Top 50 Hottest Jewish Women (30-21)

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 Moshe Kasher have to say?


#30- RASHIDA JONES

Age: 36

Hometown: Los Angeles, California

Known for: Parks and Recreation, The Office, The Social Network, Our Idiot Brother

Why she's a JILF: Rashida is the daughter of the famed Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton. Although daddy was Christian, her mother was Jewish, so Rashida attended Hebrew school as a child. Rashida was considered a child prodigy of sorts. From a very young age, she was an avid reader, played classical piano, and orchestrated music. Immediately after graduating from Harvard, she landed an acting role in a mini-series called The Last Don. Rashida has been acting consistently since, with roles in many popular TV shows and films including The Office, Parks and Recreation, I Love You Man, The Muppets, and The Social Network. Jones is currently single, bit might be on the look out for a nice Jewish boy. She once said, “My boyfriends tend to be Jewish and also be practicing ... I don’t see it as a necessity, but there’s something about it that I connect with for whatever reason."


#29- ELIZABETH BANKS

Age: 38

Hometown: Pittsfield, Massachusetts

Known for: Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Wet Hot American Summer, The Hunger Games

Why she's a JILF: Elizabeth was raised in a Christian household, but converted to Judaism for her sportwriter husband, Max Handelman. As a child, she was very athletic; horseback riding and baseball were her favs. After breaking a leg sliding into third base, she decided to audition for the school play for a change of pace. A passion for acting was sparked and she never looked back. Elizabeth’s breakthrough role was in 2005’s 40 Year Old Virgin. Since then, she’s appeared in countless popular comedy films including Wet Hot American Summer, Zack and Miri Make a Porn, Role Models, and Our Idiot Brother. She’s currently in the box office record breaking hit, The Hunger Games. Look out for her in the upcoming People Like Us and What to Expect When You’re Expecting.


#28- SELMA BLAIR

Age: 39

Hometown: Southfield, Michigan

Known for: Cruel Intentions, The Fog, Hellboy

Why she's a JILF: This Hebrew School hottie attended a Hillel day school in Farmignton Hills, Michigan. Selma moved to New York originally to pursue a career in photography, barely surviving and living at the Salvation Army. Although she landed an agent really quickly, she didn’t get any roles beyond commercials and the odd indie flick until 1999’s Cruel Intentions. That role (and more memorably her award-winning kiss with Sarah Michelle Gellar) put her in the spotlight and the parts starting rolling in. Selma appeared in dozens of mainstream movies in the 2000’s including Legally Blonde, The Sweetest Thing, Hellboy, The Fog, and Hellyboy II:The Golden Army. Watch out for Selma in Charlie Sheen new FX show, Anger Management, based on the Jack Nicholson/Adam Sandler pic.


#27- MIA KIRSHNER

Age: 37

Hometown: Toronto, Canada
