Forward Picks Up Seven Awards

The Forward has been presented with seven Simon Rockower Awards by the American Jewish Press Association — more awards than any other Jewish newspaper this year — including four first-place prizes.

The first-place achievements are 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.” The Web sites of the Forward and JTA tied for first place in the outstanding Web site 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.
