JDate, the largest and best known of the online Jewish dating services, has more than 500,000 members worldwide.
Of those, more than 5,000 members registered as "from another religious stream"-- read: not Jewish.
I’m willing to venture a guess that most of us are on JDate to find dates who are “J.” In other words, it’s probably important for most of us to meet other Jewish people to date and ultimately marry.
I think this is a pretty reasonable goal and assumption; after all, that’s why JDate exists as a separate site from one of the big, all-encompassing options.
This is based on a belief system nearly 4,000 years old — so it’s been tried and tested.
I really have no answers here – just lots of questions!
So imagine the dismay of someone (let’s call her Sarah) who meets a nice young man on a Jewish site (let’s call him Dan) who turns out !
And he didn’t have one Jewish parent or some distant Jewish relatives, or heck, even Jewish friends – he was not even familiar with Judaism.
I am an American-born girl, and the first to defend my Americanism in an argument; yet so strong are family ties, and the memory of a happy thirteen-month sojourn in the a few years ago, that I frequently find myself trying to see things from the Nazis' point of view and to had excuses for the things they do—to the dismay of our liberal-minded friends and the hurt confusion of my husband.
He had known other girls and, as I was twenty-five before we married, I had had my share of other men's attention.
