The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2017


Jenna Jameson

Former adult film star

Once the biggest adult film star in the world, Jenna Jameson transformed herself over the past year into one of the world’s top converts to Judaism. Born Catholic, the legendary Jameson embraced Judaism when she met her fiancé, Israeli-born businessman Lior Bitton.

She quickly became one of the most outspoken defenders of Judaism, Israel, and the Jewish people on social media, tweeting constant statements of support for Israel and Zionism, pictures of the Jewish food she cooks for her husband, and lashing out at antisemites across the spectrum; most notably, in a knock down, drag out fight with notorious former Klansman and ferocious antisemite David Duke.

“I’ve been a warrior all my life,” she said. “Now I am applying my strength to defending the Jewish people and Israel.”

It appears Jameson is putting her money where her mouth is, expressing the desire to move to Israel after her marriage. In the meantime, she has given birth to her and Bitton’s first child. (Photo credit: Instagram.)
