Boys taking part in the ‘Kol Hatorah Kula’ track of the Chidon got a first glance at Tzivos Hashem’s newest project: TorahVR, where the Bais Hamikdosh and the mitzvos they learned are brought to life.

The Kol Hatorah Kula trip was for boys who had participated in Chidon for the past 4 years, completing all 613 mitzvos. As a reward, the boys came to New York to enjoy a full 3 day program of trips, visits to 770, the Ohel, and other locations.

On Monday night, after a full day of exciting programs, the boys gathered in JCM for supper, but the surprises were not over yet. During the meal, they were introduced to the revolutionary TorahVR program, which had just been announced at the ‘Double Event’ concert on Sunday, and has yet to hit the market.

The program brings viewers inside the Bais Hamikdash, or right next to the mitzvah they just learned about. It aims to brings all 613 mitzvos to life, making children feel like they are actually taking part in lighting the menorah, bringing a korban, or doing the mitzvah they just studied about.

During the coming year, the program will be made available to schools around the globe, and the plan is to have all mitzvos added over the coming years. But before it was even made public, the boys of the Chidon got their chance to see it, and hear about the uniqueness of the program from its creators.
