Today was the 141st birthday of Israel's national poet, Haim Nachman Bialik.
Meitar Library had a special story hour followed by a coloring session on the subject.
I took Eyal and Libby.
Libby enjoyed it because she had just learned to sing Bialik's songs in her pre-kindergarten class.
Even today's Google doodle was dedicated to Bialik's poem, Ken Latsipor (Bird's Nest).
See the words and translation here, with a very interesting "Revisiting Bialik: A Radical Mizrahi Reading of the Jewish National Poet."
