The Nathan Chanin Cultural Foundation of the Workmen’s Circle announced today that it would sponsor five cultural projects during the coming year.

The projects, for which $3, 500 has been allocated by the organization, are the awarding of three prizes for the best three books in Yiddish published in 1964; a prize for the best original play about Jewish life in America; five prizes for the best English translations of Yiddish literature published in magazines or newspapers during the year.

The Foundation will also sponsor lectures at American universities on Yiddish literature and the American Jewish labor movement, and an essay contest on the Jewish contribution towards civil rights in this country.
