Jewish singles dating

A 20-something with dark brown hair, showing off buff arms in a wifebeater (with the insignia of Jewish fraternity) flashed by on the screen and against my better judgment, I swooned a little.At least since the Shtetl days when East European Jews would visit their local shadchan (matchmaker) to pair up singles in suitable matches, the people of the book have been obsessed with matters of the heart – sort of.People have been trying to kill us for thousands of years.We've managed to survive, and I want to be a part of that tradition.In fact, while Ben actively seeks to date and marry someone who is Jewish, he sets his filter on JSwipe to cut out matches who are kosher, saying it was “too much of a lifestyle difference.”Here's the weird thing about being a non-Orthodox Jewish single seeking other Jews: you don't want to seem too Jewish, or rather, you want to convey the right level of Jewishness you want in a partner (or a hookup).“It's not necessarily something I'm exclusive about but I'd like to focus on dating someone who is Jewish,” said Victoria Reuveni, a 27-year-old Jewish sexologist in the Los Angeles.

One would think these same concerns would not influence Jews, especially Jewish millennials of 2014 who tend to identify less with Judaism than previous generations.What was more fascinating to me is that both Orthodox and non-religious Jewish friends had been using it and talking to me about it in the past month.Although you can filter for only Jewish options on many dating sites, and even denominations of Judaism on others, JSwipe's layout somehow made it all easier.A sad-faced orange Star of David flashed across the i Phone screen as we swiped left on “James” (not his real name).The gentleman was listed as Orthodox and kosher, which is way too religious for my friend whose JSwipe account I was test-driving. “Shalom.” and onto to the next nice Jewish boy (or nice Jewish girl if we wanted to go that route).
