Beautiful Jewish women
About Beautiful Jewish women spread legends. Imperious, demanding and grumpy – ironically characterize them their own husbands. And they say that they have three things: shlimazl-husband, a brilliant child, and they are a little overweight. The woman for the Jewish people is not of secondary importance. The fact is known that the nationality of the Jews is determined by the mother. The Talmud says: “An unmarried man will never reach perfection, because of the women are all blessings.” The girl in the family – an absolute guarantee that the future heirs will be the Jews, regardless of nationality of their father. This post presents the most beautiful Jewish women, compiled on the basis of understanding of Judaism, which is cited above. My rating doesn’t include Jewish by father, or who did not accept Judaism, but includes Jewish women by a Jewish mother.
Paradox: in spite of the Israeli matriarchy, the married woman, as well as in other countries, obediently takes her husband’s name. The head of the clan is still a man. And a woman – beloved mother and adviser. It’s hard to find a happier mother than Jewish. Their authority is simply unmoved. Mom to even her fifty-year-old son will always be the closest person whose words are often the ultimate truth. No wonder the people joke that the most beloved woman for a Jew – his mother.
