Tidbits from
Jewish history.

Yitzhak Rabin was

born in Jerusalem
in 1922. He was
one of the first
members of the
Palmach, the
Israeli under-
ground, which he
joined in 1940 and
where he served as
deputy commander
beginning in 1947.
During the War of
Independence, Mr.
Rabin was head of
the Harel Brigade,
one of the leaders in
fighting for
Jerusalem. After the
war he held various
military posts, and
in 1968 was named
Israeli ambassador
to the United
States. Today, he
serves as Israel's
prime minister.

ust because they're a reg-
ular part of school does
not mean quizzes have to
be boring. "Question of
the Week" is a case in point.
All you need to play are some
inquisitive minds.
Begin by making a schedule
of who will ask the question:
Mom the first week, Dad the
second week, eldest child the
next and so on. The designated
person's job is to come up with
a probing question on any Jew-
ish topic; everyone else's job is
to answer it.
It's up to you whether the is-
sue is pure fact (Where was
Yitzhak Shamir born?) or philo-

your own Israeli-Syrian peace
treaty, what would it say?). But
each question should require
some digging and thinking so
the game can carry through for
about a week.
Try asking the first question
at dinner on Monday night.
You also might want to write it
down and tape it on the refrig-
erator, or on a placard to be
placed on the kitchen table. Af-
ter the meal, everyone can be-
gin researching: at the library,
in Jewish books at home, talk-
ing to friends at school.
Each person should have his
answer ready by dinner the

next Monday evening. If you're
one of those families who leaves
the television on during meals,
now is a good time to turn it off
and have a great discussion
about the question at hand, in-
stead.
It's a nice idea to have a little
treat for the winner — and
prizes for everyone else who
made an effort, too.
You can use your imagina-
tion to come up with questions,
or try looking in just about any
Jewish encyclopedia. The Ency-
clopedia Judaica is always an
excellent resource, and can be
found at most synagogue and
temple libraries.

hether you're one of the many adult Detroiters de-
termined to learn Hebrew this year, or somebody
.just a little bit younger and still in Hebrew school,
you'll find making an aleph-bet notebook a fun and
easy way to help you learn the language.
Begin by cutting out the letters of the aleph-bet and plac-
ing them (about one for every three pages) in your notebook.
As your Hebrew vocabulary increases, look through magazines

new notebook, under the letter which begins the word.
If you're studying aleph, for example, and learn the word aryeh,
sort through magazines for a picture of a lion. This will help you both
learn the aleph-bet and increase your vocabulary.

July is famous for being
hot in more ways than
one.
In addition to the
weather, July is National
Hot Dog Month. Every-
body knows there's noth-
ing in the world as tasty
as a hot dog, so why not
plan .a kosher cookout
and invite all your
friends? See who can
come up with the most
unusual — but still edi-
ble — topping (you may
think blueberries with
hot dogs sounds delicious,
but it hasn't really caught
on in the rest of the
world). Possibilities: chili,
vegetarian baked beans
(both Heinz and Bush of-
fer tasty, kosher vari-
eties), onions, crushed
corn or potato chips,
tomatoes, relish.
Another evening you
might want to celebrate
yet another important oc-
casion: July also is Na-
tional Ice Cream Month,
and there are any num-
ber of yummy kosher ice
creams out there. If
you're not sick of your
friends from the hot-dog
get-together, invite them
back for an ice-cream
sundae party. Pass on the
onions this time, but con-
sider expanding your
usual chocolate-and-cher-
ry topping to some of the
following: crushed
pineapple, fresh raspber-
ries, maple syrup,
whipped cream, jelly, can-
dy bar bits. Or add vanil-
la ice cream to Vernor's
for an old-fashioned
Boston Cooler. (Even
non-Michigan natives
who have yet to under-
stand the Vernon's craze
can't resist this taste
treat.)
