The televised finals will feature the top 16 finalists include 3 Americans – Dani Peyser, Elisheva Friedman, and Asher Finklestein. You can watch the event live (albeit at 4am EDT) at http://www.iba.org.il (best viewed in Internet Explorer). The video is normally archived there shortly after the event, so you can also watch it later that day.
2) On Sunday May 11th, we will be offering an amateur webcast of the US Chidon closing assembly starting around 1:15 PM on our Ustream Channel – http://www.ustream.tv/channel/usa-chidon-hatanach-bible-contest. For those of you who recall last year’s webcast, this year’s will be similar video and audio quality. We hope that this webcast will help family and friends who cannot attend the event nevertheless feel connected to it.
