Shuvu Student wins 2nd Place in International Chess Tournament

Shuvu has focused on chess over the years and has even hosted grandmasters in our schools who have played against the students. But it seems we’re developing a grandmaster of our own! Remarkably, our 10 year old Shuvu Beit Shemesh 5th grade student Alex Zlatin is now 2nd place in the world for his age group! Earlier this year Alex won 4th place in Europe and now he has even surpassed that achievement.

This week Alex and his parents were invited to the office of Beit Shemesh Mayor Rav Moshe Abutboul who praised Alex for bringing such pride to their city!

The Shuvu Beit Shemesh principal Mrs. Esther Ackerman emphasized that they’re even more impressed with his achievements in school. His family is also very appreciative of what Shuvu is giving them, and Alex’s 2nd grade sister is in the school too!

The recent tournament took place in Romania , and hearing of the important visitor from Eretz Yisroel, the Chief Rabbi of Romania met with Alex during his stay!
