– Rabindranath Tagore

What People Are Saying
“Encounters’s Poetry Tour was truly original and a fascinating exploration of the works and lives of Lea Goldberg, Yona Wallach, and Dahlia Ravikovitch. I found the tour to be equally appropriate for both Israeli poetry aficionados and people who never heard of these three women before. Ilyll’s expert knowledge brought these women’s exploration of love alive on the streets of Tel Aviv.”
