MILWAUKEE – Rob Golub, editor of the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, has been selected as a finalist for two Milwaukee Press Club awards.
Golub can expect to win gold, silver or bronze in two categories. Golub’s “Review: ‘There Are Jews Here’ is a tender avalanche,” is a finalist for best critical review, along with entries from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Urban Milwaukee.
