Effective August 31st, I am stepping down as coordinator of the US Chidon. It has been a wonderful experience over the past 7 years to see our best and brightest youth study Tanach with such passion. I am excited to inform you that the Jewish Agency has found an excellent new coordinator, Dovi Nadel. Dovi is a former Chidon champion himself and is currently studying toward a Masters degree in Bible at Yeshiva University. Dovi has assisted me at the Chidon finals for several years, so he understands the event’s inner workings. I am confident that his love of Tanach in general and the Chidon in particular will leave the US Chidon in good hands.
