Our fascinating B’nai B’rith Magazine cover story won two prestigious Rockower Awards for journalism last night! Our story by Beryl Lieff Benderly, Secret Shabbes: How the ‘Sabbath Delight’ hid an astonishing archive” details how a brave and dedicated group of Jews chronicled the atrocities in the Warsaw Ghetto.
The judges noted: “This is a sad, moving, and graceful story that pays homage to true visionaries and their heroic acts.”
Thank you to the American Jewish Press Association for recognizing the story in TWO categories: an Honorable Mention Award for Excellence in Feature Writing AND a 2nd place Award for Excellence in Writing About Jewish Heritage and Jewish Peoplehood in Europe.
