When it comes to thinking about the different types of hot women out there, a lot of things come to mind. A lot of guys like blondes, some like brunettes, some guys are driven crazy by women that are Asian, and some like women that are a bit ethnic looking. One thing that guys don't usually say is "Jewish women are hot". To be honest you don't usually hear guys say Jewish women are not hot either, it is just something that most men don't seem to think about when it comes to hot ladies.
Well I am here to tell you that might be a mistake. I have scoured the web for the hottest Jewish women in the world, and I have to say that what I found might surprise you, I certainly know that it surprised me. Some of these women you already knew were hot - you just did not know that they were Jewish. Some others on this list you may not have ever heard of, but know that now that you have you are going to be thinking about them for a long time. In fact, you're going to be thinking about just how hot all of these women are for a very long time. And you probably won't remember that they're Jewish, left or right-handed or are even from this planet; they are that hot.
And why is that? Because these Jewish girls are crazy, smoking hot. I was born an Irish Catholic (Hey, don't hold it against me, I haven't thought a whole lot about religion since I was 5 years old) but I have to say, after checking out this list I might be thinking of converting. Just don't tell my mom, whatever you do. Anyway, here are 15 of the hottest women you didn't know were Jewish.
15 Bar Paly
Let's start off with Bar Paly, shall we? Why would we start with her you might ask? Well let's see, I don't know. Let me think...well, she is Jewish and she is also absolutely ridiculously smokin' hot. If you take a quick look (or a really long one) at her photo, I probably do not have to explain that she is a model. She was born in Russia, and moved to Israel when she was just 7 years old. Like most women that model and are totally hot she also dabbles a bit in acting and has appeared in How I Met Your Mother and Roman Coppola’s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. Most of the time she just makes her living being hot. She is married to a doctor who I am sure is either envied or hated by all of his friends.
14 Bar Refaeli
Bar is almost too hot it's hard to believe she's real. She has been modeling since she was 8 months old, and has been the cover model on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in the past, as well as being voted #1 on Maxim's top 100 list in 2012. She is one of the most successful and highest earning models in the history of Israel, which would kind of make sense because she is so amazing looking. I mean, how could someone that looks like this be anything but a model? She grew up in Israel on a horse ranch and her mother was a successful model in her own right back in the '70s. Bar managed to avoid being in the Israeli army, for which she has received a fair amount of criticism. She is truly a big deal in her homeland, and has appeared in many TV shows and is also active in many different business ventures.
13 Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett is very attractive and is considered one of Hollywood's true sex symbols. She has been on numerous lists in websites and magazines of the sexiest women in the world, such as Maxim, FHM and Playboy. I have to think the one she is most proud of is this list on TheRichest, though. You are welcome, Scarlett. She was raised in a Jewish family in New York City, but not a wealthy one; it was said that they had very little money. She has worked with Woody Allen a lot. She once said "I just adore Woody. We have a lot in common. We're New Yorkers, Jewish. We have a very easygoing relationship." One thing they do not have in common is their looks as Scarlett is truly one of the hottest chicks around. She started acting when she was just 10 years old.
12 Emmy Rossum
Most of you know Emmy from being that totally hot chick that was in the movie Phantom of the Opera, but she has had a very long career and has appeared in many other movies as well. But the keys to being on this list are not one's career, but the words "hot" and "Jewish", and Emily has both of those things pretty much down cold. She also is a singer, and has put out a few successful albums. Speaking of singers she was dating the lead singer of the Counting Crows, Adam Duritz, for a while. Adam is not hot, not even a little bit. What is it about that guy? It seems every time one turns around he is dating someone that is way out of his league. When it comes to Emily though, he has a lot of company, as she is out of pretty much anyone's league.
11 Moran Atias
Here is something that you may not know, Moran is really hot. She was born in Israel, where she once wanted to join the Israeli army, but she couldn't do so because she had meningitis when she was 17 years old. So this seemed to work out for everyone, because instead of fighting in an army we all get to see how hot she is. Well, I guess it did not work out for the Israeli soldiers she would have been fighting with. She has been in a few movies and is on the cast of the show Tyrant which is on the FX network. She also does a fair amount of humanitarian work. But hey, let's get back to what is important, and get away from all these boring details. Moran is an incredibly beautiful woman, which is why she makes this list. Well, that and the whole Jewish thing, of course.
10 Dianna Agron
Dianna grew up in a Jewish family in the suburbs of San Francisco. Although she is originally from Georgia. One of her parents was a hotel manager so she spent a lot of time in hotels growing up. Although she is still quite young she has already had a long career in the business. She made her television debut as Jessica Grant on CSI: NY. Agron had recurring roles on Veronica Mars as Jenny Budosh, and Heroes as Debbie Marshall. Most of you know her from her role as the cheerleader Quinn Fabray on the TV show Glee. The family is originally from Russia, and when they came over on the boat the family name, which was originally Agronsky, was changed by Ellis Island officials. Really? Who does that? Anyway, Dianna is gorgeous, and deserves a spot on this or any other list where hot women are being discussed.
9 Yael Bar Zohar
All right, we have to say that as hot as these other women are so far on this list, Yael really is upping the ante a bit. The other women need to step up their games. She was born in Tel Aviv, Israel and started modeling at age 15 when she started wearing bathing suits and also filmed a commercial. While most of the other women on this list, even ones that are originally from Israel, moved away for their careers, Yael has stayed at home, and is married to an Israeli actor. We have to assume that Yael is absolutely the hottest woman in Israel. If you know of anyone hotter that still lives there I would ask that you prove it to me by sending photos of her to my email. And if you could do that as soon as possible I would greatly appreciate it.
8 Alona Tal
Alona is an actress from Israel who is best known for her roles in Veronica Mars and Supernatural. Do you you recall in a previous entry where I said that Morian Atias was going to be in the Israeli army but could not get in because of a medical condition? Well Alona actually was in the Israeli army. All right, she is hot and also a BAMF. She has my utmost respect. She started off in Israel doing a commercial for a laundry detergent, then got a role in a movie and a couple of TV shows before moving to New York City in search of her big break which she got when she landed a role on Veronica Mars. Alona is another of the women on this list who are not only gorgeous and sexy, but seem tough as nails as well. Speaking for all men, we approve.
7 Kat Dennings
We like Kat Dennings. She is hot, but yet she seems kind of normal. Her measurements are 40-27-34, and we like that as well. If you skimmed over that, go back and read it slowly. Kat likes manga, cheese, and baby animals. Are you in love yet? I know that I am. She was raised in Pennsylvania, and was home-schooled. Her family is Jewish, which should probably go without mentioning at this point, but hey, sometimes you really have to spell it out for people. Some of the many movies she has appeared in include The 40-year-old Virgin, The House Bunny, Big Momma's House 2 and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. She has said that "Judaism is an important part of my history, but, as a whole, religion is not a part of my life." Well Kat, you are an important part of all of our lives. Don't go changin'."
6 Esti Ginzburg
Let's get away from Hollywood and back into Israel shall we? Esti is a very successful model from Israel. She has modeled in international campaigns for brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry, FCUK, Pull and Bear, and Castro. She was also featured in the 2009, 2010, and 2011 editions of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She also was in the Israeli army and said "Military service is part of the things I personally believe in." This is a good thing, as most of us would love to see her in a military uniform. Or any uniform really; we aren't picky. Her father is an architect and her grandfather was one of the people responsible for designing Zahala. She started modeling at the age of 8 and by the time she was 14 years old she had signed a contract with Elite, which is one of the top modeling agencies in the world, which of course makes sense as Esti is gorgeous.
5 Emmanuelle Chriqui
While she has been in many things, Emmanuelle is best known as the girl that hangs with E on the show Entourage. She was born in Montreal, but her parents are both from Morocco, and practicing Jews. She has relatives in Israel. She started acting as a 10-year-old in a McDonald's commercial and has been in numerous music videos. If you doubt her cool quotient at all, she also was the voice of Cheetara in the 2011 cartoon, ThunderCats. Emmanuelle is totally gorgeous, there is no doubt about that, and her body is completely amazing as well. I was unable to find any personal information on Emmanuelle, which leads me to believe she is probably single and waiting for my call. This list is messing with my mind. I have gone from not thinking about Jewish women at all, to pretty much thinking about nothing but Jewish women.
4 Elizabeth Banks
Elizabeth Banks is not only gorgeous, but is funny as well, which is truly the holy grail when one is looking for a woman. I once had a girlfriend that was totally hot, and was also a class clown in high school. I thought I was the luckiest guy around, until it turned out she was crazy. Elizabeth can't be crazy though, she is way too cool for that. Anyone that has been in both Wet Hot American Summer, 3o Rock and in all of Sam Raimi's Spider Man movies, and looks as hot as she does, simply has to be cool. She had a much different route towards Judaism than most on this list as she was raised Irish Catholic and then converted later in life. She said she has "been essentially a Jew for like 15 years", adding "Frankly, because I'm already doing everything, I feel like I'm as Jewish as I'm ever going to be."
3 Michelle Trachtenberg
Most of us know Michelle from her role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as Buffy's little sister Dawn Summers, but she has been in numerous movies. Speaking of Buffy, Sarah Michelle Gellar is also of the Jewish descent, and I thought long and hard about putting her on this list. Sadly, she didn't quite make the cut, although she will always be cool in my book. She was born in New York City, with both of her parents being Jewish. Her grandparents live in Israel. Like many others on this list, she started as a child actor, and first appeared in a commercial for laundry detergent when she was 3 years old. Michelle speaks fluent Russian, and celebrates both Christmas and Hanukkah. I feel a little odd saying this about someone I first saw portraying the very young Dawn Summers, but Michelle is absolutely gorgeous.
2 Mila Kunis
Mila Kunis is on anyone's hot list. She is talented, gorgeous and has a truly rocking body. While most people think they know a lot about her, many do not know that she is Jewish, and that she was born in Russia and moved to the US when she was 7 years old. Kunis has said that most of her family was killed in the Holocaust and her family hid their Jewishness out of fears of being persecuted. When she first moved to the United States at the age of 7 she said she was miserable because she did not know how to speak English. She said “I cried every day. I didn’t understand the culture. I didn’t understand the people. I’m pretty Jewish, I’ve got to say. I go ‘Oy’ and people are like, ‘Oh, you’re very Jewish.'" So now you know. Mila and her husband Ashton are said to be raising their child Jewish.
1 Natalie Portman
Who else would be number one on this list other than Natalie Portman? Well, okay maybe some others had a shot, but not much of one. She attended a Jewish Elementary school as a child, where she learned how to speak Hebrew as well as English. She was born in Jerusalem which is in Israel, of course, and has said that even though she "really loves the States... my heart's in Jerusalem. That's where I feel at home." Natalie is not only gorgeous but brilliant as well. She graduated from Harvard and speaks French, Japanese, German and Arabic. Gorgeous, sexy, motivated, brilliant, talented and also has major geek cred for being in the Star Wars movies. If you are not intimidated at this point then there is something wrong with you. Natalie truly deserves to be at the top of this list, but I bet you might be surprised with how much competition she had.
