MK Wortzman: The Literary World has Lost a Cornerstone

Deputy Education Minister Avi Wortzman reacted, Friday morning, to the passing of author Devora Omer by saying, "The Israeli literary world lost one of its cornerstones today. Devora Omer's books constitute an integral part of the Israeli experience and are woven into the maturation of each child and youth in the state of Israel."

Wortzman said that Omer's contribution to Israeli literature "is priceless and her heritage will continue to raise entire generations, even after her passing."
