KOSHER QUIZ BY NATHAN JEFFAY

The Jewish Chronicle - - KOSHER -

1. Which Bri­tish kosher food com­pany be­gan in 1900, started by a York­shire watch-maker with a pas­sion for matzah bak­ing? 2. Which Amer­i­can sausage com­pany has played on its kosher iden­tity for the last 50 years with the slo­gan “We an­swer to a higher au­thor­ity”. (Iron­i­cally, a large pro­por­tion of Amer­ica’s Ortho­dox Jews do not ac­cept the su­per­vi­sion of this firm and there­fore con­sider it non-kosher.) 3. When Golda Meir was Prime Min­is­ter of Is­rael, she used to con­vene her cab­i­net in her kitchen and serve them with what home­made sweet treat? 4. In 2005, the White House be­gan hav­ing its kitchens koshered for a cer­tain an­nual event. What is the event? 5. Which Euro­pean coun­try over­turned a ban on she­chi­tah in De­cem­ber 2014, caus­ing wide­spread re­lief among its Jewish pop­u­la­tion?

The Bi­ble, in Ex­o­dus 12, gives two op­tions of an­i­mals for the Passover sac­ri­fice. What are they?
