- David Ben Gurion often included biblical quotes from the Tanach (which was always on his desk) in speeches and letters. As Israel’s first Prime Minister, he founded Chidon HaTanach (חִידוֹן הַתּנ"ך), a worldwide Bible competition for all ages. The final round is a televised event in Jerusalem on Yom Ha’atzmaut. In the spirit of this legacy, let’s see how much we know about Israel as we celebrate another year of accomplishments and challenges, innovation, culture, and technology.
