The Las Vegas-based international travel dating website surveyed its members in the United States to determine which foreign accents they rate as most attractive.When it comes to dating and marriage, Israel is a country with three major populations: secular Jews, Orthodox Jews, and Arabs.Eighty percent of Israel's 7.3 million population is Jewish; the remaining 20 percent, or 1.4 million Israeli citizens, are Arabs, most of whom are Muslim, with a small minority of Christian and secular Arabs.The overall marriage rate in Israel was 55 percent.The median age of first marriage is increasing: in 2007, the median age was 27.6 for grooms and 25.3 for brides, up from 24.8 and 22.0, respectively, in 1980, indicating that higher education and pursuit of career options are increasingly important for Israeli young adults.

Almoni earned a Doctor of Philosophy in history from the University of Toronto.
Israeli women’s accents were ranked sexiest by the survey’s 1,164 male respondents, with Colombian accents taking second place.
