I don't begrudge anyone who married outside the faith.I think in modern times interfaith marriages are important.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.JSwipe is less than a year old, and founder David Yarus says he’s already aware of at least one marriage that occurred thanks to the app--and the Almighty.
“I believe in the historical pressure put on our community.
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.
“It's not necessarily a deal-breaker, but it is kind of a top priority.”Anecdotally, Jewish millennials, especially ones that aren’t traditionally Orthodox, are wildly heterogenous--and their dating app desires change with one’s mood.
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.
