as our Senior Rabbi until July 2020.
Rabbi Mallach is a graduate of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America where he garnered academic prizes of excellence in areas of Talmud Study and Homiletics. In addition, Rabbi Mallach, a graduate of the University of Maryland’s School of Pharmacy, is the first Registered Pharmacist to be ordained as a Conservative Rabbi by the Seminary. Plus, as an avid bicyclist, he can frequently be seen on our local roads. In 2004, Rabbi Mallach became perhaps the only clergy-person to do a cross-country bicycle ride, which he did as a charitable fundraiser!
Rabbi Mallach brings to our community his wealth of experience in Adult, Family and Youth Education, along with his vision of charting a Judaic path to choose to live a Jewishly enriched lifestyle. Having embarked on the journey of moving from living in just the secular world, with all of its inherent pressures, to embracing the spiritually enhanced world of Jewish observance, Rabbi Mallach is committed to bringing the teachings of our tradition to others in order to invest their lives with a sense of a greater numinous content.
Rabbi Mallach shares in our community with his wife Genya, daughters: Elana and Scott Rosenbaum and grandchildren Hayley, Hayden, and Hayzel, and their younger daughter, Ester and grandchild Winter.
