The evening will feature one of Moment's signature world-class conversations from our distinguished group of 2013 Moment Magazine Creativity Award recipients on the fascinating topic of "Creativity and the Brain." Our recipients are pianist and conductor Leon Fleisher; novelist and philosopher Rebecca Newberger Goldstein; psychologist and linguist Steven Pinker; sculptor and neuroscientist Barton Rubenstein; and the host of NPR's Wait, Wait-Don't Tell Me Peter Sagal. NPR's All Things Considered senior host Robert Siegel will moderate. Moment co-foundersNobel Prize laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel and writer Leonard Fein will be our honorary co-chairs for this very special evening.
Moment Magazine, the nations leading independent Jewish magazine, is proud to honor two people this year who have provided visionary leadership on an international scale: Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat for his work forging restitution agreements for Holocaust victims will receive Moment Magazines International Humanitarian Award; and Peter Ammon, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, will receive the Moment Magazine Ambassador Award for his work on fostering German-US Jewish relations. We will also honor Moment Magazine journalists Amy E. Schwartz and Eileen Lavine.
The symposium is a benefit for Moment Magazine and its Daniel Pearl Investigative Journalism Initiative (DPIJI), an anti-prejudice project that makes it possible for young writers to report on modern manifestations of deeply ingrained prejudices, including but not limited to anti-Semitism. The DPIJI Advisory Board includes Robert Siegel, ProPublica founder Paul Steiger, CNN's Wolf Blitzer and executive editor of the Investigative Reporting Workshop Charles Lewis.
