In an impressive ceremony, Prof. Ada Aharoni received the prestigious
“Hebrew Writers Association Award”, in recognition of her 34 published
books, and her fruitful activities for the promotion of Hebrew culture, and
the culture of peace. The award was awarded to Prof. Aharoni by the Chairman
of the Writers’ Association, Adv. Zvika Nir, together with Deputy Chairman
Adv. Atzmon Yaniv.
Chairman Zvika Nir, spoke about the great and fruitful literary and cultural
activity by Prof. Aharoni in the Writers’ Association, and outside it, to
promote culture and literature in Israel and around the world.
This is a rare event, because only two writers have received this Award
before in the whole of Israel, and Prof. Ada Aharoni is the first writer to
receive this prestigious Award in Haifa and the North of Israel. This Award
follows many awards and prizes that Aharoni received, including the
“President’s Prize for Peace Culture,” presented to her by the late
President Shimon Peres, and the “City of Haifa Honorary Award,” award to her
by Haifa Mayor Yona Yahav.
