Two Bostonians Win Israeli Prizes

Download PDF for this date

Two former Bostonians took first prize awards in a new competition for immigrant photographers, “Israel Through the Immigrant’s Camera,” conducted by the ZOA House here. The winning entries were those of Mrs. Alexandra Dorner, 27, of Jerusalem, and Rabbi Yoel Ornat, 44, also of Jerusalem and former Hebrew teacher in Boston. Mrs. Dorner’s entry was the humorous portrayal of a camel’s head. Rabbi Ornat’s prize winner was a study of the venerable Rabbi Ben-Zion Brock. Each received a prize of IL 500. Of the 78 contenders, winners also included Hetter Rachman of South Africa, now a Jerusalem resident, second prize; and Lex Diamond formerly from Sierra Madre, Calif., who won third prize.
