I’m pleased to report that my Jerusalem Letter on Joel and Ethan Coen’s A Serious Man(“Hollywood’s Jewish Moment,” March 21, 2010) has been awarded the American Jewish Press Association’s 2010 Simon Rockower Award for Excellence in Jewish Journalism. My essay, which is the first film review I’ve published, appeared in an abridged version inHadassah Magazine at the end of last year. The essay won first place in the category of “Art and Criticism News and Features.” The Rockower Award honors the best Jewish journalism published in the United States each year

Here’s the abridged version as it appeared in Hadassah.

The full listing of all prizes awarded in all 19 categories appears here: Simon Rockower Award for Excellence in Jewish Journalism.

I’d like to express my gratitude to the panel of judges, and especially to Zelda Shluker, Managing Editor of Hadassah Magazine, for proposing this collaboration.
