National Jewish Book Award

Guidelines for the National Jewish Book Awards
The goal for National Jewish Book Award judging panels is to select a quality book in their respective category that will appeal to a broad reading audience. There are variations in the rules governing each award category, but the judges are guided by these principles in arriving at their decisions:
  • The book must be of Jewish content
  • Books, either hardcover or original paperback, must be published between January 1–December 31 of the year under consideration. If the book is published in November or December of the prior year, and only if no galleys are available prior to the publication date, the book may be submitted the following year
  • The book must be primarily printed in English and distributed in the United States
  • The National Jewish Book Awards submission period is open from early summer to late September/early October
