Free educational resources for the Jewish New Year

Hi Everyone!

Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year 5768, begins
Wednesday night, September 12, 2007.

The J Site - Jewish Education and Entertainment

has several entertaining features to celebrate the new year:

Jewish Trivia Quiz: Rosh Hashana

Which special prayer is said in the days before Rosh Hashana ?
Which group of foods is customary to eat on Rosh Hashana ?
What are the other three names of Rosh Hashana ?
How many times is the shofar sounded during Rosh Hashana ?
Which food is customary NOT to eat on Rosh Hashana ?

The above questions are examples from the multiple choice
Flash quiz. There are two levels of questions, two timer settings.
Both kids and adults will find it enjoyable.

Additional Rosh Hashana resources and games on the J site include:

Free Rosh Hashana Clipart
The Multilingual Word Search Game (English / Hebrew / Russian)
The Hebrew Hangman Game
My Hebrew Songbook (Hebrew Song Lyrics)
My Jewish Coloring Book (online / offline)

The J site has something for everyone, but if that is not enough, I posted on my website 86 links about Rosh Hashana, from laws and customs to games and recipes.
Site languages include English, Hebrew, French, German, Italian, Portugese, Russian and Spanish.

All 86 links have been reviewed / checked this week.
