About Itzhak Katznelson

Hello, I am Jonathan great nephew of Itzhak Katznelson. I maintain his profile and would like to help those that are doing research on this great man.

The information I have on Katznelson is rather scant; I don't speak yiddish and the bulk of his work is in yiddish. His closest relative is Badana - now 92 - founder of kibbutz Male HaChamisha in 1934. Her brother actually visited there, but returned to Poland only to be killed by the Nazis.

Most of what I know of Yitzhak Katznelson comes from the Feinstein family, they live in Ramat Yochanan (Its'a a kibbutz near Kiryat Atta which is near Haifa).

I can put you in touch with the Feinsteins which have some of the original yiddish works of Yitzhak.

Yitzhak was a Poet - many streets in Israel named after him

Worked as teacher in Łódź, Poland.

One of his poems - "For not lost is the hope"
