Rosh Hashanah

Starting from the beginning

Rivka Miriam and Bilha Ben-Eliyahu

Bilha Ben Eliyahu talks with the writer Rivka Miriam about “Beginnings”: about childhood in Jerusalem, about the beginning of writing, about characters from Genesis who are “very aged” – present here and now, in daily life at this time, about the birth of new beginnings from endings and crises, about melody, about laughter, and about love.


Bilha Ben-Eliyahu is a lecturer in literature at the Kerem Institute, David Yellin College, and Efrata College. 

Rivka Miriam is an Israeli poet, novelist and painter.
