Dov Elbaum

Dov Elbaum was born to an ultra-Orthodox Jerusalem family in 1970, and was raised in yeshivas. During his army service, he left the ultra-Orthodox lifestyle and served as a military reporter for the soldiers' magazine, Bamahane. Later, he worked as a journalist for Hadashot and Yedioth Ahronoth and served as editor-in-chief of Yedioth Ahronoth Publishing House. Elbaum studied in special program for gifted students at Tel Aviv University and earned an MA in Jewish philosophy. He now hosts a TV talk show and teaches at Tel Aviv University and at several other educational institutes, integrating religious and secular thought through his research and fiction-writing. Elbaum has published a number of research studies and essays as well as novels and books for children. He was awarded the President's Prize for Young Writers in 2002 and the Liebhaber Prize for Religious Tolerance in 2013.
