EVER HADANI

EVER HADANI (pseudonym of Aharon Feldman ; 1899–1972), Hebrew writer. Born near Pinsk, he immigrated to Palestine in 1913, and after serving with the Jewish Legion during World War i, lived in the kibbutzim Maḥanayim and Kefar Giladi. He edited agricultural publications and from 1948 worked in the Israel Ministry of Agriculture. Apart from his publications in many newspapers, he wrote several novels, including Ẓerif ha-Eẓ ("The Wood Hut," 1930), an early romantic novel about Israel's pioneers, and the trilogy Nahalolim ("Brambles," 1935); but the bulk of his writing was devoted to the history of Jewish settlement in Galilee and Samaria. Among his dozen books on this subject are Ha-Shomer (1931) and Ḥakla'ut ve-Hityashevut be-Yisrael (1958). His collected works appeared in seven volumes (1968).
