The Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation is pleased to introduce THE FARASH FELLOWSHIP FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF JEWISH HUMANITIES AND CULTURE

As an organization concerned about the legacy we leave for others, the Farash Foundation has carefully considered the role it can and should play in supporting the contemporary work of our best creators and thinkers.  It has therefore established the Farash Fellowship and is honored to announce Amos Oz as the first recipient.

ACCLAIMED ISRAELI AUTHOR AMOS OZ THE FIRST RECIPIENT OF THE FARASH FELLOWSHIP

Amos Oz is an acclaimed novelist, short-story writer, and essayist who has been called "Israel's best known literary voice."  He has published dozens of works, among them 14 novels, five collections of stories and novellas, two children's books, and eleven books of articles and essays.  (His 2002 memoir A Tale Of Love And Darkness drew wide critical acclaim and was later turned into a movie produced by Natalie Portman.)  His works have been published in 44 languages in 46 countries.  He holds many literary prizes and awards, and for many years was professor of Hebrew literature at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beersheba.
