Notes American Literature At The Hebrew University

Sholom Kahn has been a teacher at Hebrew University of Jerusalem for 3 of the 4 years he has been in Israel and is interviewed in this Vistas of Israel program. He is a native New Yorker married to a Sabra and has a young daughter. He had been an English professor at Queens College and Columbia University, both in New York. Mr. Kahn discusses the population make-up of the Hebrew University as well as the American authors discussed in his classes and how there are similarities with the American and Israeli dreams. American authors are being translated into Hebrew including Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass". American plays are acted in classes as well. Comparisons are made by Mr. Kahn of American vs Israeli students, with the Israelis generally older and more serious in outlook.
