Answers to common questions you might have about Chidon

What is Chidon?

“Chidon” is short for the Chidon Sefer Hamitzvos – International Championship. It is a worldwide competition between thousands of Jewish children who learn the 613 Mitzvos of the Torah in depth. They study hard all year, take three tests to prove their knowledge, and if they qualify, are invited to join an exclusive school trip or the world-class Chidon Shabbaton!

The Shabbaton climaxes with an incredible game show pitting representatives from each member  school (also known as a “Chidon base”) against each other, and finally, with the glitziest award ceremony you’ve ever seen awarding hundreds of Chidon champions with personalized plaques, medals, and actual trophies!
