“Only Pretty, Young and Healthy, Please” — Jewish Matchmaking Taken to the Next Level

{thumbnail}


New York, NY (PRWEB) July 17, 2007

47% of all marriages involving Jewish persons are interfaith marriages. Is this a blessing or a serious problem? Well, whichever view we take on this issue, the truth is — there is many Jewish singles out there who would very much like to meet a like-minded Jewish soul, but since Jewish matchmaking is not an option for them, they just don’t know how.

Up until recently Jewish singles were almost completely dependent on Jewish matchmaking services, which in all honesty, tend to serve best only certain group of people. In Orthodox circles, if you are over 25 years old, you are already “way over the hill” and most of matchmakers will refuse even consider setting you up.

This is where the new phenomenon — online Jewish dating — comes in. More and more “unmarriageable” Jewish singles bypass Jewish matchmakers and decide to look for their soul mates online. Many Jewish singles have already met their beshert online. But the big problem is, that many people approach online dating without awareness of its potential danger.

“Online Jewish dating can be an incredibly interesting and exciting experience,” says Simi Braun from Jewish Matchmaking and Dating. “It can lead to marriage and life long bliss. Thousands of people have met their soul mates through online services. At the same time, many people with the same goal at heart, have been emotionally or physically hurt, conned out of all their savings and left embarrassed and psychologically injured.”

Simi, who’s met her fiancé through online Jewish dating services, claims that it’s just as easy to attract the right person, as it is the wrong person. The key to successful dating is knowledge. That’s why she has dedicated her free time to create a website (http://www.JewishMatchmakingAndDating.com), that will help Jewish singles find out how to go about Internet dating.

The Internet, with all its dangers, brings along a new wave off hope. Jewish singles are no longer dependent on gold digging matchmakers. They can now take these important matters in their own hands. Saying this, we have to remember that Internet is a potentially dangerous territory. It’s important that every Jewish single learns how to use online dating services properly and Jewish Matchmaking and Dating is there to support them.

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 3, 2010

Those looking to meet Jewish singles now have an opportunity to do so for free at JewishMatches.com, a brand new website that launched today.

According to Internet Matches’ Social Media Director Lisa Caraffi, “We intend for JewishMatches.com to provide a safe, welcoming and highly friendly forum where like-minded singles who share similar values, traditions and beliefs can feel free to express their views about whatever matters to them.”

Ms. Caraffi adds, “Of course, our main emphasis is dating, where people can chat, meet, build a friendship and fall in love. Given the latest research shows online matchmaking is the #3 way couples meet these days (work and school being #1, followed by friends and family #2), we believe there’s definitely room in the online space for another Jewish website community.”

JewishMatches.com is a new business venture from Internet Matches LLC, a media company with a strong track record in social networking and the ecommerce website arena. JewishMatches.com is the first of several online dating and chat websites to be launched in the coming months.

To spark new membership in JewishMatches.com, they are offering those who sign up early a free membership. Internet Matches emphasizes that this free membership comes with no strings attached.

“Unlike a number of dating websites with introductory offers, we’re offering new members full website access along with their free membership,” states Ms. Caraffi. “They can create a profile, send and receive Winks, emails, online chat and video chat and do all of the same stuff as paying members. We’re not going to ask for credit card information either,” confirms Ms. Caraffi. It really is a no obligation opportunity to become one of our first members.”

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 8, 2006

Step aside, John McClane. Move over, Axel Foley. Don’t make us laugh, Mordechai Jefferson Carver (aka The Hebrew Hammer). There’s a new action star in town and he always defeats the bad guys, gets the girl and just happens to be Jewish.

Come view the award-winning short film “A.P.U.: Art, Pot and Underwear” that Film Threat awarded 4.5 out of 5 stars and calls “a look at Hollywood you’re not likely to find anywhere else” and anoints lead actor Scooter “a new God of indie film”, comparing the Scoot to Jeff Bridges in “The Big Lebowski”. Does Scooter make off with Jewish action star Kiko Rosenberg’s wife’s panties? Tune in to the Exclusive movie link: http://www.grassrootstheory.org/apu.htm

“A.P.U.: Art, Pot and Underwear” is presented by Landau Motion Pictures. This is an Exclusive engagement during Hanukkah month ’06 only. “A.P.U.” will next be seen as an extra on the “Take Out” DVD. The new black comedy “Take Out” is about a guy who eliminates fast food and stars Justin Walker, Daniel Roebuck (“The Fugitive”) and Chase Masterson (Star Trek: DS9). Next up for Landau Motion Pictures is the much-talked about and controversial horror feature “Bryan Loves You” about the true story of a cult that takes over an AZ town, starring Tony Todd (“Candyman”), George Wendt (Cheers) and Tiffany Shepis (“Abominable”). “Bryan Loves You” is slated for a Halloween 2007 release.
