How to play the game

I was amazed at the following story (from here).

Apparently, the winner of this year's Tanach competition is Yishai Gispan who won by a single point. That is not the amazing part. During the competition, he turned to the judges and asked them to reconsider the points he received for a previous answer. Apparently, he felt the he DID NOT DESERVE the full score!

Has anyone heard of something like this happening before? I have not. It shows tremendous yashrut and strength of character to do what Yishai did.

Yashar Koach and let us pray that our educational institutions will continue to produce kids who not only have knowledge of the Torah but have also integrated the Torah's underlying message!
