Zeev Geizel performs Shainsky's songs in Hebrew
As any other gifted person, Zeev Geizel managed to find glory in absolutely different fields. He taught basics of maths to the author of the article. Emigrants from CIS remember the virtues of Geizel being a councilor of Binyamin Netanyahu in absorption matters. Israeli culture is next to come. To be more exact - its particular layer, i.e. songs for children.
A former child, I won't sin against the truth when I say that composer Vladimir Shainsky and his songs belong to us, to our childhood. Due to translation efforts of Zeev Geizel, Hebrew-speaking kids will soon sing that, to regret, birthday is only once a year. So what? "If you want - a tale will come true" - a Vienna dramatist Teodor Gertsl used to say.
An exhibition of posters and film reels on the Jewish themes has opened in the Small gallery of Jewish University in Jerusalem (on Skopus Mountain). Materials of the exhibition "Nation of film" are taken from the located in Jerusalem Archives of Jewish cinema named after Steven Spielberg. An archives' specialist Gilel Traster supervises the exhibition.
