Mirik Snir

Mirik Snir is a writer, poet and lecturer who  was born in 1948 and raised on a Kibbutz. Today she is the  mother of nine children and grandmother to thirteen,  the recipient of the Prime Minister Prize, the Zeev Prize, and the Israeli Museum Prize.

Snir's philosophy of "natural reading" has led to the publishication of more than 90 books all of which are still in print. Many of her books have been translated into English including The Day You Were Born  which is now available in the US.

Mrs. Snir devotes much of her time to recounting Biblical stories to children and strengthening their connections to their heritage.. She has also translated the nearly forgotten stories and poems of Kadia Molodovsky from their original Yiddish.
