Top 50 Hottest Jewish Women (10-1)

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. The last four days, we have shared numbers 50-11 of the most talented, intelligent, funny, and beautiful Jewish women. Here’s the Top 10!

Tune in tomorrow for our list of the 50 Hottest Jewish Men (Still JILFs).


#10- RACHEL BILSON

Age: 30

Hometown: Los Angeles, California

Known for: The O.C, Jumper, Hart of Dixie

Why she's a JILF: Rachel comes from a long line of Jewish film biz relatives including directors, editors, and screenwriters. Her mother is an Italian-American sex therapist. Rachel began playing piano after a terrible car accident that essentially knocked some sense into her. Following her father’s advice, she decided to pursue an acting career. After several commercials and a couple guest roles on popular teen shows, she landed the gig on The O.C in 2003. She was only supposed to appear in a couple episodes, but audiences adored Summer Roberts, so she was written in as a main character. Known for her unique sense of fashion style, Rachel has appeared in various clothing campaigns and magazine spreads. Rachel currently stars on Hart of Dixie and can be seen next year in The To Do List.


#9- ORLY LEVY

Age: 38

Hometown: Beit She’an, Israel

Known for: Former model, Current member of Knesset for Yisrael Beiteinu

Why she's a JILF: Orly has been named the sexiest woman in politics by a number of publications… but we believe she’s just one of the sexiest women. Starting her career as an Israeli model and television host, she later switched her focus to law and politics. Orly currently serves as Deputy Speaker of the Knesset of Yisrael Beiteinu. Orly is also a mother of three, residing with her family in Kibbutz Mesilot.


#8- ESTI GINZBURG

Age: 22

Hometown: Tel Aviv, Israel

Known for: Supermodel, Sports Illustrated, Twelve

Why she's a JILF: Esti comes from a family of Jewish architects and engineers. In fact, her grandfather was part of the original planning and construction of Zahala Tel Aviv. Esti began acting in commercials at the age of 8, and got signed to international modeling agency Elite at 14. Over the last 8 years, she has modeled for global brands including FCUK, Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry, and Castro. Esti was also featured three years running in the famous swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated. Esti still lives in Tel Aviv and is a patriotic Israeli, recently finishing her service and even speaking out against fellow supermodel Bar Refeali for choosing not to serve.


#7- MORAN ATIAS

Age: 31

Hometown: Haifa, Israel

Known for: Israeli supermodel, Crash, Deal or No Deal, The Next Three Days

Why she's a JILF: Moran was born in Israel to parents of Moroccan Jewish descent. She first made a name for herself in Israel, when at the age of 15, she appeared on the youth show Out of Focus. Moran intended to serve in the Israeli Forces, but was diagnoses with meningitis at 17. Instead, she pursued a modeling career in Italy and Germany, eventually becoming Roberto Cavalli’s model. Moran has since received the title of Miss Israel, appeared as TV host on Israel’s version of Deal or No Deal, and landed roles in American films including Crash and The Next Three Days. She currently stars as Diana’s girlfriend, Christie, on White Collar.


#6- EMMY ROSSUM

Age: 25

Hometown: New York, New York
