      Subject: Announcement: Southern Jewish Historical Society Book Award


      The Southern Jewish Historical Society (SJHS) announces a prize for the
      book that has made the most significant contribution to the field of
      Jewish history of the American South. The winner will receive $500 and
      will be the guest of the Society at its annual conference, where the
      prize will be presented.

      The prize is awarded every four years. This round of submissions is for
      books published between January 1, 2003 and December 31, 2006.

      Books must focus on Jewish history within the southern United States,
      defined for the purposes of this competition as the former Confederate
      states as well as the border states. Works examining the history of
      Southern Jews within the broader history of the South, or within the
      history of American Jews in general will also be considered.

      All submissions must be non-fiction and may include standard monographs,
      memoirs, biographies, and edited collections. Books must be in English
      and must be original works. Works outside the field of history, as well
      as reprints, reissues, or updated versions of earlier works will not be
      considered.

      Publishers or authors should submit three (3) copies of books meeting
      the above criteria to:


      SJHS Book Prize Committee

      Weiner, Yancy, Dempsey & Diggs, LLP

      Attn: Barbara

      1718 Peachtree NW #990

      Atlanta, GA 30309



      All submissions must be received by April 15, 2007. Entries will be
      judged by an independent committee of scholars consisting of Dr. Karla
      Goldman of the Jewish Women's Archive (chair), Dr. Stephen J. Whitfield
      of Brandeis University, and Dr. Stuart Rockoff of the
      Goldring/Woldenberg Institute for Southern Jewish Life. The winner will
      be announced in advance of the SJHS's annual conference to be held in
      Washington, D.C., November 2-4, 2007.
      Submissions cannot be returned to the applicant.
