Esther Raab

Esther Raab (1894–1981), Israel's first "native" woman poet, was born into one of the founding families of one of the first agricultural settlements in Eretz Israel. Born in Petah Tikvah, she later lived in Cairo, then Paris, finally settling in Tel Aviv, where her home became a center for writers and painters.
