Obituary: Esther Herlitz

Posted in News by .

It is with great sorrow that we received the announcement from the International Harp Contest and the Festival Zimriya that their Honorary President, Ms. ESTHER HERLITZ, passed away.

Esther Herlitz had a public career that spanned over seven decades and served her country Israel in many capacities. Last year in April, Esther was awarded with the Israel Prize for her unique contribution to society and the state of Israel. World-acclaimed humanist, diplomat and politician (she served as a member of the Knesset for the Alignment during many years), Esther devoted a major part of her live and efforts to the promotion of culture, with an emphasis on musical excellence. Esther was so strong in the choral world and instrumental in the early and formative years of IFCM. She served as an IFCM Board Member and Advisor from 1986 to 1999. We will all miss her. May she rest in Peace.
