The Natan Fund, a foundation that supports Jewish nonprofits, has introduced a new award to support books on Jewish themes. The Natan Book Award will award selected authors with $50,000.
The money will be divided up in two stages. First, individual authors will be granted $15,000 to support the writing process. The second financing phase will pay for the book’s marketing.
Journalists Jeffrey Goldberg and Franklin Foer will co-chair the Natan Book Award Committee. The Fund is currently looking for submissions for next year’s award. The deadline is December 3rd. Follow this link to find out more details.
