Jacob Isaac Segal Awards
In 2020, JPL’s Jacob Isaac Segal Awards celebrates its 52nd anniversary with a brand new format.
The awards have been consolidated to three: Best Quebec Book on a Jewish Theme, with a prize of $5,000, the Dr. Hirsh and Dvora Rosenfeld Award for Yiddish Literature ($1,000) and the Rosa and David Z”L Finestone Translation Award for a Book on a Jewish Theme ($1,000).
For over half a century, the Jacob Isaac Segal Awards have been an important community recognition of Jewish-based literature. With this new format we also honour the contribution of Jewish culture to a richly diverse contemporary Quebec.
The Awards Gala will take place on Thursday, November 12, 2020 at 7:30 pm.
