Yocheved Bat-Miriam (Hebrew: יוכבד בת-מרים; Russian: Бат-Мирьям Иохевед; pen name of Yocheved Zhlezniak) (5 March 1901 – 7 January 1980) was an Israeli poet. She is unusual among Hebrew poets in expressing nostalgia for the landscapes of the country of her birth. Yocheved migrated to British Palestine, later to be called Israel, in 1928. Her first book of poetry, Merahok ("From a distance") was published in 1929. In 1948, her son Nahum (Zuzik) Hazaz from the writer Haim Hazaz died in the Israeli War of Independence. Since then she never wrote a poem again.
