  • Yes, there are a ton of Jewish holidays and the traditions that go with them, and even the uber-faithful sometimes get them mixed up. Sukkot? Real or imaginary? Cholent? A type of festival, a stew, or both?

  • Jews have been entertaining the world at large for centuries. We have top contenders and players in just about every media: heayy hitters like Neil Simon, Steven Spielberg, Sarah Silverman, and Zac Efron are all Jewish! Can you name some others?

  • Jews in sports is not as rare as it sounds—ever heard of Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax?. In this book, we’ve included trivia on chess, poker, boxing, and even bullfighting. After all, any sport is meaningless without a little mental competition…and an angry bull or two.

  • Plus there are also hundreds of questions about science, medicine, business, and food, plus a fun game of Who Said That?: Famous Quotes.

And don’t forget, the Ultimate Jewish Trivia Book  makes a great gift and is sure to liven up any get-together!
