News and Events

We are thrilled to share that Ilana Rudashevski's outstanding novel “Taska” won the prestigious Sapir prize for a debut novel!

From the Jury’s decision: "[Rudashevski] creates a unique world in its events as well as in its language, between an architectural language and the unique Hebrew of immigrants from the former Soviet Union... The book looks with fresh and witty eyes at the beauty and pain of this place, about immigration, the feelings of mission and pioneering, the tireless ideology, and the weight of history in it"
