Shalom Postolski  Biography

Shalom Postolski is a composer. He was born in 1893 in the town of Sedlec (the Kingdom of Poland of the Russian Empire, now Poland) in the family of Gur Khasid. In 1901 the family moved to the suburb of Warsaw Radzymin.

From his childhood he composed music for various texts, including religious content. The father, a lover of music, encouraged his son’s enthusiasm. But his money was enough only to pay for the year of Shalom’s education at the Warsaw Conservatoire.

Since 1909 he lived in Warsaw, earning money in local Yiddish newspapers. He was a member of the Ha-Halutz movement.

In 1920 he immigrated to Palestine. At first he worked in the settlement of Atarot, then in the settlement of Menahemia. Joined the “Workers’ Battalion named after Joseph Trumpeldor”, participated in the founding of the kibbutz Ein Harod, in which he worked as an agricultural worker.

In 1926 he began to write songs on the poems of Israeli poets. His work was noted by Shlomo Rozovsky. In 1933 he took a two-year vacation to study music theory in Tel Aviv under the leadership of Erich Walter Sternberg.

On his return to Ein Harod was forced again to work in agriculture. In 1940, because of the turmoil between members of his family and members of the kibbutz, he moved to the settlement of Beit Yitzhak, in which Shalom Postolsky died at the age of 56 after nine years of musical and social isolation.
