The Forward Wins Seven Rockower Awards

The Forward has been awarded seven Rockower Awards by the American Jewish Press Association, including four first-place prizes.

The Forward won first place in “Excellence in News Reporting” for Nathaniel Popper’s “Divorce Bill Leaves Feminists and Ultra-Orthodox in Bed Together,” in “Arts and Criticism News and Features” for Alana Newhouse’s “Jewish Mother, R.I.P.” and in “Excellence in Personality Profiles” for Toby Appleton Perl’s “The Last Word.” Forward.com also tied for first place with the JTA’s Web site in the “Outstanding Website” category.

In addition, the Forward garnered three second-place awards: in “Excellence in Editorial Writing” for “Our Ownership Society,” written by J.J. Goldberg; in “Excellence in Overall Graphic Design,” awarded to our art director, Kurt Hoffman, and in “Excellence in Single Commentary” for “A Plea for Peace from a Bereaved Palestinian Father” by Bassam Aramin.

The awards were announced this morning at the AJPA’s annual conference, which took place in Washington, D.C.
