It was a great week and we had lots of fun.
Thanks to everyone who contributed and especially to the amazing conveners, Yarden Olivero and Haya Eichler.

We would also like to thank Ben Gurion University for their financial support, as well as "Sia'h vaSig", for donating the financial prizes and subsidizing the arrival of additional excellent judges.
Hope to see you all again soon!
