Each year, The Center for Jewish Ethics at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College sponsors an essay contest to encourage fresh thinking on contemporary Jewish ethics. The prize is awarded through the generosity of Bruce Whizin. 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 1, 2021. The winner will be announced by April 30, 2021.
