Of the 660 Nobel prizes awarded between 1901 and 1990, over 160 were awarded to Jews. In the end, Jews win more Nobel prizes than any other ethnicity. They win 40 times more than should be expected, based upon the small size of the Jewish population.

Below are some notable Jewish Nobel Prize Winners and what they would likely say about themselves in their JDate “About Me” essays:

Albert Einstein
About Me: Any Jewish women out there looking to share some electromagnetism? I’m into physics, smoking a pipe and growing my hair out. When I’m not busy listening to Mozart, I’m into relativistic cosmology, capillary action, classical problems of statistical mechanics and their application to quantum theory. People assume because of my genius status that I have special talents, but I’m really just a very curious person. Want to make a connection beyond space and time? Send me an email!

Henry Kissinger
About Me: “Nobody will ever win the battle of the sexes. There’s just too much fraternizing with the enemy.” My life as a noble statesman has taught me that that power is the ultimate aphrodisiac (along with oysters and kletzenbrot). I’m on JDate to find a woman who is into power, but also enjoys upbeat conversations about foreign policy, the New York Yankees and drinking bourbon and water at Ben Stein’s house. Most women find my black-rimmed glasses, fashionable black-on-black attire and Bavarian baritone (karaoke anybody?) to be my most appealing features. If interested, send an email; unless you’re a hippie, communist or have a lot of drama (I had enough of that in the ‘70s).

Boris Pasternak
About me: Even as an author it’s hard to describe myself in these bios but I’ll try… Josef Stalin once referred to me as “a weeping Bolshevik” and “Emily Dickinson in trousers,” if that gives you any hint to my personality. I wrote a little novel called Dr. Zhivago in 1956, but it wasn’t read in my homeland of Russia until 1988. My interests include snow, large furry hats and not smiling. I received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1958, but wasn’t on hand to receive it due to political pressures within my homeland. If you would like to have a date, send me an email or put me on your Hot List (no former Soviet Bloc mail-order brides please).
