A nice antidote to all this war stuff just hit the news stands, namely the latest issue of Atlanta Jewish Life. Standouts include the AJL Hotlist featuring an interview with Safed’s own Havi Mond (pictured above), the world’s only known Orthodox Supermodel:
Mond says that when she was starting out, her agency would groan over her adamant decision to stick to her religious principles not to work on the Sabbath or holidays, wincing, â€œâ€˜Oooh, this gig is a really good job for your career,’ but now they just know: â€˜Havi can’t work Fridays, Saturdays â€” those dates are no good,’ telling clients, â€˜If you want her, you have to change them.’ They understand now,â€ she says… â€œIt all adds to the intrigueâ€ surrounding Mond, notes French Connection’s Creative Director Alisa Marks.
Hot Orthodox Supermodels? Clearly Atlanta Jewish Life is waaay too cool for Atlanta! Oh and while you’re visiting the site, you may also want to check out this essay titled Field Trips from the Edge written by some dude about his recent experiences as a birthright israel madrich.
OK, OK… that was me talking about our recent Jewlicious / Oranim trip. Yes, sometimes I do kick it old skool and lower myself to writing for analogue media. Sorry trees! But now maybe Havi Mond will have read my article? Surely an invite to one of her rollicking London Shabbat dinners will soon follow?
