Breslover chossid Eran Hochberg tied with a former world chess champion at a Yerushalayim tournament organized by Israel’s Chess Union.

“I was debating whether to accept the union’s request to compete in the chess tournament,” Hochberg, who was Israel’s junior Chess champion from 1972-1974, said“I stopped playing completely at the age of 16, when I decided not to devote my life to chess, and later returned to Judaism when I was 18.”

“But upon being invited to the tournament, I thought that … the [Torah] sector might gain respect through this. That’s what I thought and prayed during the game.”
