New Israeli monetary notes will feature two famous women

The Israeli treasury's issuing at least two updated banknotes with famous lady figures on them:
The new NIS 20 banknote is red and features the portrait of Rachel Bluwstein (1890-1931), famous in Israel as Rachel the Poetess. Although most of her poems were written only in the final six years of her life, she is considered by many to be the greatest of all Hebrew poets. The back of the note features a typical view of the shores of the Sea of ​​Galilee, which is where she lived at the end of her life and where she is buried.

The new NIS 100 banknote is orange and features the portrait of Leah Goldberg (1911-1970), one of Israel’s leading literary figures – a poet, author, playwright, teacher, literary translator and researcher. A picture of deer appears on the back of the note, which refers to a famous children’s book that she wrote.
An excellent idea, and about time it was thought of too. People who worked in arts are just as important as politicians, maybe even more so.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
