The mythological narrator of "Today’s Chapters in the Bible", a daily episode that was broadcast on Kol Yerushalayim and later on Kol Israel.

The house they lived in was part of the workers’ dormitories, buildings built at the initiative of the Histadrut, built in the international style and inhabited by Histadrut activists and artists. The area was also called the "Habima neighborhood" because of the large number of actors who lived in the area.

Today, the building houses "Beit Livik", a center for Yiddish culture.
