The Jewish Community Council of Washington, D. C. offered a $500 award to
the author of the best book of Jewish interest published during the year, and a
similar offer of $250 was made from Philadelphia. It was, therefore, decided that
the $500 award should be given to the author of a work of non-fiction of Jewish
interest and $250 award to the author of a work of fiction. The $500 award was
given to
by Dr. Harry A. Wolfson and the $250 awarded to
My Glorious
by Howard Fast.
The JWB Department of Public Information cooperated in the Council’s public
relations program. Dozens of news releases and feature articles on various aspects
of the Council’s work were issued to the English-Jewish and the Yiddish press. It
is particularly gratifying to note the excellent cooperation of the press which
devoted considerable space to the Council.
