Amos Hakham Passes Away at 91

August 3, 2012

We mourn the passing of Amos Hahkam, who overcame tremendous hardships to win the first International Chidon ever, in 1958, and went on to write 8 volumes of the Daat Mikra commentary to the Bible.  For more about Hahkam and his inspiring life story, see his Hebrew Wikipedia entry and the Israeli media’s coverage of his passing in Maariv.
