My recent book, Becoming Elijah: Prophet of Transformation, was selected as the inaugural winner of the Rabbi Jonathan Sacks Book Prize, a prize established by Yeshiva University in honor of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks. Rabbi Sacks was a British Orthodox rabbi, philosopher and theologian who served as the Chief Rabbi of Great Britain from 1991-2013.
Here is a recording of the Sacks Book Prize event, March 26, 2023, at Kehilath Jeshurun, NYC. This is a conversation between Daniel Matt and Dr. Shira Weiss on Becoming Elijah.
Here is a description of the prize from Yeshiva University's website https://www.yu.edu/sacksbookprize
"The Sacks Book Prize will be awarded annually to an author of a recently published work of Jewish ideas deeply sourced in Jewish texts, with broad appeal within and beyond the Jewish community. The author of the winning work will be awarded a $50,000 prize. Additional funds will be used to help the author promote the book."
