Israel Trivia: Are You Smarter Than DBG?

In David Ben-Gurion’s speeches and letters, he often included biblical quotes from the Tanach (which was always on his desk). As Israel’s first Prime Minister, he founded Chidon HaTanach (חידון התנ”ך), “Bible Quiz”, a worldwide competition for all ages. The final quiz is an annual televised event held in Jerusalem on Yom Ha’atzmaut.

In the spirit of this legacy, let’s see how much we know about Israel as we celebrate 75 years of accomplishments and challenges, innovation, culture, and technology. Fingers on buzzers… for these competitive trivia quizzes!


These challenges feature Israeli culture, geography, history, current events, and more! Be sure to try out the  “Israel at 75” quiz, created to celebrate Israel’s 75th year of independence!
