The Koret Jewish Book Awards were announced in March 2005. Mazel tov to all the finalists and recipients, and to Robert Alter's path-breaking translation and commentary on The Five Books of Moses and Amos Oz's celebrated memoir of growing up in the fledgling State of Israel have been selected as 2004-2005 Koret Jewish Book Award winners

KORET Winner: Biography, Autobiography and Literary Studies
[] Amos Oz, translated from the Hebrew by Nicolas de Lange
A Tale of Love and Darkness
Harcourt, Inc.
Amos Oz's memoir is a story as seen through the uncannily persuasive eyes of a child-of his parents, of Jerusalem in the late 1940s and early '50s, and of a young, haunted Israeli state. It is a work of uncommon insight, and passion, and deep, searching intelligence.








KORET Winner: Children's Literature
[] Karen Hesse, illustrated by Wendy Watson
The Cats in Krasinski Square
Scholastic
A quietly compelling, poetic rendering of a young girl's resistance to the horrors of the Warsaw Ghetto, that both illuminates a dark time and leaves young readers with at least a hint of hope. Sepia-toned, muted, and quietly powerful paintings intelligently and sensitively use light and shadow to focus attention on the dramatic contrasts of an important story.








KORET Winner: Fiction
[] Tony Eprile
The Persistence of Memory
W. W. Norton & Company
A perceptive, often comic recollection of the youth of a conflicted South African Jew during the final years of the apartheid regime, and the turbulence of the new African republic with its demands upon memory or its eradication.








KORET Winner: History
[] Elisheva Baumgarten
Mothers and Children:
Jewish Family Life in Medieval Europe
Princeton University Press
A truly original, fascinating portrait of the intimacy of Jewish family, motherhood, and childhood in the context of life in medieval Christian Europe. It is a work of consummate clarity, skill, and sophistication.








KORET Winner: Jewish Philosophy and Thought
[] Rabbi Steven Greenberg
Wrestling with God and Men
Homosexuality in the Jewish Tradition
University of Wisconsin Press
Learned, accessible, and unflinchingly honest, this bold theological work offers illuminating and compelling arguments for the possibility of being religiously observant and openly homosexual.








KORET Winner: SPECIAL AWARD for Translation and Commentary
[] Robert Alter
The Five Books of Moses
W. W. Norton & Company
The translation is outstanding, and the culmination of a lifetime of the highest level of scholarly achievement.
