What’s Hebrew for ‘Playmate’?

Playboy took its venerated brand to the Holy Land this month. Here’s a peek inside the first issue, translated from Hebrew by Orli Matlow.

Letter from Hugh Hefner:
“Since its birth 65 years ago, Israel has been a nation with a lot of innovation, ability and invention, challenge and growth, a lot like the Playboy magazine itself.”

Feature Story: Kibbutz Debauchery:
“Scandinavian-European striptease parties and 374 drinks a night. Journey to the glory days of Kibbutz volunteerism.”

Playmate of the Month:
“The dancer and choreographer Marin Teremets, who left New York for Tel Aviv, is the hottest and sweetest thing imported from America since the chain Cinnabon.”
