Granta Israel Explores Themes Of Borderlines And Wanderings

This summer of 2014/5774, unity within Israel in the war against terror prevailed, almost tangible. The movement beyond personal boundaries, and the outpouring of caring, shared responsibilities and actions, are hopeful signs of our society's capacity for love and tolerance.

Gained In Translation

"Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity," wrote poet Yehuda Amichai." Last week, contemporary Israeli writers and translated-into-Hebrew international writers sailed into the Fourth International Writers Festival in Jerusalem for conversations, encounters, music and films that were articulate, bracing, confrontational, moving and at times inspirational.
