Mark Gerson of GLG on Charity, Investing, Inflation, and Valuations (EP.186)

Panic with Friends - Howard Lindzon

You yutes have it so good. Mark and I used to walk up hill in the snow both ways to school, we had Hebrew class 8 days a week, and we had to read actual books at an actual library. I first met Mark about 15 years ago in the early days of Stocktwits; at the Macanudo Cigar bar. We talk charitable work, market cycles, investing, inflation, and valuation. It was good to catch up. I hope you enjoy our conversation and appreciate how good you have it. Guest - Mark Gerson, Chairman at African Mission Healthcare, United Hatzalah of Israel, and Host of The Rabbi’s Husband Podcast.

Mark Gerson on How the Seder Teaches Freedom Through Food

The Tikvah Podcast

In almost a week, Jews all over the world will sit down at their seder tables and retell the story of the Exodus, of the Jewish people’s national deliverance from Egypt. Of course, in the seder Jews retell that story in a highly choreographed, highly ritualized ceremonial meal. Particular food items are used for particular purposes, and carefully delineated instructions are given for what to do with each. Why do Jews celebrate national deliverance by eating and drinking at all? How does food, of all things, illuminate freedom? To help us understand the significance of food and drink on Passover, in this week’s podcast the entrepreneur and philanthropist Mark Gerson joins Mosaic editor Jonathan Silver. Gerson is the author of a new book, The Telling: How Judaism’s Essential Book Reveals the Meaning of Life, a commentary on the Passover Haggadah. In this episode, he analyzes the many foods prescribed by the Haggadah, and how each of them in their own way gets at the heart of Jewish national freedom.  Musical selections in this podcast are drawn from the Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, op. 31a, composed by Paul Ben-Haim and performed by the ARC Ensemble.

The Jewish Story: Interlude: Haggadah - Interview with Mark Gerson

The Land of Israel Network

Telling the story of the Exodus is something so simple that we do it every year, and so complicated that we never get it quite right. With all the effort we put into preparation for a kosher Pesach, it is worth dusting off the Haggadah a couple of weeks early in or to prepare for an awesome Seder. Author Mark Gerson joins me to discuss his new book about the Haggadah and how we can best access its energy and wisdom.Photo Credit: https://www.flickr.com/photos/160866001@N07/48228219311
