Sarah Silverman answered questions about her Jewish identity on Thursday at the Presidential Conference in Jerusalem.

When asked about her views on intermarriage, Silverman replied, "In terms of Jews not mating with Jews enough, look, if the Jewish guys in America were like the Adonises here, and not the way they are in the US, which is more like a human sneeze."

Silverman was also asked why this is only the first time she has visited Israel, despite the fact that her sister lives in the country. She explained, "It's taken me all this time to come here, and I realized it was because I was afraid of the unknown."
