About Erez Biton

Erez Biton is an Israeli poet of Moroccan descent. He immigrated to Israel in 1948. At the age of 10, he was blinded by a stray hand grenade that he found. He spent the rest of his childhood in Jerusalem’s Institute for the Blind.

His poetry has earned a number of literary awards, including the Miriam Talpir Prize (1982), the Prime Minister’s Prize (1988), the Yehuda Amichai Prize (2014), and the Bialik Prize for Lifetime Achievement (2014).
