Whizin Prize in Jewish Ethics
Each year, the Center for Jewish Ethics sponsors an essay contest to encourage fresh thinking on contemporary Jewish ethics. For almost two decades Bruce Whizin z”l encouraged the development of the field of Jewish ethics through the establishment of the Whizin prize for essays in Jewish ethics. We note his recent passing with sadness. The essay prize will continue to be awarded, a tribute to his generosity and vision. The archive of prize winning essays can be found here. The contest is open to rabbinical and graduate students. The Whizin Prize in Jewish Ethics will be awarded for the best essay, research paper or curriculum addressing a contemporary ethical issue from a Jewish perspective. The prize includes an award of $1,800 and publication on the Center’s website. Submissions of any length are welcome, including those written in fulfillment of class requirements. Entries should be mailed or emailed to the Center for Jewish Ethics, 1299 Church Road, Wyncote, PA 19095 or JewishEthics@RRC.edu. Name, address, email and title should be on a separate sheet so that the judges do not see them. All entries must be received no later than March 15, 2023. The winner will be announced by May 1, 2023.
