Chaim Icyk Bermant (1929 - 1998) was a prominent Anglo-Jewish journalist, author and wit. Born in Breslev, Latvia, he spent much of his childhood in Scotland. He was educated at Queen's Park Secondary School in Glasgow, Glasgow University, where he graduated in economics, and the London School of Economics. He contributed regularly to The Jewish Chronicle and occasionally to the national press, particularly The Observer. An Orthodox Jew and supporter of Israel, he was freely critical of both. He wrote several novels and non-fiction works, mostly on the quirks of British Jewish society.
