Mazal tov to SKA students Breindy Berger and Ahuva Cohen who placed as finalists in Chidon HaTanach – The Dr. Shimshon Isseroff US National Bible Contest for Jewish Youth! As part of their independent learning for SKA’s innovative program, RISE (Reach with Independent Learning, Scholars, and Enriching Experiences), the girls studied Tanach throughout the year and achieved high grades on all sections of the exam.

The virtual National Finals ceremony took place on Sunday, June 7, where the finalists were announced.

Thanks go to SKA Limudei Kodesh teacher Mrs. Beaty Menchel for her terrific coaching, and to Dr. Chana Glatt, Head of SKA’s Science Department and the RISE program for her support.
