Top 50 Hottest Jewish Women (20-11)

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 Myq Kaplan have to say?


#20- EMMANUELLE CHRIQUI

Age: 34

Hometown: Montreal, Canada

Known for: Entourage, You Don’t Mess With the Zohan, The Borgias

Why she's a JILF: Emmanuelle was born to Moroccan Jewish immigrants in Montreal. She was raised in Toronto in a Sephardic Orthodox Jewish household. Shortly after finishing high school, Emmanuelle relocated to Vancouver to pursue acting. She landed roles in Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Once a Thief, and Psi Factor before getting her first Hollywood film part in Detroit Rock City. Her big break came in Adam Sandler’s You Don’t Mess With the Zohan when she played a Palestinian immigrant living in New York. She went on to be featured in several music videos and feature films, and was recently cast in both Showtime’s The Borgias and the animated series, Thundercats. Look out for her in the upcoming TV series Tron: Uprising.


#19- NIKKI REED

Age: 23

Hometown: Los Angeles, California

Known for: Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, The Twilight Series

Why she's a JILF: Nikki was raised without religion, but considers herself Jewish. Her father is Jewish, while her mother is Cherokee and Italian, giving Nikki that unique exotic beauty. Nikki moved out at 14 years old, residing in various apartments throughout L.A. During this time, she co-wrote the indie hit ‘Thirteen’ co-starring Evan Rachel Wood. Nikki dropped out of high school, citing mothers sneaking into her school to confront and harass her about the film as the reason. She eventually graduated through homeschooling. After the success of Thirteen, Nikki landed several large roles including Lords of Dogtown, The O.C, and eventually The Twilight Series. Look out for Nikki in the upcoming Downers Grove and Pawn… and the final Twilight film, Breaking Dawn Part 2.


#18- YAEL BAR ZOHAR

Age: 32

Hometown: Tel Aviv, Israel

Known for: Israeli model, Israeli Beauty and the Beast, Soap Opera Ramat Aviv Gimmel

Why she's a JILF: Yael is not well known in North America, but she is one of Israel’s hottest commodities. Yael began modeling and acting in commercials in her early teens. After modeling for the Israel underwear company, Pilpel, she became a national sex icon. Israel musicians have written songs about her beauty, and Yael continues to pop up in almost all forms of Israel media. She still models, acts, hosts TV shows and even acted as a mistress of ceremonies for a group wedding.


#17- CHELSEA HANDLER

Age: 37
