Seventh Grader Rami Knapp Develops ‘Parsha War’ Card Game

Rami Knapp, age 12 of Teaneck and a seventh grade student at RYNJ, is combining his passion for trivia, Torah and games to develop a brand new Torah card game in time for his upcoming Bar Mitzvah. The game is called “Parsha War” and is based on the Top Trumps series of card games in which players compete to collect as many cards as possible based on fun facts and numbers about the parsha.

Rami was always a bit of history and trivia wiz, a voracious reader from a young age, who memorized facts about presidents, geography and sports statistics. After being introduced to the Top Trumps series, he and his father, Rabbi Stephen Knapp, principal of the Hillel Yeshiva Elementary School in Deal, New Jersey, decided to create their own “Parsha War” game to learn basic fun facts about the 54 different parshiot of the Torah. Each card is color-coded according to the sefer of the Torah, has a unique picture relating to the theme of the Parsha and a number of different categories of trivia including: Parsha number, number of pesukim, number of mitzvot, number of times the parsha is read every year and number of times Moshe’s name is mentioned.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Rami make his Torah card game a reality – https://www.gofundme.com/parsha-war-jewish-children039s-card-game. Please help support this budding Torah scholar share his love of Torah and games with hundreds and thousands of other Jewish children!
