Biography

Zacks-Abramov was born in Jerusalem in 1912 as Ayala Ben-Tovim. Her parents, Shmuel Ben-Tovim and Rashe (née: Berman) were married in Jerusalem in 1902. She studied in London and in Paris where she met her first husband, Morris Fleg, who she married in 1938.[1]
In 1940, during World War II, she joined the French Resistance after Fleg enlisted to the army and was killed during a military operation.
In 1947, she married Samuel Zacks, a Canadian economist and art collector, whom she met during her stay in Switzerland. After marrying, the couple began to collect art items from the 19th century and the 20th century, mainly of French, Canadian and Israeli artists such as Gauguin, Rodin, Picasso, Henri Matisse, Kandinsky and Chagall. They also acquired art by Israeli artists such as Marcel Janco, Mordechai Ardon, Reuven Rubin and Anna Ticho, and art of relatively unknown artists at the time of the purchase such as Ofer Lellouche, Yigal Tumarkin and Joseph Zaritsky.
In 1970, her husband Zacks died. She returned to Israel in 1976 and married Zalman Abramov, who was a lawyer and a Knesset member.[2] The couple were patrons of the arts, and Abramov continued to support the art world even after her husband's death in 1997.
