Is your rabbi a hottie?

David_wolpe_hot_rabbi_says_newsweek Asked - and answered - in this week's issue of Newsweek. It's the second year in a row the weekly has taken on rabbinical pulchritude, pegged to (why, exactly?) the annual Passover holiday.

L.A.'s own Rabbi David Wolpe of Temple Sinai (pictured at right) takes top honors again. In fact, the City of Angels dominates the list. Are SoCal rabbis just cuter than the rest, or is that the list-makers are from LA?

To see Rabbi Wople in action, check him out in a debate about whether God exists. Criteria and this year's list are here.

Only a shiksa would want to "do" a rabbi.


Get a grip, HulaGirl, the blogger didn't write the article, Newsweek did. And get a sense of humor while you're at it.

Wolpe is a nice guy, more cute than hot, but sure beats the usual rabbi with a bushy beard who looks like your Uncle Mort. Super smart, too, and eloquent. Pretty open- minded and warm for a Conservative rabbi. But very married.
