The Sylvan Adams Nefesh B’Nefesh Bonei Zion Prize recognizes the achievements of outstanding Anglo Olim in the following fields:
The Nefesh B’Nefesh Bonei Zion Prize was established in September 2013 in order to formally recognize the achievements of outstanding Anglo Olim* and their contribution to the State of Israel. A prize is awarded in each of the six categories above. Nefesh B’Nefesh is grateful to Sylvan Adams for his leadership and generosity in establishing, in 2016, the Sylvan Adams Nefesh B’Nefesh Bonei Zion Prize.
As Aliyah from western countries continues to increase, English-speaking Olim are making a remarkable impact on the Jewish State – economically, socially and culturally – contributing to Israeli society in all fields of endeavor, including education, Israel advocacy, medicine & science and the arts.
This award is an expression of support for Olim whose contributions have helped better Israel in a meaningful way, and acknowledges those who encapsulate the spirit of modern-day Zionism by contributing towards developing the State of Israel.
