Awards of $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International book authors for new or soon-to-be-published nonfiction books on Jewish subjects. In addition, winners will receive free marketing and promotion assistance. Awards are available for books that involve themes that align with the Fund's focus areas, such as rein­vent­ing Jew­ish life and com­mu­ni­ty for the twen­ty-first cen­tu­ry, shift­ing notions of indi­vid­ual and col­lec­tive Jew­ish iden­ti­ty, the his­to­ry and future of Israel, and the evolv­ing rela­tion­ship between Israel and world Jewry.

Natan Notable Books will high­light vital books and authors, and bring inno­v­a­tive and impor­tant ideas to the atten­tion of diverse audiences.

Natan Notable Book win­ners will receive a Natan Notable Book seal and a cash prize for the author; marketing/​distribution coach­ing and pro­mo­tion from the Jew­ish Book Coun­cil and Natan; and cus­tomized sup­port designed to bring the book and/​or the author to new audiences.
