Michal Hagati-Chomsky

Michal Hagati-Chomsky (1927–2004) was a founding member of Kibbutz Revivim. After the War of Independence she became a teacher of Hebrew to new immigrants, for whom she wrote textbooks and readers. She completed her studies in Hebrew language, Bible and literature at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1963. In the 1980s she began organizing the archives of President Zalman Shazar and his wife Rachel (née Katznelson), who was her aunt. As a result, she edited a collection of entries from her aunt’s diaries and notes, as well as a prize-winning collection of letters written by the Shazars to each other between the years 1909 and 1963.
