Israel Bar Kohav (born 1950, in Israel) is an author of poetry and prose. He works as a gestalt psychologist and lecturer for creative writing and psychology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Bar Kohav’s poems are influenced by memories of his childhood in the 1950s; he writes in a precise and lively way about intimate themes such as the ego and the search for one’s own identity, about dreams and love, but also about art, history, nature and astronomy.

Israel Bar Kohav campaigns for mediation between Arabs and Israelis and in 2002 was chosen to read before the European Parliament to mark the passage of the Middle East peace agreement. He has, to date, published ten books, for which he has been awarded numerous literature prizes in Israel. His books have been translated into 13 languages.
