About Dan

Dan Sofer's award-winning novels explore the funny, unexpected, and adventurous sides of Jewish life, lore, and legend. Many of his stories are set in Jerusalem.

In 2001, Dan Sofer moved from Johannesburg to Jerusalem, from the cradle of humankind to the cradle of monotheism.

Along the way, he studied archaeology in the City of David, drove a tank in the Jordan Valley, delved into the Talmud in the Judean hills, represented an entire continent in the International Bible Contest, and swam with Tiger sharks (unintentionally!) in Mozambique.

Dan lives in Israel with a supermodel, a princess, and a mermaid.
