Meet The Israeli Author, an elective course for Juniors that is unique to MTA, began on Wednesday, October 17th. Spearheaded by award-winning instructor Ms. Liora Haibi, the course provides a priceless opportunity for talmidim to be mentored by renowned Israeli author Chana Bat Shachar. Throughout the year, talmidim develop their Hebrew language and creative writing skills and have weekly Skype sessions with Chana to hone their writing. The course culminates with talmidim publishing a Hebrew literature journal of their own original stories, which is archived in the National Library of Israel and the circulation room of Hebrew University. Seniors who participated in the course last year were presented with their journals at this year’s kick-off and Juniors currently enrolled in the course had their first Skype session with Chana and are excited to get started on their literary works.
