Hannukah Hotties: 8 Jewish Dudes We’d Let Spin Our Dreidel

When we think of sexy holidays, Hanukkah normally isn’t first on our list…that is, until we got an eyeful of these beautiful bar mitzvah-ed men!

To get you ready for eight crazy nights, we’re giving a big “shalom!” to  eight seriously hot Jewish sirs for every lady, from adorkable cuties like Adam Brody and Andy Samberg to smooth operators like Lenny Kravitz and Drake. These JILFs will definitely light your menorah, if you know what we mean!

NUMBER 1 – Jake Gyllenhaal

Didn’t know that the Brokeback Mountain star was Jewish? It becomes easily more apparent when you find out his full name is Jacob Benjamin Gyllenhaal (say that five times fast!). While Jake’s father is religiously a Swedenborgian (don’t ask), the actor’s mother is from a Jewish family in New York City, and Gyllenhaal has said that he considers himself “more Jewish than anything else.” Get ready to awww—rather than have a big glitzy bar mitzvah, Gyllenhaal volunteered at a homeless shelter instead for his 13th birthday. What a mensch!

NUMBER 2 – Paul Rudd

If we could pick the perfect Jewish husband, it’d be Paul Rudd. Leading man looks and funny sidekick sensibilities? For that, we’ve got to give a big “mazel!” to Mama and Papa Rudd, Jewish immigrants from London who raised Paul in New Jersey and Kansas (wrap your head around all that!). Rudd’s grandparents changed their name from Rudnitzky long ago, but Paul still had a Jewish upbringing, having a big bar mitzvah for his 13th birthday. Apparently he had a ball at the party, because Rudd actually became a DJ for bar and bat mitzvahs before hitting it big. Look. At. Those. Shorts.

NUMBER 3 – Lenny Kravitz

Yes, we were surprised too to learn that the sexy guitar-strummer was half Jewish! Kravitz’s father was from a Russian Jewish family, while his mother, actress Roxie Roker, was of Afro-Bahamian and African-American descent, and from a Christian family. When initially starting out, the rocker was told that he wasn’t “white enough” or “black enough” by record labels because of his mixed race and multi-cultural upbringing, so he decided to record his first album on his own. And with four Grammy awards under his belt, we’d say it was a damn smart move!

NUMBER 4 – Joseph Gordon Levitt

Israel Gains Unlikely Support From TLC’s ‘Honey Boo Boo’

Barbara Walters recently named Honey Boo Boo, aka Alana Thompson, one of 2012’s Most Fascinating People, while Adam Levine called her the worst thing that’s ever happened to civilization. Needless to say, the former ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ star knows how to work the camera and get herself in the spotlight.

The youngster utilizes social media to communicate with her fans around the world, but a few weeks ago, a fan from Israel decided to send Thompson a personal letter, chalk-filled with Honey Boo Boo references and information about Israel.

Honey Boo Boo Child responded to her fans’ letter by posting a photo of herself holding the letter and an inflatable Israeli flag hammer on Facebook, with the message ‘thanks to adi segal from Israel’.

Haaretz’s word of the day: Word of the Day / Gingi גִ’ינְגִ’י

When much of the population of Israel tends to the ‘dark and mysterious’ type, anyone else easily stands out – especially the fiery redheads. And like one of the Spice Girls, they’re identified with a certain zesty root.

In American English, people with red hair are called redheads. But Israelis took the British word “ginger” (supposedly from the root vegetable, though it’s never looked particularly reddish to me) and ran with it, calling anyone with reddish hair a “gingi” (JEEN-ji, for a male) or “gingit” (JEEN-jit, for a female).

As with “blondini” (or “blondinit”) to refer to people with blond hair, Israelis are sometimes a little too quick on the draw, rushing to label anyone without a Mediterranean appearance as one of these outliers. Have light brown hair, maybe a few golden or reddish highlights in the sun? In the eyes of many Israelis, there’s a good chance you’re either a blondini or a gingi.

But while many British redheads complain of being taunted for their hair color — with one of the most extreme cases being a Newcastle family of six that complained several years ago they were forced to move out of two homes because of bullying and abuse over the color of their hair — the Israeli take on gingi-itis seems to be mostly affectionate, if sometimes intrusive.

After all, the Bible tells us, King David was “admoni” (“reddish” or “ruddy”) and is widely seen as having had red hair (though the description could also be a reference to his complexion). If you’re living in a land where a (possibly) redheaded boy once beat a giant and became king, being a gingi can’t be all that bad.
