Mark Your Calendars!

December 24, 2015

This year’s national Chidon Ha’Tanakh competition will be held at Manhattan Day School on May 15, 2016.Thanks to all of those who provided me with extremely valuable feedback about the previous regional test and for those who contacted me about their date preferences for the national competition. 

Otherwise, here’s an additional reminder that our next Hebrew Regional Test will be on February 3rd covering the entirety of Shemuel Bet.

Also, stay tuned for an exciting addition to the Chidon. I hope to post installments of 1-2 Chidon questions every week starting the new calendar year.

First Regional Test

December 1, 2015
The first regional test has been sent out. If you have not received the test, please be in touch with me immediately at
Some Directions for the Regional Test
Please allow no more than 45 minutes for the test.
A reminder that the questions are not to be read to them and nothing can be translated other than hebrew words in the question that are not part of a direct quotation from Tanakh.
Unless you have emailed me directly please ensure that the tests are administered and the grades reported to me by Wednesday, December 9th.
Please report scores as a composite score out of 25.
The test has been checked by more than one set of eyes and I hope that there are no mistakes/errors. If, however, you notice anything that does appear to be a mistake please do not hesitate to notify me immediately. I would also love to hear yours and your students thoughts/comments/and feedback about this test.
Best of luck to all the “Chidoners” out there on the first regional test!
