The project is about to conclude and will have its final session on Sunday, April 25 at Neve Tzedek’s Tazza cafe.
The final program, "Korim et Tel Aviv" (Reading Tel Aviv), will feature well-known personalities reading and singing about Tel Aviv. Among the participants are Nissim Calderon, Yair Garboz, Etgar Keret, Nurit Gretz, Dani Karavan and Danny Litani. The program will be hosted by Yuval Meskin, and will be broadcast live on Reshet Bet from 9 p.m.
On Wednesday, April 28, President Shimon Peres will host Jewish and Arab poets and writers to discuss literary creativity as a cultural bridge. ‘Language Neighbors’ will be the fifth in a series of meetings of Israel’s literati at Beit Hanassi.
Participants will include Eli Amir, Nidaa Khoury, Ronny Somek, Prof. Naim Araidi, Yael Nahari, and of course, Peres, who is known for his love of literature and for his efforts to narrow social, cultural and economic gaps between Arabs and Jews.
