->''"I want a steamy little Jewish Princess!"''
-->-- '''Music/FrankZappa''', one of very few SFW lines from his song "Jewish Princess" from his album ''Music/SheikYerbouti''.

Some dig Asians. Some prefer their [[LatinLover lovers Latin]]. And some feel that EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench. And then there are those who find that when God chooses a people, he pulls out all the hotness stops.

A sort of sub-trope to EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench, dedicated to the Chosen People. Maybe it's the [[TheWoobie Woobie]] factor (they are pretty much the world's {{Butt Monkey}}s); maybe it's their sense of humor (everybody knows Jews are funny). Maybe it's the strength of the BadassIsraeli, or just the sweetness of the NiceJewishBoy. Or even the allure of sophisticated Jewish culture. The Gentile may end up ConvertingForLove.

While primarily an American trope this can be seen in other countries with large Jewish populations, such as France. On the other hand it's an unknown trope in countries with negligible Jewish populations.

Obviously, compare and contrast RaceFetish, LatinLover, MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow, WhereDaWhiteWomenAt and, well, any other [[RaceTropes ethnic or national tropes]]. Contrast ShiksaGoddess, and [[NerdsAreSexy compare]] and contrast JewishAndNerdy.



* Comedian John Mulaney has a segment where he says that the reason why he prefers Jewish girls is that they say what they feel and get him to stand up for himself when others treat him poorly.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica used to be engaged to [[NiceJewishBoy a nice girl]] named Bernie Rosenthal.
* ''ComicBook/XMen'':
** Colossus and ComicBook/KittyPryde have had an on-and-off relationship over the years.
** On the male side of things, {{ComicBook/Magneto}} is usually depicted as a SilverFox Jewish gentleman and has never had any problem attracting women, even ones young enough to be his grandchildren (it helps that he's undergone several deaging incidents over the years).
* In the half book/half comic ''ComicBook/LimekillerAtLarge'', the second item on Marty's bucket list is "Make love to a Jewish Woman(Long Story)"
* ''The Adventures Of Olivia'' has one-off character Sylvia is a big-breasted, blonde, glasses-wearing nurse that by hand and mouth alone gets a group of men to provide ''full'' semen samples.
* A rather dark variant in ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' with Rebecca being the Jewish love interest of NaziProtagonist Heinrich / Requiem. She is beautiful enough for a LesbianVampire to hit on her and being worthy of becoming a bride of {{Dracula}}.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'': Shosanna Dreyfus; French ''and'' Jewish. She attracts the attentions of a Nazi and has a black boyfriend who is presumably not Jewish. Actress Creator/MelanieLaurent is herself an authentic French Jew.
* In the Creator/DavidMamet film ''Film/StateAndMain'', Creator/SarahJessicaParker's character mentions that she loves Jewish men while seducing Creator/PhilipSeymourHoffman's character. Tying into the trope title, she comes to believe he's Jewish after finding Matzo in his hotel room, which was just a gift from the director. In fact, he is ''not'' Jewish.
* In ''Film/MillersCrossing'', two Irish-American gangsters get into a love triangle with a Jewish woman.
* ''The Brothers [=McMullen=]'': Patrick has a rather {{Anvilicious}} relationship with a Jewish girl.
* In ''Film/GoodFellas'', Henry Hill is an Irish-Italian [[TheMafia gangster]] married to a Jewish wife while, apparently, raising his kids Jewish, too.
* In the little-known Israeli-American film ''Film/EveryTimeWeSayGoodbye'', David Bradley (played by Tom Hanks. Yes THAT Creator/TomHanks!) falls for a Sephardic Jewish woman named Sarah. The same happens to David's friend Peter who falls for Sarah's friend Victoria.
* ''Film/TheFearlessVampireKillers'': Alfred falls instantly in love with the beautiful Jewess Sarah. Ironically, Alfred is played by the very Jewish Creator/RomanPolanski, while Sarah is played by Texas bombshell Sharon Tate. The couple [[ShiksaGoddess hooked up in real life]].
* ''Film/TheIllusionist'': This is a strong part of the subtext. The protagonist Eisenheim, a.k.a. Eduard Abramovich, is only AmbiguouslyJewish (but not very ambiguously), but it's hard to escape the conclusion that the Crown Prince isn't the only reason he and Duchess Sophie von Teschen have to move to America to be together.
* Leah in ''Film/AStrangerAmongUs''. If she weren't Hasidic, she would have trouble keeping track of all her boyfriends. As it is, whoever the matchmaker picks for her is in luck.
* In ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith2005'', Mrs. Smith (played by Angelina Jolie and therefore awesomely hot) tells her husband, once she's finally started being honest with him, "I'm Jewish."
* ''Exodus'' : Agent Ben Canaan can win the heart of a girl just by making endless speeches of Zionist ideology.
* In ''Film/BordelloOfBlood'', [[ShiksaGoddess Katherine Verdoux]] gets a serious case of this for Rafe Guttman. What's amazing is that, for such an exploitative, T&A, B-movie schlockfest of a film, there's actually a really interesting subplot going on about the tensions and conflicts of an interconfessional romance.
* ''Film/WhereTheTruthLies'': Vince has a serious case of this for Lanny. It's not clear whether the reason Lanny rejects him is because he just has no homosexual inclinations whatsoever, or just because he's worried about what would happen to their careers if this became public knowledge.
* In ''Film/MeetingDaddy'', a proper Southern belle mistakes her best friend's future husband for a Jew (because he's from New York and was raised in Los Angeles) and tells him, [[PrecisionFStrike "I want to suck your big, circumcised Jewish dick."]] (He's actually Episcopalian.)
* Creator/RicardoCortez, Dark Prince of the [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode Pre-Codes]], was born in New York City as Jacob Krantz. (The film studios gave him a LatinLover stage name in an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of Creator/RudolphValentino.)
* ''Film/TheHebrewHammer'' plays around with this. At one point, Damien's [[MsFanservice female assistants]] try to seduce him, gushing about how well-read Jewish men are.

* OlderThanFeudalism: In the ''Literature/BookOfGenesis'', Potiphar's wife becomes infatuated with the handsome Hebrew slave [[Characters/BookOfGenesis Joseph]]. She then proceeds to [[{{Subverted}} subvert]] the trope when, infuriated at his rejection, she plays the [[WoundedGazelleGambit Wounded Gazelle]] and claims he tried to rape her, using his Hebrew origin to turn the other Egyptians against him.
* In ''Literature/{{Trainspotting}}'', [[TheWoobie Spud]] says his plans for his cut of the money are to settle down with a beautiful Jewish princess.
* The novel ''Eighty-Sixed'' includes the slang for gays with ethnic fetishes: "beanie queens" are those who like Orthodox Jews. [[note]]"Bean queens" are those who like Latinos, while "rice queens" are those who like Asians. The "beanie" is partly a joking reference to "bean queens," but mostly a reference to yarmulkes.[[/note]]
* In ''Literature/RichardTheThirdInTheTwentyFirstCentury'', the titular [[UsefulNotes/RichardIII time-displaced monarch]] falls for a beautiful single mom, Sarah Levine. He's ''shocked'' to discover she's Jewish and afraid of what this could do to their relationship and/or future children, being a medieval Catholic and all, but he comes around to happily going with the flow.
* Miriam from ''Literature/TheRomanMysteries'' can stop men in their tracks and [[DistractedByTheSexy cause accidents]] by her mere presence.
* Lawrence Block's spy story ''The Cancelled Czech'', with a girl who has been raised as a devout neo-Nazi ... and has intense sexual fantasies about Jewish men.
* Discussed in ''Literature/PortnoysComplaint''. As a teen, Alex Portnoy believed that he must pretend to be Christian to attract Christian girls; but he later realized that this is not necessary, because there are plenty of Christian women who are attracted to Jewish men just like him.
-->Who knew that the secret to a shikse's heart (and box) was not to pretend to be some hook-nosed variety of goy, as boring and vacuous as her own brother, but to be what one's uncle was, to be what one's father was, to be whatever one was oneself...
* In TheDevilsDictionary, Ambrose Bierce writes that the Shebrew (the female Jew) is an altogether superior creature to the Hebrew.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/MadMen'' seems to love this concept, made especially relevant by showing that Jews are outsiders in the ad men's [=WASPy=] social circles. Don Draper's first and second-season mistresses are Jewish, as is his fourth season girlfriend. Roger's young wife is also Jewish. When Draper's firm lobbies for a job with the Israeli tourism bureau, and the executives take particular note of how beautiful Israeli women are.
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'': Ziva David, the Israeli agent. Ignore the fact that she's portrayed by a Catholic Chilean.
* Eliot Spencer in ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' seems to get a mild case of it toward Mikel Dayan, his counterpart in the rival crew in "The Two Live Crew Job."
* Fran Fine in ''Series/TheNanny'' is very, very Jewish, and attracts the attention of dozens of men over the years, including many celebrities and (of course) [[{{UST}} her boss the Broadway producer]] [[OfficialCouple Mr. Sheffield]].
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': Puck and Rachel date for no reason other than that they are both Jewish in a very obvious parody of the TokenMinorityCouple. Rachel also has a StalkerWithACrush in the form of Jacob Ben Israel (yeah, guess what religion he is).
* ''Series/TheXFiles'': Fox Mulder of is of Jewish descent (according to his actor, himself part-Jewish).
* In an episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSVU'', a serial rapist mentioned he's really, really into Jewish women, to the point of secretly corresponding with some while in his prison's equivalent of the Aryan Brotherhood.
* ''Series/NorthernExposure'' milked the BelligerentSexualTension between Maggie O'Connell and the show's Jewish protagonist Joel Fleischmann for several seasons before finally giving them their SlapSlapKiss.
* In ''Series/BandOfBrothers'', Liebgott is noted for being the only Jew in Easy Company (which at first leads to conflict with Guarnere when he takes offense at his scornfully referring to [[DrillSergeantNasty Sobel]] as "a son of Abraham." They're all friends later, though). He later tells Webster all about his plans for after the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII war]] to marry "a nice Jewish girl, with [[BuxomIsBetter great, big, soft titties]] and [[WhenSheSmiles a smile to die for]]," complete with hilarious gestures.
* PlayedForLaughs of course in ''Series/ChildrensHospital''. Doctor Glenn Richie and his rival Rabbi Jewy [=McJewJew=] are beyond plain-looking, but catch quite a bit of lust from ladies at the Hosptial. Their Jewishness acts as a massive turn-on, thus HilarityEnsues.
* Lisa Cuddy from ''Series/{{House}}''. The show's two major Jewish male characters - Wilson and Taub - are respectively a HandsomeLech and a KavorkaMan.
* ''Series/{{Coupling}}'': "The Girl With Two Breasts" is a sexy Israeli.
* One episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' had Christy (a [[ReallyGetsAround super-slutty]] friend of Penny's) becoming delighted at the discovery that her new beau is named "Howard Walowitz." "My first Jew!" she squeals. (Funny, we weren't aware she was [[GottaCatchEmAll collecting them]].)
* Obviously part of the {{backstory}} -- and the ongoing situation -- of the 1970s SitCom ''Series/BridgetLovesBernie''.
* The first three seasons of ''Series/{{Rhoda}}'' have Rhoda dating (then marrying, then separating from, then divorcing) the non-Jewish Joe Gerard.
* ''Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm''
** Larry is married to a [[ShiksaGoddess young WASP]].
** Larry has a fling with an anti-semitic Muslim woman who enjoys the degredation she feels when having sex with Jews.
* Lisa from ''Series/SavedByTheBell'' was originally written as a JewishAmericanPrincess so Screech's affection for her would have been this. She was rewritten when Lark Voorhees was cast.
* Elliott in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' has an ImagineSpot where she builds herself the perfect husband and he turns out to be Jewish. She then mentions that her parents wouldn't approve.
* ''Series/SeventhHeaven'', where Matt Camden meets, falls in love with, and secretly marries (all on the first date, no less! Although they hold an "official" marriage later for the sake of the parents) the lovely Sarah Glass. Matt Camden is the eldest child of Reverend Camden, while Sarah Glass is the only child of the extremely doting Rabbi Glass. Oops.
* In a ''Series/{{Suburgatory}}'' episode where resident [[AlphaBitch Alpha Blonde]] Dalia dyes her hair and starts hanging out with a nerdy wannabe-magician named Evan (who she earlier mocked and ignored), it's believed she's just covering up her father re-marrying and her not being included. Then Evan dumps her, a further social disgrace, and she returns to her old hair color and social circle. The end of the episode shows her [[Series/{{Homeland}} sneaking off to the garage to study the Torah]].
* It takes a while for him to realize it and then admit it, but Oliver has it bad for Felicity in ''Series/{{Arrow}}''. Barry Allen and Ray Palmer have also been smitten with Ms. Smoak, although in the comics Ray is Jewish.

* Music/FrankZappa's song "Jewish Princess" from ''Music/SheikYerbouti'' is a bit over the top, but a lot of things he lists in that song, crude though they may be, are definitely sexy.
* Music/NinjaSexParty's Danny Sexbang (real name Leigh Daniel Avidan) invokes this trope in some of their songs.
** Such as "The Decision":
--->''The choice should be so obvious\\
And although he is mysterious\\
Don't you want a man\\
Who's tall, whose name is Dan\\
And he's Jewish''
** Danny's typical attire in a Ninja Sex Party video is a [[Wrestling/OwenHart Blue Blazer]]-inspired leotard with a red Star of David.
* Music/JohnZorn is of Jewish descent and has mixed klezmer in his music. Some of his albums are very much inspired by Hebrew texts and UsefulNotes/{{Judaism}}. For instance, his album "Kristallnacht", the album "Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass" and his recordings with the bands Masada and Bar Kokhba to name a few.
* Rachel Stevens of the band Music/SClub7 is Jewish. While the rest of them had to audition, she was requested through her modelling agency to come in and record a demo tape. She found out she had been accepted within two weeks while the rest weren't chosen until after six months. In the TV show that came with the music, Rachel was presented as the glamorous beauty of the group. After splitting up with her boyfriend for the second season, she became a SerialRomeo.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* [[Literature/BookOfEsther Esther]] in Literature/TheBible was chosen to be the Great King's HotConsort and was [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman the Persian Empire's most beautiful woman]]. At least the King thought so. And some other Jewish people in the Bible are described as beautiful as well.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/KellyKelly played with this trope. She's half Jewish and Matt Stryker once referred to her as "the hottest Hebrew". She was Jerry Lawler's favourite Diva and was promoted as the MsFanservice of the women. But then again her being Jewish was hardly common knowledge and they rarely acknowledged it aside from the occasional line on commentary.

* In ''Theatre/MeAndMyDick'', the hottest girl in school is described as a "cute little Jewish girl".
* ''Jewtopia!'': One of the main characters of the play wants a Jewish girl so he doesn't have to make another decision in his life. [[spoiler:He marries someone posing as a Jew, but she converts at the very end of the play.]]
* ''Theatre/TheMerchantOfVenice'': Jessica might be the oldest example of this in popular western literature. Jessica is the beautiful daughter of Shylock, and she runs away with Lorenzo, the gentile nobleman in love with her.
* ''Theatre/TheJewOfMalta'': Barabbas' daughter Abigail in Creator/ChristopherMarlowe's Elizabethan era play is also a probable UrExample.
* ''Theatre/AbiesIrishRose'', a play from 1922 about a Jewish man who marries an Irish Catholic girl, and provided inspiration for ''Series/BridgetLovesBernie'' and the comedy of Stiller and Meara.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Website/TheOnion'' parodies this in the article "[[http://www.theonion.com/articles/area-man-saddened-to-realize-short-jewish-women-wi,2585/ Area Man Saddened to Realize Short Jewish Women with an Interest in Theater His Type]]."
* In an episode on race, [[Creator/BobChipman The Game Overthinker]] takes a moment to give examples of how he has nothing against various ethnic groups. In most cases he has no particular opinion but he likes the Japanese for their technology and Jews for their... [[Creator/RachelWeisz hotness]].
* There are certain {{Imageboards}} dedicated to fetishizing Jewish women. Not particularly remarkable by itself, but it's pretty funny whenever they clash with the Politically Incorrect boards who treat the GreedyJew stereotype as gospel truth. [[HypocriticalHumor Some members will unabashedly proclaim themselves fans of both]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode with Creator/DustinHoffman as Mr. Bergstrom, one of the things Lisa lists that make her trust him is his "Semitic good looks."
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'':
** The episode "Bar Mitzvah Shuffle": Etan Cohen, a sophisticated Jewish boy, seduces Steve's girlfriend, Debbie. Being Jewish is part of the charm, and Etan plays it for all it's worth.
** In "[[TheDollEpisode Stan's Food Restaurant]]", Steve wants to get with a crazy girl who believes her doll is alive. She mentions the doll "likes Hebrews" when Steve arranges a "date" between it and Snot..
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** When Peter finds out Lois was Jewish he is really into it, at least until his Catholic guilt kicks in.
** ''Family Guy'' also has a series of songs parodying the overt racism and homophobia of the Rat Pack, including Frank Sinatra singing a song called Jewish Nose.
--->'''Sinatra:''' She's got a big beautiful Jewish nose, and it's there two minutes early wherever she goes.
* Rachel, Tommy's first serious girlfriend in ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp''. Tommy himself, while only half-Jewish, attracts more females than the rest of the cast. This includes [[spoiler:Kimi]].
