Like so many interesting and important events, Kisufim, the biennial conference for local and international Jewish writers, was born incidentally.

Hava Pinhas-Cohen, a Jerusalem poet and translator who is the founder and artistic director of Kisufim, recalls that for years, in several encounters with Jewish writers abroad, she heard their frustration over remaining unknown to Israeli readers – and not only as a result of the language barrier. Having founded Dimuy, the first literary review to open its pages to promising young and religious Israeli writers, mostly poets, in the 1980s, she realized that a gap existed between Israeli writers and their Jewish counterparts in the Diaspora and that it somehow had to be filled.
