The international Torah competition known as JewQ has already received over 600 registrations from students in over 60 locations. Hebrew School children from around the globe — including Monaco, Canada, Denmark, Washington, D.C., and more — have enrolled to be part of the new Jewish learning competition run by CKids, a branch of Merkos 302.
JewQ invites students from Hebrew Schools around the world to learn and be tested on a wide range of Jewish knowledge, and receive a bundle of impressive rewards. Students sign up through their Hebrew Schools and participate in a learning period, along with tests quizzes, and a School Championships.
Winners of the School Championships, and high-scoring children from each school qualify for the CKids Shabbat in NYC in March 2019 / Adar I 5779, and have a chance to be crowned the ultimate JewQ winner at the International Championship. The CKids Shabbat will also include an action-packed weekend of Shabbat meals, activites, and a first-of-its-kind tour of Crown Heights.
