Israel Prize laureate Aharon Megged, one of the country’s most prolific literary giants, died Wednesday in Tel Aviv at age 95.

Born in Wloclawek, Poland, as Aharon Greenberg, Megged was brought by his parents to British Mandate Palestine when he was six years old. The family settled in Ra’anana, which was then a village, and his father became the first teacher there.
