The book launch of The Amichai Windows at Tmol Shilshom cafe in Jerusalem attracted a standing room only crowd.
Most of the evening was in Hebrew but I gave a slide show in English. The program also featured Hebrew Literature Professor Ariel Hirschfeld of Hebrew University and Hana Amichai.
My thanks go out to so many people who made the evening possible including but not only Hana Amichai, David Ehrlich, Ariel Hirschfeld and Naama Shahar. And, of course, to Arieh Rudnick who took all of the photos and granted permission to share them.
Hope you’ll enjoy the photo show . . . !

“A poem is like a lullaby that you sing in order to calm yourself.”
