lives in: Tel Aviv, Israel

Shimon Adaf was born in 1972 in Sderot, a small town in Southern Israel. Adaf’s parents immigrated to Israel from Morocco and his background has sometimes played a dominant part in his writing. Adaf’s first poems were published in literary magazines when he was about twenty years old.

After military service Adaf moved to Tel Aviv, where he currently lives, and joined a rock band, Ha-Atsula (‘Aristocracy’), as a song writer and acoustic guitar player. At the same time he was a founding member of the literary group ‘Ev’.
