The most beautiful Jewish women and La Juive world

Jewish women in ancient times were famous for their beauty and sexuality. Thanks to the rich history of the Jewish people looks Jewish girls are very diverse — among them you will find not only bright brunettes and natural blondes. In this edition you will find the most beautiful famous Jewish women of today.

The Jews, an ancient people of Semitic origin, for two thousand years (until 1948) did not have their own state and existed solely as a network of the Jewish Diaspora worldwide. The number of Jews reached a peak (16.7 million people) before the Second world war, but during the Holocaust in Europe were destroyed 6 million Jews. Now the Jewish population is 14 million, of which 6 million live in Israel, 5.4 million in the United States. The large Jewish Diaspora also exist in France (478 thousand), Canada (380 thousand), UK (290 thousand), Russia (190 million) and other countries.

The national religion of the Jews, and the most important attribute of their identity is Judaism, therefore in many languages there is no distinction of the concepts “Jew” and “Jew”, but in Russian “Jew” denotes a nationality, and “Jew” is a religion.

Unlike most people in the world, the Jewish nationality is not determined by the father and mother. Kabbalah explains that the soul of the Jewish woman at the moment of conception “attracts” the Jewish soul. The “law of return” the state of Israel currently reads: “a Jew is one who is born of a Jewish mother and moved to another religion, and a person who converted to Judaism”.

“In 1988 I first came to Israel and realized that I just have to sing in Hebrew. Even for myself, even if I hear only 20 people. It is the cry of my soul is the call of the blood. < …> When I sang in Hebrew, it’s like I heard a voice from the depth of centuries. Indeed it is the assertion that the people involved in Hebrew, teaches, and remembers it. This is especially felt in the song. Through song came to me these words and I felt them and felt. Hebrew is a very strong language. Such energy, such vowel sounds that there is a feeling that you fill the empty world with sounds and music… I try to go to Jerusalem every year. Whenever I go there, I will go to your tree. It’s part of my soul. For me, it marks the feast of the triumph of life.
