Born in Newburgh, New York, Seth Clyman moved to Israel with his family at the age of fourteen. He is a proud father of eight and grandfather of more. Seth is a community builder who has coordinated multimilliondollar expansion projects for educational institutions in Jerusalem. He is an active member of his community of Neve Yaakov, scene of the events that take place in Touching the World of Angels. He was an originator of the Neighborhood Development Committee, which meets with municipal representatives to implement projects vital to community needs. He is also a gabbai (in-house coordinator) for his synagogue. Following the crib death of his daughter, Seth was occasionally asked to speak with other parents who had experienced similar loss. He eventually decided to put his thoughts and insights on paper to help bereaved parents channel their pain and find new sources of strength. After five years, his first book was born. Seth lives with his wife Ellen in Jerusalem.
