(Ravi Joshi/Tablet Magazine)

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (provided he or she emails me at with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “Howard,” who wrote, on the question of whether quinoa is properly considered kosher for Passover, “Wheat, barley, spelt, rye, oats—all the rest is commentary, and rather annoying commentary at that.” He adds, “We’ve been honorary Sephardim (the honor is self bestowed) in this regard for many years, and feel not a twinge of guilt.” I, too, am Sephardic for eight days every year.

Since he quotes Hillel (or at least paraphrases him), he gets the biography by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin.
