Yael Roseman

Yael Roseman was born in Ramat Gan, Israel, in 1942. She spent her military service and early 20s living and working on a kibbutz. In 1967, she moved to Jerusalem and studied occupational therapy. In the early 1970s, she was also actively involved in the fledgling Israeli Women's Movement.
After writing a play for an amateur puppet theater, Roseman was asked to work for Israel Television. She became a scriptwriter for children's programs and led creative writing workshops for children and teenagers. In 1981, she moved with her family to a small village in the Galilee based on ecological principles. She now lives in Tel Aviv.
