Dayton Jewish Observer honored for best religion reporting in Ohio

Ohio’s Best Journalism Contest, sponsored by the Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Columbus Society of Professional Journalists chapters statewide, announced July 3 that Dayton Jewish Observer Editor and Publisher Marshall Weiss has received its 2024 first-place award for Best Religion Reporting in its small newspaper category (circulation below 60,000).

This is the eighth first-place award Weiss has received from Ohio’s Best Journalism Contest: seven for religion reporting, one for feature reporting.

Weiss has been editor of The Observer since he established it as a publication of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton in 1996. This is The Observer’s 13th first-place award overall from Ohio’s Best Journalism Contest. Weiss also received this year’s second-place award for Best Feature Reporting from Ohio’s Best Journalism Contest.

In June, the American Jewish Press Association honored him with its first-place Simon Rockower Award for Excellence in News Reporting in the category of magazines and monthly newspapers.
