Jacqueline Kahanoff – Collection of Letters to Ephraim Broide – 1960s

Sixteen letters written by Egyptian-born Israeli essayist to Molad editor Ephraim Broide, between 1957 and 1967. Carbon copies of three replies by Broide are included, as well as a copy of a letter Broide wrote to her husband.
Kahanoff's letters, mostly in English, deal with essays Kahanoff sent for publication in Molad, including essays about Dimona, integration of Jews from Muslim countries in Israel, and Jean Gottman's book Megalopolis.
Egyptian born Jacqueline Kahanoff, (1917-1979), lived in Israel since the 1950s, wrote mostly about the West's condescension as to the East, arguing against the 'melting pot' approach of the Israeli estasblishment. Kahanoff believed that Israel's denial of its Levantine character, is one of the reasons for the hatred between the peoples of the region, and an obstacle to peace between Israel and its neighbors. Kahanoff was also a feminist, dealing widely with the plight of women in Arab society in particular and patriarchal, conservative societies in general. She died of cancer in 1979, and only years after her death did her ideas begin reemerging among Israeli intellectuals, bringing on an interest in her writings.
11 handwritten letters and 5 printed letters, signed. Various sizes and conditions. General condition: good.
