I’m checking out the 2008 990 filing of Beit T’shuva (House of Repentance), a Jewish recovery house. “The most important component of the Beit T’shuva faith-based model of recovery is the spiritual community.”
Rabbi Mark Borovitz, the founder and author of the memoir The Holy Thief: A Con Man’s Journey from Darkness to Light, brought in $154,048 in 2008 but he was out-earned by Beit T’shuva’s executive director, Harriet Rossetto, who got $157,500. The CFO, Faina Geller Lite, received a mere $91,562.
Why would anyone want to steal money when they could earn a handsome living doing good with their own recovery center?
