Jewish Matchmaking

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

‘Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match’ were the words of a song where the characters were very clearly Jewish. In the Jewish community the role of a matchmaker is an important one. Judaism is a close-knit community with time-honored traditions on food, festivals and marriages, so it is natural that a Jewish boy or girl would look for a partner who shares the same values and beliefs.

Jewish Matchmaking sites understand the importance of this need to preserve the identity of this community, and work around this framework. A blend of the ancient art of Matchmaking with the advantages that modern-day technology has to offer is the special package available. The Jewish community is perhaps slightly more orthodox and strict than others and the Matchmaking process caters to that premise. Interactions are more value-based, and the desire is more towards building long-term relationships rather than one-night stands. While all individuals whether they are single, divorced or widowed, are encouraged to join up, the pairing is done by professionals who match factors ranging from age to interests to lifestyles.
