Jewrotica.org – a website whose specialty is, well, Jewish erotica – has started a unique ranking of Jewish clergy: it’s looking for “The Hottest Rabbis of 2013.”
The “first annual” competition is looking for “sexy rabbis worldwide” who will be recognized for “their raw awesomeness.” Criteria include intellectual prowess, involvement in social action or similar activities, and iconoclastic leanings that lead one to attend Shabbat services regularly.
“Rabbinic couples” are also eligible.
The contest’s name was changed, the website states, from “sexiest rabbis” to eliminate the possibility that anyone will think it’s “based on physical appearance.”
Nominations can be submitted here. The deadline is Nov. 13.
