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 for Hiddush – Freedom of Religion in 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.

  1. Hi David,
    just to show you nervous I was at my Reading yesterday,,I gave you a shout out as ben and after I said Kaushal, our mutual reader friend so it sounded like ben Kaushal…interesting combination but not what I wanted to say:) Sorry about that:) I was of course, thinking of you🌹

  2. Hello David, thank you for liking my latest post. I like your ‘The Sceptic’s Kaddish’. I learned a lot about English while teaching it to Spanish students. John Dickinson
