Jacob Steinberg (1887 - 1947) was a major Ukrainian -born Israeli poet. He moved to the Land of Israel in 1915. He defied trends in two significant ways: his poetry was individualistic rather than nationalistic, and he wrote in the Ashkenazic dialect rather than the Sephardic dialect, which became the accepted norm of Israeli Hebrew. His two most famous poems are "Not an enclosed Garden" and "Confession".
