Has Anyone Nominated Women in Green?

It's time for nominations for the Moskowitz Prize for Zionism. I think Women in Green's Nadia and Ruth Matar deserve the prize.

The Moskowitz Prize for Zionism was established by Dr. Irving and Cherna Moskowitz as an expression of support for people who put Zionism into action in today's Israeli society, acting for the benefit of the common good in order to ensure the strength and resilience of the national Jewish homeland.

The need for this special prize arose from the feeling, shared by many, that the true Zionist heroes in today's Israel - those known to the public as well as those far outside the public spotlight - do not always receive the institutional recognition and public praise they deserve.

These are Israeli men and women acting from a feeling of personal responsibility, vision and national mission, each in his field, and often while sacrificing their personal welfare and even endangering their personal security.

This year marks the second annual Prize, and it is awarded to Israeli citizens, residents of Israel, who best personify modern Zionism in Israel in their actions addressing the challenges that face Zionism today - in education, culture, settlement, social action and other spheres. The cash prize, awarded to an individual or individuals, exceeds $100,000.

This year's submission deadline is January 7th, so please act now!
