A hearty Mazel Tov to the winners of the Moment-Karma Short Fiction Contest. I'm delighted to report that the first-place winner, Racelle Rosett, is a new friend whom I met at the Jewish Fiction Writers' Conference last March. Racelle and the second- and third-place winners, Judith Groudine Finkel and Amy Graubart Katz, will be joined by the contest judge, Anita Diamant, for a reading and celebration at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco on November 1. I can't wait to see the winning work in the magazine!
