Jewish dating services canada
Rabbi Yisroel Bernath, who founded JMontreal in September and is a matchmaker himself, said he won't stay involved with his matches unless they want him to.But like Wise Miller, he finds that his couples -- he's currently working with 65 -- often want counsel.
But not so typically, they don't get to browse a database full of potential mates and their glamour shots.We are not new; we have been around since the dawn of time. We do not post your bio or expose you to the computer world. Our questionnaire is kept confidential and is only accessible to Soulmates administrators. Our matchmaker, Eve Potok has been highly recommended by our friends and clients for having found them their Soulmate.Jewish people do not live exclusively in Israel but all over the world; our services are needed more than ever before. We do network with professional matchmakers and with your permission they have access to our singles photos and profiles. At Soulmates we know that matches are made in heaven; angels are needed to do the work on earth. We also know that when two souls are united the sparks fly. Soulmates is the ultimate in Jewish seeking Jewish.Our client base consists of reform to modern orthodox singles.We know that one of the best ways for two people to meet is through a common friend or relative.But the greater goal is what's known as "Jewish continuity." Among the world's estimated 14 million Jews, about half marry non-Jews -- an intermarriage rate many find dishearteningly high.
To facilitate more Jewish-Jewish marriages, Bernath does not question the religiosity of JMontreal's 1,500 or so users. "It's to save an endangered species." Or, as Rabbi Mayshe Schwartz put it after launching JBoston just weeks ago: "We believe in Jews meeting Jews and having more Jews." The approach is working, say the J site organizers, who are mostly affiliated with the Orthodox Chabad movement.
Wise Miller investigated, and found that the man was nervous about prying or offending.
She gently suggested that he could pose weightier questions, and the dating continued.
The database gives the matchmaker access to potentially thousands more singles than he or she could otherwise come to know.
When a match seems promising, the matchmaker releases profiles and pictures to both parties. Jennifer Wise Miller, a married social worker and volunteer matchmaker with JMontreal, requests a call after the first date. There was the woman, for example, who wondered why her date would ask nothing deeper than where she liked to shop.
At Soulmates we are that caring friend or relative that speaks very highly of you to members of the opposite sex.
