About the Author
Abraham Regelson, the renowned Hebrew poet, was born in Russia in 1896, and immigrated to the US with his parents in 1905. He studied in the heder, yeshiva and public schools in New York’s lower East Side. Employed as a librarian and Hebrew teacher in New York and Cleveland Hebrew schools, at the same time he wrote poetry, essays, articles and legends which were printed in various publications. He moved with his family to early Jewish Palestine in 1933, where he was employed on the staff of the Hebrew daily, Davar. There he co-founded the paper’s children’s supplement, where the classic Dolls’ Journey to Eretz-Israel was first published in installments. After three years he returned to New York, where he earned his living by writing for the Yiddish press. A master of Hebrew, English and Yiddish, his poetry and prose in all three languages was published in both America and Israel. In 1949 he settled permanently in Israel, where he worked on the staff of the daily newspaper Al HaMishmar, and as an editor of the publishing house, Am Oved. Author of several volumes of poetry, essays and children’s books, he has also translated into Hebrew works by Milton, Blake, Melville and others. Winner of the prestigious Brenner (1962) and Bialik (1972) Literature Prizes in Israel, he was also awarded the Neumann Prize by the Hebrew Department of NYU in 1976 for his contribution to Hebrew literature. He died in 1981.
