The Koret International
Jewish Book Awards

After successfully running the program for eight years, the Koret Foundation is retiring its Koret Jewish Book Awards. Jewish Family & Life! was proud to have made their mark on the management and execution of the awards this past year. It was very fulfilling to be part of such a long-standing tradition.

As a philanthropy, Koret’s purpose is to fund organizations and projects that present innovative approaches to addressing societal challenges. They were pleased to launch this program in 1998, and to support its growth to maturity, demonstrating the impact that Jewish book awards can have on Jewish community engagement. Together we hope that the successful national dialogue that this program has spawned will continue for years to come.

Due to the participation of so many judges, writers, illustrators and publishers over the past eight years, the Koret Jewish Book Awards rewarded the best in Jewish writing and the exchange of ideas in various categories. New voices, too, were advanced by the Koret awards. It was an exciting time for all of us.
