Bnai-Brith Journalism Awards Announced

The Bnai Brith World Center in Jerusalem will present the 2010-2011 Wolf and Hilde Matsdorf Award for Journalism on Israel-Diaspora Relations to Bambi Sheleg, founder and editor of the magazine "Eretz Acheret", and documentary photographer/director/producer Menny Elias. Sheleg's win in the print category was for the November-December edition of the magazine, entitled, "“Two States for Two Peoples: America Jewry and Us.” Elias won in the broadcast category for “When Israel Went Out,” broadcast in October 2010 on Israel Television, which followed three young Israeli Ethiopians on a re-enactment of their dangerous journey by foot from Ethiopia to Sudan on their way to Israel.

Next week's ceremony will include the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award to Noah Klieger, member of the editorial board of Yediot Acharonot for thousands of articles on Diaspora communities published during his 54-year career with the newspaper.
