Biographical Sketch

"Hillel Halkin, a journalist and a writer, was born in New York City on the Upper West Side. He attended Columbia University, moved to Israel as a young man, and established himself by way of his seamless translations, from Hebrew and Yiddish to English, of a great many important writers, including Amos Oz, Uri Orlev, and A. B. Yehoshua. Halkin is also the author of several books, including Letters to an American Jewish Friend: A Zionist's Polemic. He wrote the 1977 volume several years after relocating to Zichron Ya'akov, a small town on Mount Carmel, far from the bustle of Tel Aviv and historic Jerusalem." Halkin has written three books and translated a number of works by other authors.
