Four Jewish writers–two Americans, an Israeli and an Australian–today were awarded the annual Zvi Kessel Literary Prizes for out-standing contributions to Jewish literature in 1960.

The four are: Dr. H.Shoshkes and I. Elmot, of New York; Herz Bergner, of Australia; and I. H. Biletzky, of Israel. All the works except Mr. Biletzky’s are in Yiddish; the latter’s book is in Hebrew.
