Daily News reporter Simone Weichselbaum wins national award
Please excuse us while we kvell.
Daily News reporter
has won a national award for her “piercing, respectful, accurate and often entertaining” coverage of multicultural Brooklyn and its various Jewish communities.
Weichselbaum, a Brooklyn native, will receive the 2013 Be’chol Lashon Media Award in San Francisco next month.
“She writes with authority whether reporting tragic tales of violent crime . . . or, at the other extreme, the high price of matzo,” Be’chol Lashon director Diane Tobin said of Weichselbaum.
The award recognizes outstanding journalism depicting the diversity of Judaism.
“I grew up in Orthodox Brooklyn and Manhattan,” said Weichselbaum, 31. “People think Hasidim are interesting or weird. No, these are my neighbors.”
