I’m thinking it is no great surprise that our first Eliyahu ben David Crossword Contest is on Targum Isaiah. And guess what the prize is that will be going to the winner? That’s right – an autographed copy of Tsiyon Edition Targum Isaiah in English – what else, right?
If you’re thinking “I’m no Targum scholar so this isn’t for me” then listen up. Most of the answers can be found in your KJV Bible. The few answers specific to Targum Isaiah are from recent Tsiyon programs, and, of course, Tsiyon Edition Targum Isaiah itself.
One other thing: you are free to just try the puzzle for fun if you want. No pressure here. 🙂
Giveaway Details for this Contest
A. Contest ends on April 30, 2012. The winner will be announced back here with an update to this post, and will be notified via email with further instructions.
B. The online puzzle includes a little help. You won’t be disqualified for using that if you want. The way we’ve done this, everyone can play. It’s more fun though, to do as much as you can without help. You’ll see what I mean when you work with the puzzle.
C. A winner will be selected from all entries using Random.org. You get your Primary Entry by emailing me a screenshot of your puzzle at postmaster[at]eliyahubendavid.com. Leaving me a comment on this post saying you completed the puzzle and sent it in will help me avoid errors.

What a fun crossword puzzle! It’s the easiet one I have every tried probably because I love the subject matter so much. Thanks for coming up with such a fun activity to help us see what we are learning. Looking forward to the next one!
What a great way to get us thinking about Yeshua and the Word. Finished but couldn’t email the crossword as I don’t have a computer right now (writing this from an iPad). It was well worth doing anyway just to put me in the right frame of mind!
Thanks for a great idea and way of getting us to focus on what really matters.
I won!!! This is amazing and I love your fruit in sending me a book all the way to Thailand. I’ll definitely review it on amazon.co.uk :))
Thank you!!! (Going to try the next one now…)
