Three handwritten letters sent by the poet Yehuda Amichai, between the years 1960-1974.
The first letter, dated 1960, was sent to the poet Avraham Broides, requesting that the latter transfer his request for a grant to The Fund for Encouraging Original Literary Works, so that he could complete a novel called "HaNekama," probably an earlier version of "Lo Achshav Lo MiKan," published in 1963.
The second letter, dated December 1963, was sent to the Hebrew Writers Association in Israel, but referred to The Lamdan Prize Foundation, and contained another request for a financial grant for the writing of a novel. The letter was written shortly after the publication of "Lo Achshav Lo MiMan," but Amichai did not publish another novel until "Mi Yitneni Malon," in 1971.
The third letter, dated 1964, was sent to Dov Chomsky, the secretary-general of the Author's Association, requesting help in collecting a debt from a school in Jerusalem, where Amichai taught. Amichai mentions in the letter a document, which should have boon attached to the the letter, but the document is missing.
Size and condition vary. One letter is in fair condition, with stains, the other two are in good condition with slight tears in the margins. All three letters have filing holes.
"The photo at the display window, Yehuda Amichai (part of the novel 'Skull on the Water,' soon to be published)."
Thirteen typewritten pages, a carbon copy with many handwritten corrections and changes, eventually published as the sixth chapter of Amichai's novel Lo MeAchshav Lo MiKan (Not of this Time, Not of this Place), published in 1963 (pages 35-46).
Some of the corrections are in Amichai's handwriting, others are in Ephraim Broide's handwriting. Broide was the editor of literary periodical Molad, and received the chapter for publication. This draft is different in many details from the final version of the chapter in the novel.
At the time the chapter was written, Amichai's working title for the novel was "Skull on the Water," the name deriving from a Mishna in Pirke Avot which is quoted on the book's half title page (see Hebrew). Eventually Amichai decided to call the novel Not of this Time, Not of this Place.
Written in the first person, this poetic novel is a juxtaposition of two possible, parallel realities, unravelling simultaneously. Yoel arrived in Palestine as child, joined the Palmach and fought in the 1948 War of Independence. In one of the parallel stories he returns to his hometown in Germany to avenge the death of a girl he loved who was murdered in the holocaust, while in the parallel story, he remains in Jerusalem, to cope with his unsuccessful and search for a new love.
13 pages, carbon copy of the period. Good condition, creases, few stains, slight damage to last pages.

Review by Lea Goldberg of J.D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey, published in 1961. Twelve typewritten pages with handwritten notes and corrections, by Goldberg and Ephraim Broide, editor of Molad. Two of the pages feature full paragraphs in Goldberg's handwriting.
The review is titled BeShivhei HaGveret HaShmena (In Praise of the Fat Lady). Goldberg is referring to a story Zooey heard from their brother Seymour who used to tell him to shine his shoes before a live radio show. When Zooey pointed out that nobody sees his shoes on the radio, Seymour told him to do it for the 'Fat Lady,' an imaginary, lonely listener who deserves his best. Goldberg uses the fat lady as her starting point, sharply criticizing Salinger's prose and materials, comparing him, unfavorably to her preferred authors - Dostoyevsky, Thomas Mann, Nabokov, Herman Broch and others. The essay underlines the gap between Salinger's world, and the generation and culture it represents, and Goldberg's world.
The final version of the essay appears in a book of Goldberg's collected essays Mador UMeever - Bchinot UTeamim BaSifrut Haklalit, Sifriyat Hapoalim, 1977.

Kahanoff was also a feminist, dealing widely with the plight of women in Arab society in particular and patriarchal, conservative societies in general.

The prize was awarded to Zohar Levy, the leader of the group, after it was chosen as best band of the year by Yedioth Ahronoth.
Kinor David was considered the most prestigious arts and culture award in Israel in the 1960's and 1970s. It was awarded starting in 1964. Categories included film, music, radio and TV, theatre and dance.
The winners were determined by a poll conducted among the paper's readers weighted with another poll conducted among professionals in each field.
Aharit Hayamim is considered one of the first and most important rock groups in Israel, and its music is still influential and successful today. The band was founded in 1971 by Zohat Levy, a drummer who played with the High Windows and HaShlosharim, and composed all the songs for Hanoch Levin's controversial play Malkat Ambatya. He was joined by veterans of army troupes (Eli Magen who was also with Levy in Kef HaTikva HaTova, and Miri Aloni, both from LAhakat HaNahal) as well as rock musicians (aby Shoshan of HaShokolada nad ythe Israeli version of " Hair", and Yitzhak Klepter of The Churchills and HaSignonot).

The band combined serious texts by established poets - such as Hanoch Levin, Amos Kenan, Dalia Ravikovitch and others - with rock music influenced by psychedelia and progressive rock.

Despite critical acclaim the group never enjoyed commercial success, and was disbanded in the very same year, also due to differences between band members.

In the 1980s, Black Panthers' activist Kochavi Shemesh opened a bar on Tel Aviv's Dizengoff Street called "Red Bar." When he suggested to Danny Ben Yisrael to stage a show at the bar, Ben Yisrael suggested a show called "the Eshkenazi Revolution." Shemesh loved the idea, and Ben Yisrael promptly came up with a Yiddish show of songs and sketches, featuring Nira Rabinovitch, Miriam Fuchs, (remembered from the Chibuteru TV campaign), and legendary actor Raphael Klatchkin, already in his seventies. Ben Yisrael hoped to produce an LP of the show's songs, but had money for the production of only two tracks - Hu Achal Ota / Hot er Gegesen - featured here, half in Hebrew half in Yiddish, and a Yiddish version of the Israeli Medirranean Style Hit "HaMeantezet," which was never released.
This track was never released on an LP or CD.
The single is pressed on both sides, with identical versions of the song. The labels, written with a marker, read: "HaMahapecha Ha'Eshkenazit, Danny Ben Yisrael."
Ben Yisrael served as a musician in the Northern Command Troupe. He is mostly remembered and appreciated for his independently-produced, groundbreaking, psychedelic 1970 album "Chantarish Shalosh Va'Reva." A commercial failure at the time, now considered a landmark.

Original Artwork from the first comic book of the Uri On series, the Israeli superhero, alongside a complete set of the four comic books, all that's been published. The publisher is D.N.H. Israel Comics (in the first issue I.C. Israel Comics), 1987. Plot, painting, color and editing: Michael Netzer.
Uri On was the second attempt to create an Israeli superhero. The first was Uri Fink's Sabraman (1978), but the Uri On series - as opposed to Saberman, was printed in full color, marking him as the first local superhero in color.
Michael Netzer was born in Detroit, Michigan, as Michael Nasser, to parents of Druze Lebanese origin. In the 1970s he gained recognition for his work for DC Comics and Marvel Comics. He later embarked on a spiritual journey that led him back to Lebanon, where he witnessed the Israeli invasion of 1982. Nasser fleed to Israel, converted to Judaism, and moved to the West Bank settlement of Ofra where he married and raised a family.
Uri On was conceived during a meeting between Netzer and Uri Orbach - the radio personality who later became right wing politician and served as Minister in the Israeli government, until his death in 2015. Orbach came up with the name of Uri On. The strip was published at the beginning of a peek in comic book popularity in Israel, and was later exhibited in the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, together with works by artists such as Dudu Geva, Uri Fink and others.
Offered here is an original illustration of the last page of the first book of the series, a pre-colored version of the page. _x000B_The story tells of an Ultra Orthodox scientist, professor Avrahami - who appears on the last page as well - and features scenes in the Western Wall.

The duck carries a torn flag with a red heart, and the background has a burning city. The title: Adayin Optimi (Still Optimistic).

Seven comic books published by Israeli publishers "Queen Comics," in the 1980s. Two Superman issues - no.3, 4, vol. D; two Spiderman issues - no. 3, vol. C. and no. 4, vol. A; one issue of The Incredible Hulk - no. 3, vol. C; two issues of Star Wars - no. 3, 4, vol. B.
Queen Comics' first publications were probably in 1986. These were the first to introduce to the Israeli public American comic books' superheroes in color. Queen Comics were the first to publish Star Wars and Star Trek, in comic book format. Quality-wise, the publications were somewhat sloppy, and the choice of materials wasn't consistent or reasonable. One such example is that on the cover of the Superman issues, his 'S' is printed inverse.
Apparently about thirty comic books were published by Queen Comics until it ceased activity.

Molidor fabric sheet deisgned by Roji Ben Yossef. The sheet was taken from a dress. Wide stripes in purple, pink and orange.
Rojy Ben Yoseph was born in Bulgaria and immigrated with her family to Israel in 1948. Her father founded an undergarments company, and Rojy, who saw the future in export, searched for materials for an original collection. One day a marketing salesman for a small factory in Nahariya - Moller Textile - arrived with samples of towel fabrics. Ben Yoseph immediately recognized the potential of the cheap, simple fabric, and since Moller Textile was in financial difficulties, they agreed to carry out unorthodox experiments and produce a range of loud colored fabrics. Ben Yoseph was looking for colors that could represent the landscape, climate and human spirit of Israel and its heterogonous society, and eventually chose strong colors: black, orange, turquoise and yellow.
Ben Yoseph 's designs were extremely popular both in Israel high society and abroad, and Rikma became one of the most important and successful fashion designers in Israel. It later produced Kaffiyah fabric dresses, and a collection inspired by Talit fabrics. Ben Yoseph cooperated with artists such as Ruth Tzarfati Shternshus and Ziona Shimshi.

Seven publications by and about Shurat HaMitnadvim, late 1950s. For a detailed list of the publications please see Hebrew description.
At first Shurat HaMitnadvim ("Line of Volunteers") was founded as a non-political charity based civic association, helping new immigrants and supporting social change, but soon focused on fighting corruption and nepotism, rampant in the Israeli political establishment._x000B_Its founders included Elyakim HaEtzni (later a settler activist and MK), Hanan Rapopport, Yeshayahu Leibowitz, future president Ephraim Katzir, future MK and minister Amnon Rubinstein, and poet Yitzhak Shalev (father of writers Meir Shalev and Zruya Shalev).
In 1955 the association published a booklet titled Sakana Orevet MiBifnim (Danger Lurks from Within), accusing David Ben-Gurion's son, Amos Ben-Gurion, who served as deputy police commissioner, of ordering to halt a criminal investigation involving his friend Shayke Yarkoni, husband of popular singer Yaffa Yarkoni. The accusation was that Yarkoni and his associates used Jewish Agency funds in a scam allowing them to pocket huge sums by inflating costs of tourism equipment.
Amos Ben-Gurion sued Shurat HaMitnadvim for libel; Shmuel Tamir, an attorney at the Kastner trial, represented the association. Police commissioner Yeheskel Sahar was proven to have given a false testimony, but still the court ruled in favor of Ben-Gurion, ordering the association to pay an unprecedented sum in reparations. This, in turn, led to the huge crises in the association and the halting of most its activities, while the appeal was being heard in the Supreme Court._x000B_The Supreme Court accepted most of the association's claims, and drastically cut the amount of reparations - ordering Ben-Gurion to return the sums already paid with interest. The Justices slammed Ben-Gurion and Sahar, as well as the judges of the District Court. Sahar was charged and found guilty for perjury.

The copy includes a circular notice from 1963 from an organization named "Keren Haadam - Igud Bnei Adam LeMaan HaAdam," with this particular letter addressed to Yitzhak Rafael, deputy Health Minister at the time. The letter calls on its readers to "read through these 99 pages in your hands… this isn't the story of Romek but the unlikely story of today's reality here and now… Romek's High Court of Justice documents are a stunning indictment against the way law and order are run in this country… this is a mine under our very feet…"
Reuven (Romek) Greenberg was a Lehi member active in the occupation of Dir Yassin, and was the one who placed a flag of Israel on the home of the village's Mukhtar. Romek was among those who assisted the escape of Geulah Cohen from British jail, and helped the assassins of Swedish Count Folke Bernadotte escape to Tel Aviv. Greenberg defended the Arabs of Abu Gosh after the 1948 war, supported Malchiel Gruenwald during the Kastner Trial and was involved in the activities of "Shurat HaMitnadvim," (see previous item) that was active in exposing corruption.

* Eighteen page handwritten article, describing the days he spent with Sharon, the Um Katef battle moves, and Sharon's personality, that impressed him deeply. At the conclusion of the article, Kapelyuk relates that after the victory "we sat next to an Egyptian trench. 'To tell the truth,' Arik said in a hoarse voice, almost in a whisper - my mood isn't good after seeing this 'valley of death'. An hour earlier he led the troops to victory… called on them vigorously to destroy the enemy. From that moment on I consider myself one of Arik Sharon's admirers." This article is presented in two versions - one consisting of 18 handwritten pages with many corrections, and a 14 page version, missing the first page, a carbon copy with corrections. The article was eventually published in Maariv, on June 23rd, 1967.
