We had three of four possible winners. Congratulations to Michael Rosen, Dan Schaffer and Gary Shaw. We'll have other book contests in the future.

Win Free books

In cooperation with Sunbelt Publications,  San Diego Jewish World is giving away free books to winners of its contests on San Diego Jewish history.  If you answer our questions right, you’ll get a gift certificate from Sunbelt Publications for $25.  This may be used to pay for both a book and shipping, or, in the case of higher priced items, may be put toward the cost of purchase.  To see the books offered by Sunbelt, please click here.

The first test, open to people who have not won previous contests, requires you to send to SDJW editor Donald H. Harrison at editor@sandiegojewishworld.com the answer to the following question:

This linked directory lists public schools, charter schools and education centers in the City of San Diego. Some are named after people who were members of the Jewish community.   Name any  two that were named for Jews.

We will award books to the first four winners,  Watch for winners' names to be posted above this space.
