Israel Prize recipient, songwriter and poet

Ehud Manor was one of Israel's best known and loved figures.

He was a recipient of the Israel Prize, Israel's most prestigious award.
Manor was a prolific songwriter, poet, translator and radio and TV personality.
He wrote the lyrics to more than one thousand songs, including "Bashana Haba'a" and"Ein Li Eretz Acheret".
He also wrote the Hebrew words for the Yardena Arazi collection"Neshama Tso'anit - Gypsy Soul".
As well, Manor was an acclaimed translator of theatre plays
(Shakespeare, Harold Pinter, Tennessee Williams)
and musicals (Hair, Grease, West Side Story, Les Miserables and Oliver).
Born in Binyamina, Israel in 1941, he passed away suddenly and tragically on Tuesday April 12, 2005.
Ehud Manor was a mentor to Hebrew and is sadly missed by its publisher, Aura Levin Lipski.
In July 2005 a studio at Israel Radio's Reshet Gimel was dedicated in honour of the late Ehud Manor.
