Lot Number 2

Pshita – Humoristic Literary Review edited by Meir Wieseltier, Yona Wollach, Yair Hurwitz and others, First Issue, 1967

First issue of "Pshita - Useful Literary Review For All," edited by Meir Wieseltier with Yona Wollach, Yair Hurvitz and others. The review was published in 1967, immediately following the Six-Day War, featuring wild, biting humor. It featured a poem by Wieseltier, one by Wallach (Lo Lebazbez Et Chodesh May), as well as a prose piece, "A Class in History," by Abraham Heffner, and many more satirical and humoristic pieces, as well as illustrations. The cover features a portrait incorporating Michaelangelo's Moses with Moshe Dayan and Rabbi Shlomo Goren. The editorial states that "Pshita's first assumption is common to all successful Hebrew publications… that the readers are insensitive idiots that will purchase anything offered as long as one demands payment in cash…
Not in National Library, or in other libraries in Israel.
