Jerry Davidoff Sermon Award

UUJA is delighted to announce the theme of its fourth annual Jerry Davidoff Sermon Award, for the sermon delivered in 2010 which best illustrates or exemplifies the contributions of Jewish theology, thought or culture to our Unitarian Universalist tradition:

Beyond Major Jewish Holidays: Engaging Judaism in Unitarian Universalism

First Place award comes with a $500 honorarium, which will be presented at the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association, June 22-26, 2011 in Charlotte, NC.

The UUJA award is named in honor of the late Jerry Davidoff, a longtime leader in our UU movement. He was one of the earliest members of the UUJA, which was founded over 20 years ago by UUs of Jewish descent or interest who wished to create a voice for the often overlooked Jewish presence in our faith community and to highlight one of our source traditions.

Sermons must be submitted in Word or Word-compatible processing format, together with the date and location they were delivered, to Arthur Thexton, UUJA Vice President, at athexton@hotmail.com. Submissions will be accepted until March 15, 2011. Inclusion of readings is entirely optional.
