B'nai B'rith World Center recently bestowed its 2014 awards for excellence in Diaspora reportage, with the Times Of Israel's founding editor David Horovitz winning the “Lifetime Achievement Award.”
Since its establishment in 1992, the B’nai B’rith World Center Award for Journalism has recognized excellence in reportage on contemporary Diaspora Jewish communities and on the state of Israel-Diaspora relations today in the Israeli print and electronic media.
Read an excerpt of the Times Of Israel's own piece on Horovitz, commemorating his award:
The lifetime achievement award to Horovitz, in memory of Luis and Trudi Schydlowsky, recognized “his dedication to extended Diaspora reportage over a 30-year career.”
The B’nai B’rith World Center Award is widely acknowledged in the media industry as the most prestigious prize in its field in Israel. Its goal is to help shore up the relationship between Israel and the Diaspora by recognizing excellence in Diaspora-related reportage appearing in the Israeli print, broadcast and web-based media.
It was established in recognition of the important contribution the media can make toward strengthening the relationship between Israel and world Jewry, so essential for the resilience of both, by encouraging quality reportage on Diaspora communities and Israel-Diaspora relations.
