Girls Compete in Chidon Finale

395 girls were called to stage Sunday at the Chidon Sefer Hamitzvos final game show and competition, followed by an awards ceremony.

395 girls were called to stage Sunday at the Chidon Sefer Hamitzvos final event in Crown Heights.

The award ceremony, which immediately followed the Chidon final game show competition, celebrated the accomplishments of chayolim from around the world.

“Each of these kids is here because they devoted all of their free time over the past six months to learning Sefer Hamitzvos,” announced Rabbi Yehoshua Lustig, event MC and principal of Oholei Torah.

Three different awards were presented: 209 plaques were awarded to any chayol who earned at least a 70% on Thursday’s final test. The 186 finalists who earned at least an 85% received a medal. The highest honor, coveted trophies, a new addition to this year’s Chidon awards, were handed out to the highest-scoring chayolim in each grade: a total of 28 honored chayolim.

“There is no doubt that their efforts this year in learning Rambam are giving the Rebbe much nachas,” says Rabbi Zalman Glick, director of Living Lessons foundation, publisher of the Yahadus curriculum.

“We could not be more proud of each and every finalist,” adds Rabbi Yerachmiel Benjaminson, executive director of Tzivos Hashem.
