Lauded by Newsweek as one of America's most influential rabbis, Mark S. Golub is recognized within American Jewry as a leading interviewer and television producer. His award-winning national program, "L'Chayim," has aired continuously since 1979 with a guest list that reads like a "Who's Who" on the world Jewish scene. Rabbi Golub's interviews have been reprinted in Jewish newspapers and magazines as well as in an anthology published by SUNY Press.



Rabbi Golub is an extremely successful entrepreneur in the field of ethnic television.  He created the Russian Television Network of America (RTN) which serves the needs of Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union. The company now nationally distributes RTN along with nine other Russian-language channels as the only vertically integrated ethnic television company in America.

Rabbi Golub is a gifted teacher with an unusual ability to explain the genius of the Jewish tradition and the uniqueness of Jewish values. He has taught in the CCNY Jewish Studies Department and HUC-JIR's Cantorial School and School of Education. In addition, he is a frequent guest lecturer throughout the country on the meaning of being Jewish and on Midrash (Jewish commentaries to the Bible).

HUC-JIR recognized these talents of Rabbi Golub when they bestowed upon him an honorary doctorate, describing him as an "Innovative Rabbi" whose "gifts as a communicator have helped disseminate the meaning of Judaism, whose commitment to Torah has inspired and enlightened the chavurot he founded and sustains, whose experience and creativity have earned him a position of leadership in Jewish broadcasting, and whose spirit finds expression in his religious conviction and in his artistic talent."  He also received the prestigious Tree of Life award from the Jewish National Fund in recognition of his significant work in media in promoting Jewish life. 

Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel describes Rabbi Golub as "a committed and passionate television professional who has enhanced Jewish understanding in the general Jewish community through programming he has created for nearly thirty years.”

"There may be no one more suited to head the first national Jewish channel in America than Mark Golub," said Dr. Wiesel.

Rabbi Golub's eclectic family background provides him with a unique appreciation for every major movement of Jewish life. His maternal grandfather was an Orthodox rabbi; his paternal grandparents helped create the Reconstructionist movement, and his father assisted in founding the first Conservative synagogue in Trumbull, Connecticut.  Mark S. Golub was ordained a Reform rabbi by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York City.

All those associated with L'Chayim wish to express their deep appreciation to Sheldon Pearlman for his caring and artistry in the creation of the L'Chayim website.
and also to his lovely granddaughter Ariana
