This chapter presents a case study of King David. David, born in Almaty, Kazakhstan, was the product of a mixed marriage. His father was Jewish and his mother Christian-Orthodox. Although both his parents were atheists and lived under a Communist regime, he grew up knowing that he was Jewish and proud of his identity. David's book of bible stories included a collection of essays by a famous Kabbalist, and it was edited by a man whose writings he admired, whom he called "the King of Jews". David chose the chapter dealing with the famous biblical story of "The concubine of Gibeah". The biblical figure of Abraham held special significance for David. According to Jewish tradition, Abraham is regarded as the father of all converts to Judaism. David's strong urge to become Jewish and to be recognised as such by the religious community made a big impact on his parents.
