On Sunday 26th January, Hasmonean triumphed at the national High School Bible Quiz 2020, which was held at The Pillar Hotel. Hundreds of students from Jewish High Schools around the country came together to compete.
At stake were 12 places in the Junior and Senior levels. The senior winners were awarded a free trip to Israel to attend the annual World Bible Quiz on Israel Independence, which is televised live around the world.
Hasmonean’s very own Rabbi Fachler compèred the quiz with his usual aplomb, and the quiz was judged by Rabbi Zobin of Ner Yisroel and Immanuel College, Rabbi Pollak of PAJES, JFS and LSJS, and our very own Rabbi Landau.
The questions were exceptionally difficult and after four gruelling rounds, the winners emerged. The top three of both categories were Hasmonean students!
Congratulations to all the teacher who worked with the students, and a very special thank you to Rabbi Silverman, whose dream came true when Hasmonean topped the ranks!
