Two writers for the Forward have been named finalists for the 2017 Deadline Club Awards.
Simi Horwitz is a finalist in the category of Reporting by a Newspaper with Circulation Under 100,000 for her three-part series on Hasidic women. The first item of that series focused on the women helming Orthodox newspapers, the next on Orthodox cinema’s woman-led revolution, and the last on the increasing prominence of Orthodox woman singers.
Allan M. Jalon is a finalist in the category of Arts Reporting for his article “Paul Newman’s Lost Masterpiece — And How We Rediscovered It.”
