Six students bound for New York City
They will join 8000 Jewish students from all over the world in a competition that tests their memory, commitment and critical thinking skills
Six Kesser Torah College (KTC) students are about to fly to New York City to compete in an international Judaism competition.
More than 100 KTC students in years 4 to 8 are currently participating in the global Chidon Sefer Hamitzvot competition.
Rabbi Yehuda Straiton leads the program at the school, and is proud to be accompanying the six high school boys to New York, as deserving entrants into the tournament, having prepared for it for the past five years, over and above the regular school curriculum.
They will join 8000 Jewish students from all over the world in a competition that tests their memory, commitment and critical thinking skills applied to the study of the 613 mitzvot in the Torah.
