May 18, 2011 | 5:16 pm

Rabbi Joyce Newmark 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.
