Mr Kaniuk, You may be regarded as a great author but I doubt if you are a great educator. You also are not an authority on religion in general and the Jewish religion in particular. I have been a Principal of a Jewish Girls School here in Australia for the last 40 years. I can tell you that there is no value in teaching such poems to students at a high school. Not only there is no value, but teaching such poems to students who are so young and sometimes immature, often confuses the child and leaves her/him with more questions than answers. Regarding the Jewish religion, it is people who consider themselves as "enlightened" who are ruining our beautiful religion. Please concentrate on writing poems and don't interfere in education. Regarding Iran, I suggest you to go and spend a few months in Teheran and only then you will appreciate life in Israel and the Jewish religion.
