My Story
I was brought up in a traditional Jewish household and went to a Jewish school and an Orthodox Synagogue. I believed in the biblical account of creation until I learned about evolution in my second to last year of high school. I stopped believing in a god when I was about 18/19 years old. I have come out to my family and friends and now everyone after writing An Atheist Album. If you think you might be an atheist but are afraid, don’t worry. Life is just as wonderful as before (and in many ways more) and there is a lovely community that can support you. Some books that helped me are Letter to a Christian Nation and ‘The End of Faith by Sam Harris. ‘The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.  God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens and countless YouTube videos where they speak.
