Rubinlicht Awards and Performance by Evgeny Kissin

Two important events took place at the Tel Aviv Yiddish center Leyvik House: the annual Rubinlicht Award ceremony on December 17 and an online live performance by the world renowned pianist Evgeny Kissin, who recited his Yiddish poems on December 21.

The Anna and Leib Rubinlicht Foundation Award was founded in 1986. Its current laureates are the linguist Dr. Ghil’ad Zuckermann, for his research on the profound influence of Yiddish on modern Hebrew, and Shoshana Kroitero, for her active volunteer work in organizing various events at the Leyvik House.
