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.

Finalists and winners of monetary prizes become Fellows in the Sami Rohr Jewish Literary Institute. Past winners have acknowledged the impact of the Prize on their careers and professional pursuits.
