Top 50 Hottest Jewish Women (40-31)
Join Shalom Life in celebrating the 50 most talented, intelligent, funny, and beautiful Jewish women in the world
Happy Passover everyone!. In celebration of the holiday,
we have compiled a list of the 50 Hottest Female Jews (Some are Mom’s… but they
are all JILF'S) in the world today.
Narrowing it down to only 50 took a lot of thought and consideration, but I think we finally nailed it. Over the next 5 days, Shalom Life will celebrate the most talented, intelligent, funny, and beautiful Jewish women. Tune in next week for our list of the 50 Hottest Jewish Men (Still JILFs).
Also in celebration of Passover, we asked 5 of our favorite Jewish comedians to share a holiday memory. What did Rain Pryor have to say?
#40- SARAH SILVERMAN
Hometown: Manchester, New Hampshire
Known for: Jesus is Magic, The Sarah Silverman Program, The Bedwetter
Why she's a JILF: Although Sarah was not raised religious, she considers herself culturally Jewish. In fact, she integrates Judaism into many of her stand-up routines and sketches. In 2008, she appealed to the elderly Florida Jewish community to vote for Obama in a hilarious viral video. Sarah started her career in 1994 as a writer SNL. She was fired within the year because “she’s got her own voice. She’s very much Sarah Silverman all the time.” But their loss was our gain. Since then, that voice has performed international stand-up, had a few TV programs, and starred in several feature films. Look out for her in festival favorite “Take This Waltz.”
