Instructions: For each definition supply the term in the box provided. Your reply is monitored by the "Answer Ghost."

  • If the Answer Ghost does not like what you have filled in, he will erase it. (The Answer Ghost does care about capital letters.)
  • If you get stuck, you can click in an "Uncle Box," and the answer will appear briefly.
    However, you might feel somewhat embarrassed at having had to "cry uncle."
  • If you use the "Uncle Box" too much, the Answer Ghost will turn the page yellow and call you a "cry baby" in the comment box at the end.
    You might, however, experience feelings of shame and inadequacy.
  • If you succeed in filling in all the boxes without being called a cry baby, the background color will change to show that the Answer Ghost is tickled pink. He will even say so in the comment box.
    Naturally, you will experience pride and joy.
  • Once the Answer Ghost brands you a cry baby, he will never be tickled pink with you unless you hit "Reset" and start again.
  • The results are instantaneous and are reported to nobody but you.

1. At most Passover Seder tables, there are a number of symbolic foods on the Passover Seder plate. However, at some Passover Seder tables, there are two versions of one of the symbolic foods on the Passover Seder plate. Name the second version of this symbolic food in Hebrew (Note: Due to computer programming limitations, I can only use one spelling version of the word or words for the answer, so if you know the answer, type various spellings of the word or words until you get the correct spelling of the word or words.)

2. Salt water is used as one of the symbolic foods at most Ashkenazic Passover Seder tables (Ashkenazim are Jews whose ancestors came from Central and/or Eastern Europe), however, for certain communities of Sephardim (Jews whose ancestors came from Spain and/or Portugal) and Mizrahim (Jews whose ancestors came from the Middle East and Asia in general), other types of liquids are used instead of salt water. Name three other types of liquids used (put a comma and a space after each name except the final name. Example: beef, chicken, brisket. Also, if you think you know the correct answers, try switching them around if the Answer Ghost says it is incorrect. Example: beef, chicken, brisket or chicken, brisket, beef or brisket, chicken, beef, etc. Due to computer programming limitations, I can only give one specific order of the three answers, meaning the three liquids, so that is why I'm asking you to switch the three answers around if the Answer Ghost answers that it is incorrect.)
