Two Phoenix middle school students have qualified as finalists in this year’s National Chidon HaTanach (National Bible Contest) competition. Moshe Ullman and Chaim Ungar are both sixth-graders at Torah Day School of Phoenix (TDSP). Ullman and Ungar are Arizona’s first-ever representatives in this prominent event.
Founded by Israel’s first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, Chidon HaTanach is a worldwide competition on Tanach for middle- and high-school students. There are currently dozens of Hebrew schools and Jewish day schools across the country participating in the national contest.
