The Sexiest Hottest Rabbis of 2013*

From The Desk Of New
Rated PGMy beautiful friends,

I am excited to announce Jewrotica’s first annual “SexiestHottest Rabbis” list! That’s right. We are accepting nominations of sexy rabbis worldwide who deserve to be recognized for their raw awesomeness. Nominations are open until November 15th, 2013 and the final picks will be featured on this December.

So, what gets a rabbi onto the list? We’re looking for studs and babes who possess three qualities:

a) The Smarts
b) Some Action
c) Badass Factor

The Smarts” = You gotta respect the rabbis who can school you in a battle of wits, the ones that wow you with their intellectual chops but have the presence to keep you awake during the sermon. Send the brainy ones our way.

Getting Some Action” = Any rabbi can open a Torah or Talmud (hopefully), but who are the rabbis that are taking action? Whether through Jewish outreach or social justice activism, if you want your rabbi to make this list, you got to show us a little action.

Badass Factor” = Your rabbi rides a motorcycle? Plays jazz? Leads silent meditations and retreats? Or maybe your rabbi is so irresistibly sexy that you haven’t missed a Shabbat service yet this year? Yeah, that’s the one we want.

Tell your friends and send us your nominations today! Nominations can be submitted here and we are also accepting nominations of ‘rabbinic couples’, so feel free to nominate your rabbi / rebbetzin together!

Send ’em over and let the first annual “SexiestHottest Rabbis” list begin!

Light and Love,
Ayo Oppenheimer - Final Version of Signature

* UPDATE FROM THE JEWROTICA TEAM: We have changed the name of this post from The Sexiest Rabbis of 2013 to The Hottest Rabbis of 2013 in order to clear up any confusion that might still linger regarding our intentions. This was never a contest based on physical appearance. None of the criteria we specified cited any mention of a nominated Rabbi’s looks. We used the word “Sexy” in a figurative and not literal sense and all we want to do is highlight Rabbis who are doing awesome and inspirational work. Anyone who read this post beyond the title, and is in possession of reading comprehension skills beyond that of a 3rd grader, would have recognized that. Yet, some confusion nonetheless persists. Hopefully we have cleared this up a little. We are not looking for literally sexy Rabbis. You may not stock up on Viagra. There will not be a Sexy Rabbis of Jewrotica Swimsuit Calendar. (Sorry). We think that such lists, which are widely read and considered, are essentially silly and classic link bait. Our list is also silly, but we’re going to use the attention to highlight some pretty fantastic Rabbis – at least based on the flood of nominations we’ve received thus far – nominations that represent every Jewish denomination, spanning all ages from Rabbis in their 20s to Rabbis well into their 60s. Are we clear now?
