Alexander wasraised in a Jewish home in a London slum. Nearly 77 now, he became obsessed with death at the age of 11 after seeing his deceased father in a coffin in the family's living room. He later became deeply involved in practicing spiritualism.
Alexander and his wife moved to the United States in the early 1960s and converted to Christianity. His crusade against his former practices has taken him to a dozen countries and every state except Rhode Island.
