Providence, RI - Andrew Silow-Carroll, editor of New Jersey Jewish News won the inaugural David Twersky Journalism Award for his September 28, 2011 Editor’s column “Bima Vs. Bully Pulpit.” Silow-Carroll is David Twersky’s successor at New Jersey Jewish News.
In 1991, Carroll was the acting editor of The Washington Jewish Week, a highly decorated and well-respected independent newspaper. In 1992, he wasn't. The reason? He went to a picnic.
