Feeling as playful as this adorable kitten? Then it’s time to give our quiz game a go. Trust us, it will be a ball!
On March 3 the host of “This American Life,” Ira Glass will celebrate his 54th birthday with his half-Iraqi wife, Anaheed Alan, whose father is Muslim.
On March 4 TV personality Whitney Port turns 28.
On March 7 the Austrian descended actress and Botox-hater, Rachel Weisz, turns 43.
On March 14 New York Yankee fan, Billy Crystal, turns 65.
On March 16 comedian Jerry Lewis turns 87. He inherited the funny-gene from his father, who was a vaudeville performer.
On March 19 film producer Harvey Weinstein turns 61.
On March 21 actor Matthew Broderick turns 51.
On March 22 actor William Shatner turns 82. He also took karate with Elvis and Steve McQueen … and was BFFs with Spock.

We can’t let the month of March “Passover” without testing your Jewish-celebrity knowledge with trivia so fun its almost more intriguing than a cute kitty playing with a plastic ball … almost. But by taking this pop-cultural pop quiz, you can find out which hip radio personality is turning 54 (!!!), which Jewish actress detests Botox, and which cast member of Star Trek speaks Vulcan and Hebrew.

As usual, get the answers to the below quiz by clicking through our above slideshow:

1) “We have the entire Middle East crisis in our house,” jokes this Jew of his half-Muslim wife. 2) This actress, whose Austrian-born parents fled to England before the outbreak of WWII, has very strong opinions about Botox, stating to “Harpers Bizarre” in 2009 “It should be banned for actors, as steroids are for sportsmen. Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown?” 3) Which Jewish lifelong Yankee fan is a part owner of the Arizona Diamondbacks, even earning a World Series ring when the Diamondbacks beat his beloved Yankees in 2001? 4) Which funny Hebrew’s father was a vaudeville performer? 5) Which Semitic actor took American Kenpo karate alongside Steve McQueen and Elvis Presley?
