Dan Carlinsky Emerges as an Informative
Fact-Finder in New The Jewish Quiz Book

Dan Carlinsky proves his
skill as a fact-finder in a
most instructive work, "The
Jewish Quiz Book"
(Doubleday).
Every conceivable topic of
Jewish interest is included
in this book of questions, to
all of which the author has
provided the answer.
It is worth noting Car-
linsky's explanatory intro-
ductory note about this
book, in which he states:
"This is not a serious book
about the Jewish religion.
Nor about Jewish culture or
history. This is simply a fun
book for anyone who eats
bagels and cream cheese on
Sunday mornings.
"It's a quiz book about
who's Jewish and what's
Jewish, Jewish singers and
Jewish boxers, Jewish
quotes and Jewish jokes, Is-
raeli" geography and Yid-
dish curses, chopped liver
and the Marx Brothers. In a
phrase, Jewish pop. Plenty
of it.
"Add some tests and puz-
zles on Jewish holidays and
the Bible, on rabbis and
prayers, and you have more
than 1,100 questions and

answers on things Jewish.
"The quizzes are meant to
make you kvell (when you
know the answer), to tan-
talize you (when you don't
but are sure you once did), to
instruct you (when you look
it up).
"There's no scoring sys-
tem. The best way to judge
your performance is to read
the questions to someone
else. Whoever says, `Aha!
You don't know that?" most
often is the winner.
"Read it in good health."
In the process of compil-
ing questions and providing
the answers, Carlinsky also
entertains. Thereby he em-
phasizes the facts and be-
comes most informative.
For an appreciation of his
creative labors, the follow-
ing excerpts offer an under-
standing and appreciation
of "The Jewish Quiz Book":

1. Did Albert Einstein
win a Nobel prize?
2. What Jewish writer de-

A Martian spaceship
lands on the Lower East
Side, right in the street.
Two little green men
emerge, each with three
eyes and a tail. They march
into a bakery.
"What are those little
wheels in the window?"
asks one Martian of Os-
trovsky the baker.
"Wheels?" laughs Os-
trovsky. "Those ain't wheels
- they're bagels, to eat. I
guess where you come from,
you don't know from bagels.
Here try an onion bagel."
The first Martian sinks
his teeth in and smacks his
lips. The second Martian
does the same.
"Hey, delicious!" says the
first Martin to his pal. "I'll
say!" agrees the second."

Egypt has reportedly joined
in criticizing President
Jimmy Carter's foreign pol-

According to Newsweek

ing bold diplomatic initia-
tives.

Remember
Hebrew School?

No? Well, here's a He-
brew test for people who
don't really know Hebrew.
Most of the questions deal
with the kind of knowledge
that's picked up outside the
Hebrew classroom. Try
theni.
1. Jews frequently say
"Mazel tov!" when they
mean "Congratulations!"
Literally, however the
phrase means . . .?
2. What's the usual re-
"Shalom
sponse
to
aleichem!"
3. What's the difference
between "L'chaim!" (the
universal Jewish toast) and
"A votre sante!" (the French
"Cheers!")?
4. Rosh Hashana, you
know, is the Jewish New
Year. But what do the words
mean literally?
5. The Seder is the
Passover ritual meal. What
does that word mean?
6. In prayer, God's name
is Adonai. What substitute
name is used in rehearsing
prayers, to avoid pronouric-
ing the divine name?
7. What Hebrew word re-
fers to both a synagogue ac-
tivity and a certain type of
voyage?
8. Israel's national an-
them is "Hatikva," meaning
. .
9. Surely you know of El
Al, Israel's national airline.
But what does that name
signify?
10. With what do you
associate the Hebrew
phrase ma nishtana?
