National Chidon HaTanach Finalists Announced

We are extremely proud to announce that the finalists for the National Chidon HaTanach (Bible Quiz) competition were released today and that amongst them are four MHA students: Tani Finkelstein, Efraim Wiener, Ariel Kampf, and, the champion of the Southern Division, Noga Finkelstein.  All four students will have the opportunity to compete in the National Finals held in New York on May 6th.  The winner of that grueling two and half hour competition will win a free trip to Israel next May to compete against fifteen other students from around the world in the International Chidon HaTanach competition on Yom Ha'atzmaut.

Here's a short clip from last year's International Chidon, which is broadcast live on Israeli television and a widely watched event:

Kol ha-kavod to Rabbi Lubetski for having introduced our Chidon program to the Junior High this year and to Moreh Shimshon Solemon who worked hard at preparing our students for this competition.  We wish them the best of luck in the next round!
