David Bogomolny was born in Jerusalem to parents who made Aliyah from the USSR in the mid-70’s. He grew up in America and returned to Israel as an adult. He works as a grant writer for the Jewish Agency for Israel. He and his wife and daughter live in Jerusalem.

He began writing the ‘Skeptic’s Kaddish for the Atheist’ in Jerusalem, Israel, 30 days after burying his father in South Brunswick, New Jersey, USA. His series was originally published on the Times of Israel blogs.

Read his kaddish memoir.

  1. Hi David – after you kindly liked my post ‘Shiba Inu’ (I don’t really show the site to anyone so that was really encouraging!) I visited your page and read ‘Natural English, or: Sidespin’. I was so blown away I have kept the tab open on my phone for a few weeks now. Truly beautiful and so lyrical. Looking forward to reading more. Poppy
