SAMI ROHR PRIZE FOR JEWISH LITERATURE
INAUGURATED IN 2007 BY THE ROHR FAMILY
The Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature honors the legacy of Sami Rohr z”l, who enjoyed a lifelong love of Jewish learning and great books.
As the premier award of its kind, the annual prize recognizes the unique role of contemporary writers in the examination and transmission of the Jewish experience. The $100,000 prize is presented to an emerging writer who demonstrates the potential for continued contribution to the world of Jewish literature.
