Did you hear about the invisible man who married an invisible woman?

Their kids weren’t much to look at.

What city is home to the oldest Torah in the United States?

Savannah, Georgia. The deerskin Torah was brought there from England in 1733 by Jews who were originally from Portugal, Spain, and Germany. The sacred scroll is now kept on display by Congregation Mickve Israel, the synagogue they founded.

Happy Passover!

BEHIND THE SCENES

What it’s like to be a contestant on Jeopardy!

* Jeopardy! films five episodes—a week’s worth of shows—in one day. Because of this, contestants are told to bring three outfits with them in case they win a game and come back as the next episode’s “returning champion” on the next “day.”

* The player who comes in first gets to keep whatever money they win. Second-and third-place contestants get a flat fee: $2,000 for second place, $1,000 for third.

* Since the 1950s quiz-show scandals, FCC rules prohibit the host from interacting with contestants, as he may have prior knowledge of the day’s questions. So contestants do not meet or see host Alex Trebek until the taping begins and he saunters out onstage.

    FASCINATING TRIVIA !
    I NEVER would have guessed
    about the oldest Torah
    being in the Deep South !

    It would be SO COOL to be
    on Jeopardy !
    Do you recall the Golden Girls
    episode when Dorothy dreams of
    and actually tries out for it?
    One of my FAVES !
    It's EASY to shout out the answer
    in the comfort and ease of your
    living room, but must be stressful
    in front of a live audience !
    I know that I would FREEZE UP
    with FRIGHT- even with knowing
    the correct answer !
