It’s interesting to compare this wth Leonard Cohen, a Cohen after all, who began as an acclaimed poet and turned to song.
Tova Shimon
54:08
Shir uMeshorer are from the same root letters. Not like in English
roy and leora

Tova Shimon
57:59
I prayed in the synagogue in Talpiot , where Agnon prayed. He did not sing a lot.
Adam Wishkovsky
59:11
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

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

I assumed that Agnon’s sign was to discourage unexpected visitors on Shabbat.
Michael Kaftor
01:25:38
Al Ta-shbitu is a double negative .. in my opinion, he invites people to visit on the shabbat
Kitty Hoffman
01:27:24
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.
Baruch Frydman-Kohl
01:27:53
tashbitu means to destroy (as in tashbitu hametz, destroy leaven). contemporary hebrew: about strike.
Baruch Frydman-Kohl
01:28:02
labor strike
Tova Shimon
01:28:57
As a good story it reaches all ages and has a lot of layered meanings.
Michael Kaftor
01:29:36
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
Violet
01:31:57
To me it is a story of persistence.
Tova Shimon
01:34:00
I could not believe when the Han put on a play of Tehila!
stanleykay

Tova Shimon

Tehila can also be a psalm in Female (nekeva)
Michael Kaftor
01:35:52

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
