In June, the B’nai B’rith World Center presented the 22nd annual awards for Excellence in Diaspora Journalism, honoring a trio of Israeli journalists noted for their work in covering the Diaspora issues.

The following video covers the highlights of the evening, including the acceptance speeches from each of the three journalists. Most of the speeches are given in Hebrew with English subtitles. Here is an excerpt from each acceptance speech:

Matan Hodorov:

“I would like to thank again the honorable heads of B’nai B’rith, and the members of the jury as well, for this great honor in receiving this award, and I promise to make an effort to stay worthy of it in the continuation of my journalism career.”

Judy Maltz:

“I would like to use this stage to thank the B’nai B’rith World Center for their decision to dedicate a special award for covering this important field [with] the yearly award in memory of Wolf and Hilda Matsdorf.”

David Horovitz: 

“Thank you members of the jury…I greatly appreciate this lifetime achievement award.”
