2021 Regional Test
For the first time, all students across Canada will be writing the Regional test together, virtually, on the same date. Scoring will still be regionally based.
DATE Wednesday March 3, 2021
TIME 6:00 – 8:30 PM (approx.)
PLACE Virtual (details to be confirmed)
CYCLE “B”* with Koren Tanach English translation
*We have updated the cycles and the study chapters in each cycle have changed. Please only refer to the Cycle list available here.
Please see our registration page to register online.
We will be using a different English translation for the tests this year. We will be using the KOREN TANACH translation for all materials this year. Study packs which use this translation are available here. The advantage of the study packs is that students can print them out and write their own notes in the margins (we left some space for this purpose).
If you wish to purchase a Koren Tanach, you can receive a 10% discount at Aleph Bet Judaica in Toronto or Victoria Gift Shop & Hebrew Bookstore in Montreal if you mention ‘Bible Contest Canada’. Participants in other Canadian cities can contact Aaron Katchen for a similar discount.

ABOUT CHIDON CANADA
With over 300 participants each year, the Canadian National Bible Contest allows our students to increase their connection with the Jewish People, their love of the Land of Israel, their love of Tanach.
What better way to encourage students to study and learn the Tanach than by involving them in the Bible Contest!
