Over 120,00 people tuned in from around the world to watch Chidon 2020. Watch the rerun of this year’s Chidon. Plus: Who are trophy winners of 5780?
Remember the year 2019? It seems like a lifetime ago – schools were open, stores were bustling, parks were full.
One thing is the same this year, though. Though Covid-19 has forced us indoors, the Sefer Hamitzvos Chidon still went on! Chidon 2020 had the largest audience yet – over 12,000 people tuned in from around the world.
The live streamed program included an interactive gameshow for the 460 finalists, an awards ceremony for all participants, and live entertainment from Eli Marcus, Avraham Fried, Benny Friedman, and Chony Milecki.
Through the challenging circumstances of the past weeks, the over 3594 chidon finalists studied more than even. Though under physical quarantine, they certainly curb their diligence and enthusiasm.
Viewers of the game show could see their efforts pay off; finalists displayed dazzling mastery of the countless intricate details of all 613 mitzvos.
Congratulations goes to the talented and dedicated winners!
