Call for Submissions 2020 (5780)


The Katz Foundation and the Katz Prize Committee

hereby issues this call inviting submissions for the Katz Prize,

founded by Mordechai David Katz z”l and Adina Katz

for the year 2020 (5780).


The prize is divided among institutions and individuals who, by dint of their activities,

writings, or research, have made a significant contribution

to the application of Halachah and Jewish wisdom to modern developments.

The prize committee also welcomes applications from organizations and individuals

who have only recently begun to grapple with issues in contemporary life,

which requires the input and creativity of Jewish tradition.


Four prizes of up to $25,000 each will be awarded

at a ceremony to be held in Jerusalem in the month of Tammuz, 2020.
