Sixth-graders Aidan G. and Andrew S. from Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School in Baltimore took first and third place, respectively, in the 6th/7th grade English Middle School division of the American Chidon HaTanach national competition in New York this month. The Chidon HaTanach is a contest on Tanach (the Jewish bible) for middle and high school students, wherein they are given certain chapters to study before the event and then asked questions on the material at the competition. Thirty-four Beth Tfiloh students qualified and 29 competed in the national competition — the largest delegation in the country!
