As per the writer Daniel Silva, Gabriel Allon is the Sabra (a Jewish who’s born in Palestine). Having been raised as Jewish, Allon’s first official language is German. Having been brought up in the secular home that’s situated in the Jezreel Valley, Gabriel Allon was not acquainted with Shabbat candles at all. He only came to know much about them when he was an adult. Throughout his whole series of books based on Gabriel Allon, the novelist has established that Gabriel Allon’s mother had managed to survive the grim Holocaust. The novels do not throw much a lot of light onto Allon’s father. The reader just knows that Allon’s father was brought up in the city of Munich, survived the holocaust like his mother and then died in a 6-day war.
