See "The Modern Hebrew Poem Itself," Edited by Stanley Burnshaw, T. Carmi, and Ezra Spicehandler, in which Hebrew poetry is presented without reference to the background of the poet. The poem should stand by itself, they say, considering the biography not an elucidiation but a barrier to understanding the poem.
Dorothea Dorenz
01:03:23
part of the translation is missing in English
Nitza Tsur
01:05:17
The photo is of children in a bomb shelter - not an ordinary children house.

Rachel, did you grow up on a Kibbutz?
Leslie Schaeffer
01:20:29
The first paragraph is evocative of Dylan Thomas’s Fern Hill
Gail Levine
01:22:07
I recommend Melford Spiro's study of children growing up on the early kibbutzim-Gail
Barbara Taragan
01:23:13
Also Bruno Bettleheim’s book “Children of the Dream”
Elaine H
01:23:40
Excelllent book.
Dorothea Dorenz
01:24:08
And yet the kibbutz children became the most accomplished officers in the Israeli army.
Joan Borkow
01:25:07
“Growing Up Below Sea Level” by Rachel Biale is a very nice book about kibbutz childhood.
Claudia
01:25:12

Moon River- so poignant Thank you
Linda Henry Goodman

מקסים
Bonniekossoff
01:48:18
Translation can be “puking my guts”
Jon Tepper in Tucson, AZ
01:50:57
the song Moon River is quite appropriate to accompany many of these poems. the lyrics by the great Johnny Mercer is thought to be descriptive of his youthful yearning to explore the wide world beyond the confines of his native small town in the Southern US.
Mj Levison
01:51:58
the Hebrew is not in the source sheets please send it in email
Bonniekossoff

YIVO is offering classes
Elaine H
02:22:03
Lived in Montreal for four years when my youngest was 1-2. I absorbed whatever Yiddish I know from my extended family speaking it so that we children wouldn't understand.
Fredi
02:22:35
watch Shtissel. the ultra orthodox are preserving Yiddish
Taibel
02:23:18
also [national] yiddish book center, people who feel ‘other’ where they are growing up are finding transalted yiddish literature
Etty
02:24:54
Rachel - I agree with your mother.
Taibel
02:24:56

Considering the problems in Europe and considering the right wing trends in Israel (e.g. the issues with the occupation) I believe the US remains the best place to be!

It isn’t I fear
Elaine H
02:36:30
Canada has rising antisemitism too but not like the US.
A Ginsburg
02:36:36
Canada has its own anti-Semitism and real problems
Cristyne Porile
02:37:31
Proud Boys actually originated in Canada and came to the US from there
Florence Chapman
02:38:30
Canada has designated them a terrorist group. Not America
Suzie Lampert

nily
