The debate has raged for centuries.
It’s all Jewish mothers, fathers, and potential spouses talk about: what makes a nice Jewish boy?
Your prayers, my friends, have been answered.
Enter the four finalists of the Mr. Nice Jewish Boy Pageant 2017! Drawn from a diverse pool of contestants across Washington, DC, the top four aim to impress the voting public and a panel of celebrity judges. It’s an unmissable event.
“What I love about this pageant is people joining together and showing off their talents to create a fun event that benefits the community as a whole,” said organizer Jonathan Gilad. “At our last event, we had everything from matzoh ball soup making to a rabbi taking shots. So I’m very excited to see what our candidates will bring to the (Kiddush) table this time around.”
This event, which was last held four years ago, is set to take place August 13 at 2PM at Town Danceboutique in Shaw. It’s co-organized by NJB (Nice Jewish Boys) and NJG (Nice Jewish Girls).
Unlike other pageants, this one will not include a swimsuit competition. Instead, the four finalists will compete in three other areas: (1) an entry and introduction; (2) a talent; and (3) a question-and-answer session with the judges. Each of these three areas will have equal weight in the final voting tally.
Contestants will receive points by wowing the crowd, the judges, and the social-media public through video.
The winner will gain the crown, as well as a prize package including theatre tickets, courtesy of sponsor Theater J, and a donation to the charity of the winner’s choice.
While the competition is to crown a nice Jewish boy, drag hostess Queen Esther has other ideas. “A girl like me on the stage with boys like those. They won’t be nice for long,” she said, sipping imported Persian tea.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the GLOE (Gay Lesbian Outreach and Engagement) Program at the Edlavitch DCJCC and DC LGBT Center.
