      Zilber: I've Become the Punching Bag of Frustrated Artists

      Well-known Israeli singer and composer Ariel Zilber received on Monday evening a prize from ACUM (Union of Composers, Writers and Publishers in Israeli Music) for his contribution to Israeli music.

      Zilber was originally supposed to have received a lifetime achievement award, but ACUM changed its mind at the last moment and chose to change the award under pressure from Dalia Rabin, daughter of murdered Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin who is a member of ACUM’s board of directors, and who is opposed to Zilber because of his rightwing political stance.
