J&JR Scavenger Hunt

This scavenger hunt is a shameless attempt to encourage people to familiarize themselves with Jewish and Israeli resources on the World Wide Web. I'm not offering prizes, I'm not collecting results. The goal is not to reach the destination, but to enjoy the journey. So take your time, wander around along the way, and have fun.

Release the hounds! Tally-ho!
