Top 50 Hottest Jewish Men (50-41)

We just spent the last week honoring the 50 Hottest Jewish Women. Please join us over the next week in celebrating the 50 Hottest Jewish Men in the world.

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 gorgeous Jewish men, or JILF’s as we lovingly call them.


#50- SETH GREEN

Age: 38

Hometown: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Known for: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Family Guy, Can’t Hardly Wait, Idle Hands

Why he’s a JILF: Seth was born to Jewish parents in Philly. After they divorced, Seth found respite at a Jewish summer camp that allowed him to reinvent himself. It was at camp that he discovered his love for acting after a production of Hello Dolly! He began acting professionally at the age of 8 in The Hotel New Hampshire co-starring Jodie Foster and Rob Lowe. Seth rose to fame when at 15 years old he starred in Rally’s ‘Cha Ching’ commercial, leading to a Super Bowl appearance and a key to New Orleans. Most of us remember Seth from 90’s teen movies Can’t Hardly Wait and Idle Hands, as well as his lead role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Oz. Seth currently can be heard on Family Guy as Chris and Neil, and will appear in 2013’s Sexy Evil Genius.


#49- ADAM SANDLER

Age: 45

Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

Known for: Billy Madison, Saturday Night Live, Punch Drunk Love, Grown Ups

Why he’s a JILF: Adam was born in Brooklyn to a Jewish family, but relocated to New Hampshire at the age of 5. He realized he was comedically gifted at a very young age, eventually taking him to New York to study acting and perform at nightclubs and university campuses. Adam broke through to mass audiences when he landed the role of Smitty on The Cosby Show. Shortly afterwards, he was cast on Saturday Night Live, and as they say, the rest is history. Over the last 20 years, Adam has starred in, written, and produced dozens of films including Airheads, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, Waterboy, Mr.Deeds, Bid Daddy, Grown Ups, and many more. Look out for him this year in That’s My Boy and Hotel Transylvania.


#48- OMRI CASSPI

Age: 23

Hometown: Holon, Israel

Known for: NBA All-Star Rookie Team, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Cleveland Cavaliers

Why he’s a JILF: Born in Israel, Omri has been playing basketball his entire life. As a young child, he played for Elitzur Yavne B.C and Maccabi Rishon LeZion before moving onto the Maccabi Tel Aviv youth team at the age of 13, winning the State Youth Championship in 2005. Omri joined the Maccabi Tel Aviv cadet team at 17, and has been playing basketball professionally ever since. Omri has played for Hapoel Galil Elyon, Sacramento Kings, and currently for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Although Omri now lives in Cleveland, he still plays for the Israeli national basketball team in international competitions.


#47- MARK ZUCKERBERG

Age: 27

Hometown: White Plains, New York

Known for: Facebook, World’s Youngest Billionaire because of Facebook

Why he’s a JILF: Mark doesn’t really need an introduction. Most of what we need to know about Facebook’s CEO was depicted in Academy-Award winning film, The Social Network, so I’m just going to share a few facts about him that you are possibly unaware of. Mark had his Bar Mitzvah, and has since called himself an atheist. Mark can read and write in French, Hebrew, Latin, and ancient Greek. It is speculated that Mark choose blue as the predominant Facebook colour due to a red-green colorblindness. Mark began writing programs and code before he hit high school and was considered a prodigy by tutors and teachers. He currently resides in Palo Alto with his adorable dog, Beast, and billions of dollars to keep him warm at night.


#46- MIKE GREENBERG

Age: 44

Hometown: New York, New York

Known for: Mike and Mike in the Morning, ESPN, Duel

Why he’s a JILF: Mike was born and raised in a New York Jewish family. After graduating from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern, he immediately began working as a local sports anchor and reporter. Mike has been a fixture in the sports world for over 20 years now; anchoring, reporting, hosting, and writing for SportsChannel, ESPNews, and ESPN Radio. Mike has published two popular sports books, most recently with radio co-host Mike Golic (from Mike & Mike in the Morning) entitled Mike and Mike’s Rules for Sports and Life.
