BookNews error

I just sent a BookNews announcing some new books. About 5 minutes after I sent it, I noticed an error. Too late to recall it. Oops.

Then I challenged the Customer Service reps to find the error. Help! They found a second one. It must be Friday!

Can you find one of the errors? Here's the BookNews:

Eisenbrauns would like to congratulate two of our authors who were recently recognized for their accomplishments:

Dr. Joan Goodnick-Westenholz was recently awarded the Curator's Prize by the Israeli Ministry of Culture. Dr. Goodnick-Westenholz, chief curator at the Bible Lands Museum, Jerusalem received the prize for her contribution to understanding the history of the People of Israel against the background of the cultures of the ancient near east.

Prof. Sara Japhet (The Hebrew University) was elected President of the World Union of Jewish Studies by the Union Council at its meeting on May 26, 2006. Japhet is Professor of Bible at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her research interests include biblical religion and literature, restoration period; literature, history
and theology; Biblical law and the history of Jewish exegesis. She was the recipient of the Israel Prize for Biblical Studies for the year 2004.
