A Room of His Own: A Special Event Inspired by Author Haim Hazaz

A Room of His Own: A Special Event Inspired by Author Haim Hazaz

Tuesday 22.6
De Botton Auditorium, Mishkenot Sha'ananim Cultural Center

On the occasion of the inauguration of the Haim Hazaz Room at Mishkenot Sha'ananim, we will hold an event that illustrates the special character of the first Israel Prize for Literature laureate and one of the greatest Hebrew writers of all time. People from all walks of life, from renowned leaders, writers, and intellectuals to downtrodden workers—the same human mosaic that Hazaz depicted so wonderfully in words—have been hosted in this room.

Through readings of passages from books and other texts, rare recordings, and archival materials, we will explore the fascinating figure of Haim Hazaz, an exemplary Hebrew writer.

Speakers: Ronny Someck, Dr. Gil Weisblei

Readings and vocals: Moni Moshonov, Micha Selektar, Ola Schur Selektar, Nathan Slor, Raz Shmueli

Piano: Nadav Rubinstein
