Breaking the Silence to receive alternative award from BGU faculty

Faculty from the Ben Gurion University of the Negev will present an alternative award to NGO Breaking the Silence in lieu of a canceled prize the group was supposed to receive from the university.

The event, set to take place next Monday on campus, will see the group receive a NIS 20,000 (some $5,000) award presented by Dr. Iris Agmon, BGU’s Middle East Studies Department head. The event will also include a lecture by famed Israeli author Amos Oz on "Betrayal and Loyalty."
