MKs make their book recommendations for Hebrew Book Week

Lawmakers kicked off Hebrew Book Week by making recommendations Wednesday.

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein recommended a book of Haim Nachman Bialik’s poems.

"I knew Bialik’s works before I knew how to read Hebrew and before I knew he was considered the ‘national poet.’ When I was behind the Iron Curtain, I thirstily drank any material connected to Hebrew culture, and that is how I was exposed to translations of his writing," Edelstein recalled.
