Did Rachel also say Volozhin? or did I just mishear.

"Matmid" is the name of El Al's frequent flyer program. I suspect they weren't thinking of Bialik.

Right
Erica Sokoloff

Wish I could use my Matmid points:(
Liba

Fredi

Studious student...
Violet Zeitlin
03:30:43
He wrote a book of midrash.
Ed Grossman
03:32:14
Print out the PDF version, not the Word document.
sally m
03:33:57
who composed the music for the song El Hatzipor ?
Ed Grossman
03:35:42
For me the English translation doesn't do any justice to the musical and poetic character of the Hebrew in the rhythms and the rhymes, even within the stanzas. Hamatmid is an epic poem for an early poet.
Ed Grossman

Heather Silverman

That’s the trouble with reading poetry in translation. It’s a pale imitation
Ed Grossman

Also you can continue to use today's link for future meetings.
Sarah Elpern
03:40:40
Thank you for a wonderful class. I'm not Israeli but as a kid in Habonim, Bialik was read to us on Tisha Ba'av. I haven't thought about him since, so Shulamit's comments hit home. Thank you.. See you Thursday.
Steven Bekhor
03:42:57
Bialik, realist or idealist or somewhere in between?
Frieda Robins
03:44:54
please tell us about his love life
Ed Grossman
03:48:39
And wasn't Bialik also a newspaper reporter as well around the time of Kishinev?
Vicky
03:49:09
As an Israeli who also studied Bialik in HS, I can attest to the renewed pleasure of reading and revisiting his poetry. Especially, because I'm using my HS textbook (I believe Israelis know which one I'm talking about ).
Vicky
03:49:58
Rachel, can you say a few words about his personal life
Nitza Tsur
03:52:07
Ira Yan
Ed Grossman
03:59:47
Didn't Bialik make a short trip to Palestine earlier (and returning to Odessa) before he made Aliyah? Palestine was rather backwards compared to Odessa...
Yael Gott

My experience with Orthodox and Chabad is that they know the Tanach inside out.
