Thank you for your participation in our nominations process. Stay tuned for the announcement of the 2020 Genesis Prize Laureate.



The Genesis Prize was launched in 2013 to foster Jewish identity, inspire Jewish pride and strengthen the bond between Israel and the Diaspora. The annual $1 million-dollar award celebrates Jewish talent and achievement by honoring individuals for their professional accomplishments, commitment to Jewish values, and contribution to improving the world.

Since its launch, the Genesis Prize has honored seven exceptional individuals: Michael Bloomberg, Michael Douglas, Itzhak Perlman, Anish Kapoor, Natalie Portman, and Robert Kraft.  Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg received the inaugural Genesis Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018.
