Israeli Sexiness Won’t Die

Moment's May/June controversial cover

Our May/June issue certainly received mixed reviews from our readers due to the sexy cover image (left). But Heeb Magazine has done us one better.

Their current issue features a pull-out calendar—a swimsuit calendar—of “the most beautiful Jewish women in the world.” Titled “The Ladies of ’69” for this year 5769 (get your mind out of the gutter), it’s sure to turn heads at your local newsstand.

Jewlicious, Jerusalem Post and Ha’aretz each had their own coverage. Nobody failed to point out that Bar Rafaeli, the Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret model, is included in the calendar.

The Jerusalem Post has this preview:

Other models participating in the shoot included Israelis Moran Attias, Adi Neumann and Esti Ginzburg, a four-time covergirl for French Elle who was snapped in a red bikini while holding a fishing rod on which she’s snagged – you guessed it – a bagel-ready piece of lox.

Regarding our controversial cover, we decided to explore the issue in an intellectually constructive manner. In our current issue we posed the question “Who Cares What Women Wear (Or Don’t Wear)?” to our panel of rabbis spanning the spectrum of Jewish thought to discover what Judaism says about female promiscuity and physical modesty in general.
