Two Australian high school students will be appearing live on Israeli television this Yom Ha’atzmaut after making it to the final 16 in the International Bible Quiz.
Chaim Ber Hirschowitz and Yehuda Eisenberg, both from Kesser Torah College in NSW, are currently in Israel after winning and coming runner up respectively in the Australian Bible Quiz last November.
At the time, winner Chaim said that he was honoured to be representing Australia in the International Bible Quiz, especially after witnessing his sister on stage in the finals in Israel two years ago. Now he is set to follow in her footsteps excelling in a written test which narrowed the pool from 70 participants to just 16.
Chaim and Yehuda have been on Tanach camp – meeting other Jewish students from around the world and travelling the country ahead of the televised Quiz this Sunday.
The Zionist Federation of Australia is incredibly proud of the pair for representing Australia over in Israel and wishes them good luck for Thursday.
