Girls of Heeb (57)69

What the hell is this? Yet another attempt at pro-Israel propaganda via scantily clad Jewish/Israeli babes? An unsubtle attempt by geeky Heeb staffers to get in close proximity to hot Jewish babes by any means possible? Is it an homage to swim suit calendars and pin up girls with a somewhat Jewish spin? A bold statement against intermarriage with a reminder that Jewish women are indeed hot?

Frankly, I don’t care. Any project that unites Victoria’s Secret model Bar Rafaeli, Esquire Magazine cover girl and You Don’t Mess with the Zohan cast member Donna Feldman, four-time Elle cover girl Esti Ginzburg, Moran Attias, Adi Neumann (no relation to Heeb editor Josh Neuman) and Neta Bell-Silber is fine by me. However you wish to justify it.

The Jerusalem Post reports that

The “Ladies of ’69” calendar … hit American newsstands with the assistance of guest editor Brett Ratner, the director behind the Rush Hour films and the third X-Men movie. “[A]ll this Jewish stuff is really important to me,” the filmmaker explains in his opening letter. “Maybe that’s why I forced [comedian] Chris Tucker to order gefilte fish in Rush Hour 2.”

Haaretz in the meantime lets us know that the calendar’s title “The Girls of 69,” isn’t a crude reference to a sexual position, but rather a reference to “the year 5769 on the Hebrew calendar” – as opposed to the goyish Gregorian calendar.


Go visit the Heeb site, or pick it up at your local news stand. For the ladies in the house who don’t go all gaga about scantily clad babes, email me and I will send you a PDF file with a calendar featuring David Kelsey in various provocative poses.

  • “What the hell is this? Yet another… statement against intermarriage with a reminder that Jewish women are indeed hot?”

    This is not the time to be picky.

  • Kari, I don’t think ck was too serious. You don’t make statements against intermarriage with blondes; afterall that kind of genetic info is recessive.

  • Skip the Kelsy PDF and send me one of the lobster tails steamed with a side of drawn butter and some lemon wedges. That would get me sooo hot!

  • I can’t see any way on the Heeb website of buying this issue if you live outside the US of A. Who would like to do a mitzva and post me a copy to London, England? I will happily pay for the magazine and postage!! I’d be eternally grateful!

  • When will I stop hearing about Bar Rafaeli aka the most plain-looking Israeli model ever? Israel has plenty of beautiful women and this one is nowhere near the top of my list. I see hotter girls everytime I visit the mall in Petah Tikvah. Like the modeling world really needs another skinny white chick? Pass.

  • An area JCC director asked that this issue not be put out in the lobby because children and families walk by all day. Interesting footnote.

  • Herzl would be so proud…
    Or would he?

    After all it is the Diaspora, and not the Zionist state, that has given us tis gift, this new epitome of Jewish culture.

    Truly the people of the book can now rejoice. Not only do we have the Bible, the Gemorah, and the Talmud to our credit, but now we have a swimsuit calendar to our name as well.

    This opens a whole realm of possibilities in Jewish book stores:
    “You know what?
    if you buy a full set of “Steinsaltz” I’ll throw in the calendar half price”

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m no prude.
    Anyone lecherous enough to buy the domain can’t really afford to throw prudish stones..

    I guess I was hoping we wouldn’t make such a big deal out of showing off the goods…
    After all the Scandinavians never seem to make a big fuss over some raunchy poses and they barely had a written language until 100 AD…

    all the best,

    By the way if your In Arkansas(?!?) this Friday (1st Aug 2008) come give me a visit at the opening of “Digital Zion” at the “Gallery@404B” – Hot Springs, AR
