HOW do you get a five year old in 1960 Jerusalem to eat his vegetables?
WHY did my mother not eat anything when the 1948 siege was finally lifted from Jerusalem?
WHAT did my great-grandfather do on his death-bed, that shocked the British Consul?

As an author, Gil has published three best-selling novels, all related in different ways, to his family’s colorful history, exposing with humor and emotion a Jerusalem of his childhood. The fourth, titled
Twenty Four Doors‘, was published in April 2015 and hit the top of the national bestseller list. Recently, one of his memoirs called ‘Candies from Heaven‘ was published in English and Chinese.
