David Kovacs


Throughout much of David's 40-year career writing award-winning videos, films and plays, he and his wife Patty have also been involved in interfaith dialogue, and are two of the founders of the Chicago Interfaith Family School. With Leaps of Faiths, his work comes full circle to one of his first scriptwriting jobs - staff writer for the Emmy-winning children's program The Magic Door, produced by WBBM-TV and the Chicago Board of Rabbis. He's always been fascinated by how the media, spirituality and learning can intersect in ways that intrigue and involve audiences, and is excited to take that journey a giant step further with this exploration into the joys, challenges and mysteries of interfaith marriage.
