Nationwide Quiz a Big Hit

Reports gathered from the 14 teams participating in ESRA's first ever nationwide quiz indicate that this will become an annual event. As well as providing a fun evening for branches all over the country, the event raised over NIS 10,000 for ESRA's Bayit Cham projects. 

Taking part were teams from Eilat, Givatayim, Herzliya, Karmiel, Kfar Saba, Kfar Yona, Modiin, Nahariya, Netanya, Raanana (Croop/Gould), Raanana (Shulman), Raanana (Hunter), Ramat Aviv and Tiberias.
Local quiz masters in each venue read out the same questions at the same time, and results were sent back to Quiz Headquarters at the Shulman's home in Raanana. The scoring was close all the way through, with the winners scoring an amazing 76 points out of a possible 80. Well done to all the winning Netanya team, Nancy Kramer (quiz master), Aliza Marks, Heather and Yudke Friedman, Barbara and Steve Kliner, Carol and Norman Kaye, Esther and Jack Tolkin, Henry and Ros Ben Ezra, Jacqui Waterman, Joan Weisman, Norma and Mike Altman, Susan and Pinchas Kurnedz, Lynn Ross, Adrian and Jackie Korsner.
Kudos to Glenis Bertfield, whose brainchild it was, to the question writers, Brian Fink and Ralph Barnett, to those that helped with logistics, David Shulman and Frankie Cronin, and to all the hosts and quiz masters in the various locations.

'Our score may have been bottom, but I bet we were top for laughs!'
