Silow-Carroll Wins David Twersky Award

Andrew Silow-Carroll of the New Jersey Jewish News won the first David Twersky Journalism Award.

Named for the paper’s former editor who died of cancer in 2010 at age 60, the prize was awarded to Silow-Carroll for a column he wrote in September about rabbis politicizing the pulpit.

The award, which was established to honor journalists at the NJJN and the Forward – two publications which Twersky once served – also carries with it a $1,000 honorarium. The award will be presented at the ceremony in the spring.
