Chaim Bermant Award for Journalism

Maureen Lipman introduces The Chaim Bermant Award for Journalism, produced for Jewish Book Week 2015. The award is presented in memory of the late journalist and author, at once “Anglo-Jewry’s voice of conscience” and, by his own typically tongue-in-cheek designation, “a licensed heretic.” Contributors are the judges: journalists Miriam Gross, Gerald Jacobs and Geoffrey Paul, with readings by Maureen Lipman.
