In the second half of November, Alexander Korotko visited Israel. It was a ten-day trip, connected with creative plans, one of which was the publication of a book of poetry in Hebrew. On this occasion, the poet met several times with the chairman of the Union of Writers of Israel Efraim Bauch, who with attention and interest reacted to the many-sided creativity of Alexander Korotko and highly appreciated his poetic gift. An important outcome of the trip was the introduction of Alexander Korotko into the authoritative and world-famous Union of Writers of Israel. The membership card was handed to him by Union Secretary Leonid Finkel.
