We provide a Jewish General Knowledge handbook for all students in Year 5 which contains all the information that pupils will need to answer the questions in the quiz. (We are indebted to Rabbi Ebrahimoff and the Independent Jewish Day School for allowing us to use their guide as the basis for the Etgar handbook.)
This annual event was launched in July 2013 with a competition for over 200 children, and more than 450 children attended the second Etgar Challenge in July 2014. The Emeritus Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks and His Excellency Daniel Taub, the Israeli Ambassador spoke and presented prizes. The event has continued to grow and has been attended by many dignitaries including the current Chief Rabbi and the Israeli Ambassador. Last year’s event in 2023 was attended by almost 1,000 children, from 28 schools from across the UK.
