The B’nai B’rith World Center names Judah Ari Gross as runner-up for its Award for Journalism Recognizing Excellence in Diaspora Reportage, recognizing his reporting on Jewish communities throughout the world for The Times of Israel.
Gross wins the certificate of merit award alongside Maariv’s Josh Aronson for “articles spanning Jewish communities in Kyrgyzstan, the U.S., Great Britain, Poland and Ukraine,” B’nai B’rith says in a statement.
Top prize goes to Itamar Eichner of Yedioth Ahronoth for coverage of Jewish communities in the US, Europe and particularly Ukraine.
Gross, who covered the military and religion and diaspora affairs for The Times of Israel for 8 years, left in March. He is now news editor for ejewishphilanthropy.com
