The World Bible Quiz

The 56th World Bible Quiz for Jewish Youth was held this year on the theme of “Maintaining Unity and Uniqueness.” This year 72 contestants, from 41 countries on 5 continents, participated in the World Bible Quiz in 17 languages.

Every year thousands of youngsters, aged 14-18, study for the Bible quiz in their own countries, many of them spending months on end preparing for the event. Every year dozens of representatives from Jewish communities around the world come to Israel for two weeks to participate in a fun, intensive and unique Bible Camp. This is an educational and social camp, where we learn about and emphasize the Bible, Eretz Yisrael, Jewish communities around the world, young Jewish leadership and other ethical and educational topics. The highlight of the Bible Camp is the World Bible Quiz for Jewish Youth, which is broadcast on Israel television on Independence Day (Yom Ha’atzma’ut). The Quiz increases the number of Jewish Bible students in Israel and the Diaspora, strengthens their love for Israel, adds a spiritual aspect to Independence Day and encourages educational interaction between Jewish youngsters from Israel and around the world. In cooperation with the Israeli Ministry of Education and other organizations, the Jewish Agency promotes the World Bible Quiz for Jewish Youth among Jewish communities around the world and coordinates the participation of youngsters in the Quiz.
