I was privileged enough to plant trees in Israeli soil. I was privileged enough to see Israeli children bring first fruit while singing: “Saleinu al Ktefeinu [Our baskets are on our shoulders – a well-known children’s song written by Kipnis himself]”. I was privileged enough to write books for children and infants… I was privileged, I was privileged, and I have been privileged.” [Levin Kipnis, Who Gave Voice to the Dumb?, Tammuz Publishing]

Kipnis was a prolific children’s author, enriching Israeli children’s language, and incorporating ancient scripture in his writing. His work accompanies generations of Israeli children on holidays, changes in seasons, poetry, fairytale, riddles, and stories.
