This great achievement has solidified for them the opportunity to represent Australia at the International Bible Quiz next year in Israel.

A college spokesperson said: “Our boys couldn’t have achieved such a great outcome without Lea Behar (Kesser Torah teacher) who has been the driving force behind the KTC Bible Quiz team – motivating, encouraging and coaching the boys over the past few months. We are equally as proud of all the boys in the team – Shlomo Ulman, Rafi Franklin, Daniel Tabib and Koby Berkovits – who put in hours and hours of study in preparation for the Quiz.

College Principal Roy Steinman added: “I have watched the Bible Quiz over many years now and was really disappointed when it fell off the agenda of the Jewish Community. I welcome its return and encourage all schools to take part in this extraordinary competition next year. We should aim for maximum participation. Naturally, I am very proud of our Kesser Torah College students who won. I want to take this opportunity to thank the Zionist Federation of Australia for their support in restarting the competition after a number of years and for their coordination throughout the year. In particular, Dr. Ron Weiser, who sees the strategic importance of the Australian Jewish Community being represented at the International Finals competition in Israel.

We can’t wait to see the boys compete at the International Bible Quiz next year in Israel.”
