was he a levy
It’s interesting to compare this wth Leonard Cohen, a Cohen after all, who began as an acclaimed poet and turned to song.
Shir uMeshorer are from the same root letters. Not like in English
roy and leora
I wonder if he liked to sing
I prayed in the synagogue in Talpiot , where Agnon prayed. He did not sing a lot.
Interesting that his acceptance speech is about Song- Shira and yet the Nobel prize was given to him for his stories about the Jewish life
Stories - Sipurim
My parents had apartment in East Talpiot, a newer area, from 1970’s which looked east, right on the green line . Many Jewish organizations my parents belonged to sent groups to visit their large terrace looking out over the hills, even before Hass Promenade I believe was built.
He said .. as he doesn't sing, he was blessed in writing songs, poetry.

agnon was sad to be living on a street named for Klausner
Also Israel is not as grand as the countries from which the settlers emigrated.
Not The Raven, No napping, tapping or rapping!
I assumed that Agnon’s sign was to discourage unexpected visitors on Shabbat.
Al Ta-shbitu is a double negative .. in my opinion, he invites people to visit on the shabbat
Double negative in hebrew is still negative. very different from English — and confusing for those of us who live in English.
My parents had tea at the little Arab village across green line from them. Years later, a couple of terrorists came from that village into E.Talpiot.
tashbitu means to destroy (as in tashbitu hametz, destroy leaven). contemporary hebrew: about strike.
As a good story it reaches all ages and has a lot of layered meanings.
as an israeli .. in this context, to accept Rachel's comment that Agnon was playing with the words, he was inviting people to come and visit on the Shabbat .. and that's the beauty of it .. and that's why the sign is so famous .. there is no point to mention it otherwise
To me it is a story of persistence.
I could not believe when the Han put on a play of Tehila!
How do we get on the “email list?” I have not gotten any emails. Thanks
Tehila can also be a psalm in Female (nekeva)
There is no email list .. but Rachel is responding to individual requests at KORAZIM@gamil.com
I also saw the play last year. They did it in English.
also Aiyshet Chayl
The English translation is wrong. Should read She was Good. She was Wise. She was Meek. She was …...
sound no picture-new share
Randi and/or Elizabeth - would you please list your emails for those who would like to receive emails about these sessions. Thanks

To be clear — whose text is it?

Todah rabah once again.
was a gift!
Just saying לעדני הנפש .. Recited on Aljazeera, for her honest and bold poetry, in a special Time magazine issue, The 2006 Time 100, under the heading, "Heroes and Pioneers," Dr. Wafa Sultan, born and raised a Muslim near Damascus, now a psychiatrist living in LA, in 2006 was selected by the magazine as one of the most influencial people in the world; here is one of her poems:"The Jews have come from the tragedy [the Holocaust] and forced the world to respect them, with their knowledge, not with their terror, with their work, not with their crying and yelling. We have not seen a single Jew blow himself up in a German restaurant. We have not seen a single Jew destroy a church. We have not seen a single Jew protest by killing people. Only the Muslims defend their beliefs by burning down churches, killing people and destroying embassies. This path will not yield any results. The Muslims must ask themselves what they can do for humankind, before they demand that humankind respect them."--Dr. Wafa Sultan: C
