Thank you to the 150 National Finalists who participated in this Sundays event. You could feel the energy in the room as 150 National Finalists from around the country came together for one day to display their mastery of over seventy chapters of the Tanach. Each contestant received a beautiful certificate, a commemorative Tanach, and even had the chance to share some of their favorite pesukim with us on the wall. Over 350 people attended our closing ceremony! For those who were at the event and want to relive it and for those who missed out, we have some stunning pictures taken by our professional photographer David Khabinsky that can be found here.
