The Jewish Exponent won first place for "niche publication" in a statewide journalism contest.
The Jewish Exponent was named the best "niche" publication in the state by the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association.
The annual Keystone Press Awards also recognized the paper's executive editor, Lisa Hostein, with an honorable mention for her editorial writing for her columns: "The Legacy We Leave," "Not Acceptable" and "A Necessary First Step."
“We are proud to once again be recognized as the best niche publication in the state of Pennsylvania,” said Hostein. “Serving the Jewish community of Greater Philadelphia with intelligent, entertaining and locally focused coverage in our print and online platforms is our mission. This award recognizes those efforts by a small but dedicated and talented staff and inspires us to reach even greater heights in the future."
