  1. I am looking for a letter ( in Hebrew ) that Daliah Ravikovitch wrote to Ehud Olmert when he still was the mayor of Jerusalem. It is incredible in its validity today and the level of prose of DR. I wish it could be presented here if someone could do it justice with a proper english translation. It appeared in Ha’aretz this year ( somwhere between June and September in the weeken Musaf ). The biggest difficulty I had, thinking about translation, is , how one translates accurately the Hebrew slang idiom : “katan aleicha” .

  2. Marian: I might be able to help though only indirectly. Is the phrase katan aleicha in the letter published in Haaretz? I ask because I’ll put yr query out to some Hebrew langugage bloggers I know who might be able to do a search for it in Haaretz’s online site. If you can remember any specific phrase in the article or its precise title that would help in the online site search.

    You might also try Chana Bloch or Chana Kronfeld who are referred to in the post above. You could do a Google search for their contact info. They both are professors & should be listed online at their particular universities. They are both academic experts in Rabikovitch & prob. would know what you’re looking for.

    When/If you find the article I’d be willing to help w. the translation but perhaps you could do it yourself as your Hebrew sounds like it must be pretty good.

    Good luck.
