Kol Israel broadcasts may now be heard only via the internet.

Elihu Ben-Onn Host of ‘The Israel Connection’

Receives  B'nai B'rith World Center Award for Journalism for 2006                                                            

 

The award jury  conferred Honorable Mention on Israel Radio broadcaster Elihu Ben-Onn (right) in recognition of "The Israeli Connection" - a weekly program he founded and has hosted on Reshet Bet (Channel 2) for the past seven years. The program has carried thousands of interviews with Israelis and Jews from around the world, presenting a glimpse on a wide variety of Jewish communities, on Israel-Diaspora relations, and on the common Jewish destiny. Ben-Onn is a senior radio broadcast journalist and talk show host, covering many facets of the Arab-Israel conflict, the peace process, wars, and elections. He served for 11 years as editor-in-chief of Israel Radio's "Yoman Boker" (Morning Journal) – the country's highest rated news magazine and is one of Israel's best-recognized play-by-play sports announcers. He is a retired Brigadier General, former Israel National Police spokesman, and a graduate of the Hebrew University in international relations and history of the Jewish people

Since its establishment in 1993, the B'nai B'rith World Center Award for Journalism has recognized excellence in reportage on contemporary Diaspora Jewish communities and on the state of Israel-Diaspora relations today in the Israeli print and electronic media. The award seeks to generate greater public interest and knowledge in Israel about current conditions of Jewish communities in the Diaspora and Israel-Diaspora relations. The award carries a cash prize and certificate and is named for the late Wolf Matsdorf, a founding member of the B'nai B'rith World Center Executive Committee and a journalist who published articles of Jewish interest in the Jerusalem Post and in Australian Jewish newspapers, and his late wife Hilda Matsdorf, a pioneer in the field of social work in Israel.

The distinguished award jury includes: Dan Pattir, chair, political analyst and media advisor to Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin and Menachem Begin; Dr. Yehudith Auerbach, head of the Journalism and Communication Studies division, Bar Ilan University; Eli Eyal, editor-in-chief of Kivunim Hadashim, Journal of Zionism and Judaism; Dr. Dina Goren, journalist, media researcher, and former member of the governing boards of the Israel Broadcasting Authority and the Second Authority for Radio and Television; Asher Weill, editor of "Ariel" The Israel Review of Arts and Letters and member of the B'nai B'rith World Center Executive Committee
