The Hanukkah Hotness, Night 2: Meital Dohan
Tonight's Hanukkah hottie is the Israeli actress and singer Meital Dohan. Meital is kind of the Israeli Lady Gaga. (She's also an actor and a comedian, starring in the Israeli version of Ugly Betty. On American TV, you may have seen her on Weeds.) She's at her naughtiest in "Yummy Boyz":
Meital is also an author, having written Love and Other Bad Habits: Unmasking the Most Intimate Feminine Moments. She collaborated with photographer Karen Gillerman-Harel. It examines the many faces of Israeli Jewish and Arab women, and first came out in Hebrew in 2007.
I'm pretty sure Meital likes boys. But if you're a Jewish woman who loves another woman, the book for you just might be Milk and Honey: A Celebration of Jewish Lesbian Poetry, edited by Julie R. Enszer. I haven't read it yet, but it looks amazing. And you don't really have to be Jewish lesbian/bisexual/queer woman to read it. I'm sure the poetry therein will dazzle readers of all tribes.
