Award description

The annual award recognizes the unique role of contemporary writers in the transmission and examination of the Jewish experience. It is intended to encourage and promote outstanding writing of Jewish interest. Each year, the prize of $100,000 aims to reward an emerging writer whose work has demonstrated a fresh vision and evidence of further growth. Recipients must have written a book of literary merit that stimulates an interest in themes of Jewish concern. Fiction and non-fiction books are considered in alternate years.
