I would like to thank all of you who participated in this year’s awards, especially those of you who did so in the right spirit. I hope you all had fun, benefited with increased traffic, and plan to provide your increased readership with interesting, thought-provoking content. I would also like to thank the Jerusalem Post for helping to run the awards this year. I think you did a fabulous job.


Until next year.
