We remember
On Monday, January 28, exactly one year since national poet Haim Guri died, a young generation of local poets will dedicate a special evening to his memory. Guri, who is primarily identified with the Palmah generation and the War of Independence, was also a proud Jerusalemite. Despite being totally secular, he found a common language with the young group of “Mashiv haruah” poets, all religious and mostly residents of settlements in Gush Etzion.

Guri identified with the Left side of the political map. Nevertheless, he was capable of holding a genuine dialogue with this generation of young writers and poets and became, over the past few years, quite close to them, bridging their the differences.
