Day-88-Penpositive Reading Campaign-A Drunk, Embroiled Will; By the Israeli Poet Zelda

ZeldaZelda Schneersohn Mishkovsky (June 20, 1914 – April 30, 1984) widely known as Zelda, was an Israeli poet. She received three awards for her published works. Penai (Free Time), her first collection of poetry, was published in 1967.

With its emotive and contemplative images drawn from the world of Jewish mysticism, Hasidism, and Russian fairy tales, this collection established her reputation in the literary world. Zelda attended a religious school for girls in British Palestine, and then studied at the Teachers’ College of the Mizrachi movement.

After graduating in 1932, she moved to Tel Aviv and then to Haifa, where she taught until her return to Jerusalem in 1935.
