Trivia Quiz, Educational Resources and Cool Videos for the Jewish New Year

Hi Everyone!

Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year 5770,
begins Friday night, September 18, 2009.

The Jewish Trivia Quiz
has 55 multiple choice questions about 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 and two timer settings. Adults and children will find The Jewish Trivia Quiz entertaining and educational.

Whether you need a picture for your child's class project, a graphic for your synagogue, Hillel or JCC New Year announcement, the Jewish Clipart Database has the pictures for you. You can copy, save and print the graphics in three different sizes.
