The TLS-Risa Domb/Porjes Prize of £2,000 has been awarded triennially since 1998 and recognises the English translation of a full-length Hebrew book, fiction or non-fiction, of general interest and literary merit.
The prize is sponsored by the Edith and Ferdinand Porjes Charitable Trust, a grant-making charity which was established in the late 1970s. The Trust was constituted for general charitable purposes with particular regard to the promotion of the arts both in the UK and Israel and welfare within the Jewish community, with special reference to the needs of children and young people.
The winner of the 2019 TLS-Risa Domb/Porjes Prize was Peter C. Appelbaum for a translation of Hell on Earth by Avigdor Hameiri (Wayne State University Press)
The 2022 Prize, which will be awarded in February 2023, is currently open for submissions via the Jewish Book Week website.
Submissions must be made by 30 June 2022.
