Rabbi loses title on ‘Jeopardy!’


(JTA) — Rabbi Joyce Newmark of New Jersey failed to defend her title on the television game show "Jeopardy!"

Newmark, a Conservative rabbi and a member of Congregation Beth Sholom in Teaneck, N.J., lost on a show aired Tuesday night after easily defeating two other opponents the previous night and winning $29,200.

As is her general practice, Newmark, 63, wore a yarmulke during both tapings.
