About Etgar

Etgar is a Jewish education program that inspires a love of learning among children in Jewish primary schools through an exciting, team-based inter-school quiz for pupils in Year 5 (10 years old).

Etgar produces a richly illustrated, highly-engaging handbook of Jewish General Knowledge. This handbook is provided to every child in Year 5 in participating schools.

Now in its 6th year, over 1000 children from 29 schools across the UK, and a school from Israel participate in the Etgar Challenge. Etgar is expanding internationally and is now running in South Africa, Canada, Australia and Hungary.
