They’re Hot, Black & Jewish!

Hanukkah starts tonight at sundown, ushering in the eight day festival of lights. So forget about having a white Christmas, cue up the Adam Sandler anthem and check out eight of the hottest black jews in Hollywood lighting up the menorah this year.

Aubrey Drake Graham

Prior to becoming one of the most successful rappers of the last five years, hooking up with Rihanna and getting into beefs with Chris Brown & Diddy, Drake started from the bottom… attending Jewish day school in a leafy Toronto suburb.

Rashida Jones She’s the youngest daughter of music mogul Quincy Jones and model/actress Peggy Lipton, but Rashida Jones is more than just a pretty face having carved out her own identity starring on Parks and Recreation and will soon pen the script to the upcoming Toy Story sequel. She’s all that and a bag of kosher chips!

Amar’e Stoudemire

The New York Knicks star didn’t grow up in a Jewish home but found out about his maternal Hebrew heritage and traveled to Israel, obtained a Star of David tattoo and now practices Judaism “spiritually and culturally.” Mazel tov!

Recovery Day! Red Wine Bath !! #Kinging #Blessed #Hebrews Getting ready for the eighth day feast.

Lisa Bonet Denise Huxtable has not aged! At 47, Lisa Bonet looks so damn good she must really be from A Different World. Leonard Albert Kravitz In case you didn’t know, there is no one cooler – and finer – than Lenny Kravitz. The 50-year-old (FIFTY!) ex-husband of Lisa Bonet has everyone asking Are You Gonna Go My Way?!

Maya Rudolph

She flawlessly morphed into Beyonce, Whitney Houston and Donatella Versace among others on SNL, but when it comes to comedy the freckle face beauty is a true original.

Boris Frederic Cecil Tay-Natey Ofuatey-Kodjoe

The son of a German psychologist and a Ghanaian physician, Real Husbands of Hollywood star Boris Kodjoe is one tall drink of water … and the thirst is real!

Tracee Joy Silberstein She’s Black-ish and Jewish, but Tracee Ellis Ross is also more than just Diana Ross’ daughter. Prior to her role on the new ABC hit sitcom, the 42-year-old worked the runway as a teenage supermodel, graduated from Brown University and became a contributing fashion editor for Mirabelland New York Magazine. Move over Diana, there’s another diva in the house!
