Israel Patent Attorney and US Patent Agent, friend and neighbour, Yaakov Shatz, went through to the finals of the third Israel Bible Quiz for Adults on Tuesday. He was, however, knocked out in the penultimate round by a younger candidate, Menachem Shamshi, shown standing between the Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, and the Minister for Education, Rabbi Shai Piron. Yaakov is a former Winner of the Israel Bible Quiz for Youth and of the IDF Bible Quiz.
If this was the IPKAT, I would note that Old Deuteronomy is an ancient, wise cat who has “lived many lives in succession. Yaakov is certainly a wise patent attorney.
