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

Age: 41

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.”


#39- BAHAR SOOMEKH

Age: 37

Hometown: Tehran, Iran

Known for: Crash, Mission: Impossible III, Saw III

Why she's a JILF: Bahar was raised in Iran in a devout Jewish family. The Persian beauty moved to Los Angeles in 1979 with her family to escape the Islamic Revolution. Fluent in four languages (including Hebrew), Bahar graduated from University and worked a corporate job while pursuing acting classes in the evening. Her training paid off as she was soon cast in several popular TV shows and films including Jag, 24, Crash, Mission: Impossible III, and Saw III. Look for her in the upcoming film, Just Like a Woman, co-starring Sienna Miller.


#38- SHIRI MAIMON

Age: 30

Hometown: Kiryat Haim, Israel

Known for: Israeli soap opera Yeladot Ra’ot (Bad Girls), popular Israeli pop singer

Why she's a JILF: Shiri was born to Jewish refugee parents, both escaping Arab countries. While serving in the Israel Defense Forces, she sang with the IDF entertainment troupe. In 2003, she got first runner up in Israel’s hit reality show Kokhav Nolad (A Star is Born). Since then, she has guest starred in many music videos and Israeli television shows, and released a number of hit singles. She won Best Israeli Act at the MTV Europe Awards, and continues to perform around the world.


#37- MILI AVITAL

Age: 40

Hometown: Jerusalem, Israel

Known for: Stargate, The Human Stain, Damages

Why she's a JILF: Raised in Jerusalem, Mili is considered one of the best actresses in Israel. She moved to New York in 1993 to pursue a career in English cinema. Mili’s talent and beauty immediately garnered attention, landing her a lead role in Stargate. Since then, Mili has starred in countless films, TV shows and theatre productions including The Human Stain, FX’s Damages, and King Lear.
