HARTFORD, Conn. (Jun. 23)
Jewish and non-Jewish leaders here today congratulated the Jewish Ledger, Connecticut’s English-Jewish weekly, on its 28th anniversary and on its receipt of the first annual award of the American Association of English-Jewish Newspapers for “editorial content and news and general make-up as well as typography.” The Jewish Ledger was chosen for this award by a committee of judges composed of Ralph McGill, editor of the Atlanta Constitution; Dr. Solomon Grayzel, editor of the Jewish Publication Society, and Seymour Klyman, feature editor of the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Bernard L. Gottlieb, executive director of the Hartford Jewish Federation, said: “I wish to express my heartiest congratulations to the Connecticut Jewish Ledger for receiving this award. We at the Federation are not very surprised by it. We have always been cognizant of The Ledger’s fine service to the community, its tremendous interest in the furtherance of Jewish spirit and its readiness to be the voice of the community. We feel such spirit will insure that this will not be the last award to be won by The Ledger.”
