Uri Zvi Greenberg

Star of David Israeli art Picture of Star of David walls around Jerusalem is courtesy of illustrator and artist Sabina Saad who made it as an illustration for Uri Zvi Greenberg’s poem:
tonight they are shooting at your gates, Jerusalem.

Sabina told me that she was influenced by the word “shield “ which appears a few times in this poem. I showed her E.M. Lilien's ex-libris for philosopher Martin Buber which used the same idea a few decades before her; she was satisfied to hear about this connection to the first zionist painter.
