Speaker of the Knesset Amir Ohana: “We have won a great privilege. The right to live in Jerusalem not next year but this year. And the duty we will be in next year as well. This is what we are fighting for. For the right to continue living in our country. Zionism’s biggest challenge is deepening its roots. This is the way to connect the people and their country.

“Only if we know our story, know the land of the Bible and the places where our ancestors went, only then will we know how to love the land. Our enemies know this and therefore try to distort history. But they will lose the battle and the battle for consciousness because the most powerful weapon on our side is the truth.”

Iris Haim, the mother of Yotam Haim who was accidentally shot by IDF forces, also came to judge the quiz and said: “We cannot fight only with weapons. That is not enough. The Bible is the spirit of the people of Israel. And we have him with us.”
