South Jerusalem is proud to announce that Gershom Gorenberg and Haim Watzman have been awarded this year’s Moskowitz Prize for Zionism . The award is given each year to people who act “for the benefit of the common good in order to ensure the strength and resilience of the national Jewish homeland.”
It’s a distinct pleasure that our efforts to save the country we love so dearly from some of its worst instincts have been recognized by a distinguished panel of judges that includes serous and original religious thinkers like Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis.
Past year’s winners, we should note, include some of this blog’s greatest fans, such as Hebron Jewish community leader Noam Arnon.
Honoring the request of the prize committee, we will be changing this blog’s name to “Deep East Jerusalem” and moving, with our families, to hilltop mansions in the Samarian highlands. Thanks, Irving, and happy Purim to you and yours!
