Fifty-eight Jewish youngsters from twenty-six different countries throughout the world took part in the 50th International Bible Quiz, which, as tradition decrees, was held on Israel’s Independence Day. The following day all the participants set out together on foot and bicycle to explore some of the places they had studied during the run-up to the quiz: for three days they enjoyed excursions, tours and other activities organized by KKL-JNF’s Education and Youth Division, visiting sites such as Adullam-France Park, the Burma Road and Latrun. In Adullam-France Park in the Judean Plain they met up with a group of youngsters from a high school in Efrat, an encounter that enabled them to experience not only Israel’s physical scenery but also its human landscape, in the shape of young Israelis their own age. KKL


The opportunity to meet Jewish youngsters from different parts of the world was one of the highlights of both the Bible Quiz and the activities with KKL-JNF that followed it. Eighteen-year-old Michelle Carasso of Brazil told us: “I’ve visited Israel in the past, but meeting other young Jews from all over the world has shown me that, although each one of us is different, we’re similar nonetheless. Even though we come from different places that are far away from one another and we speak different languages, we all love the Bible and Israel.” Carasso added that as a result of this formative experience she is now keener than before to immigrate and make her home in Israel.
