Chaim Nachman Bialik & Dr. Schmarja Levine Received Thenthusiastically in Palestine


Chaim Nachman Bialik, the Hebrew Poet Laureate, and Dr. Schmarja Levine were very enthusiastically received upon their arrival in Palestine. There was a public reception given them by the population, and there was much rejoicing over the fact that the national poet had come to make his home in the Jewish homeland. With Bialik and Dr. Levine came Dr. Jacob Kliatzkin.

It is the intention of Bialik to establish in Jerusalem a Hebrew publishing house which would act as the center of Hebrew literature throughout the world.
