Jacob Isaac Segal Awards

In 2020, JPL’s Jacob Isaac Segal Awards celebrated its 52nd anniversary in 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.
