 The Israel Quiz is an annual contest run under the auspices of the Israel Centre and the SA Zionist Federation, to foster a deep love for Israel, an understanding of the history of the modern state and also to teach Israel advocacy to South African Jewish youth, Israel Centre said in a media release.

The finals, which are always very entertaining, were held at the Edward Nathan Sonnenberg auditorium in Sandton and were extremely well attended, said Rabbi Steven Krawitz.

Moshe saw off stiff competition when in the final round the last three contestants used their in-depth knowledge of Israel to answer questions in a true battle of wits and nerves.

Yossi Band from King David Victory Park came second and Elie Joffe from Torah Academy third. Fourth place went to Deena Katzen of King David Linksfield and fifth place to Daniel Teeger of Yeshiva College.

The learners answered questions on Israeli history, wars, policies, society, culture, defence force, sporting and scientific achievements.
