But like Wise Miller, he finds that his couples -- he's currently working with 65 -- often want counsel. It's wonderful to preside at the wedding of a couple you introduced, said Bernath, who runs educational and social programs for Jews of all levels of observance.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.She is also the Editor of I Antique Online an actively growing internet based resource community for people who buy, sell or collect antiques, collectibles and art. You can find Dianne’s fabulous retro and vintage kitchen, home and cottage collectibles at The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, CT, a 22,000 feet antique emporium with an in-house retro café. "Feed Me Bubbe" was created by a young man named Avrom from Massachusetts, who made it his mission to document the wonderful recipes his beloved grandma had treated the family to for years and years. It's very hard to catch up with Avrom, because when he isn't in his Bubbe's kitchen filming her making Chicken Soup or Luchen Kugel Cheese Blintzes or Mandel Bread etc., Avrom is taking a meeting with an agent or T-shirt designer or reporter etc.
You can just feel the love in the room as Avrom is filming his Bubbe and she is leaving behind the legacy of her talents as a Bubbe extraordinaire!
JDate is also more welcoming to gay Jews, asking whether clients are seeking men or women.
J site organizers say they won't turn gay Jews away, but the sites' algorithm isn't set up to accommodate them.
That's the new strategy of a group of rabbis who are launching a different kind of Jewish dating website called the "J sites" -- JMontreal, JMiami, JBoston and, coming soon, JNew York, JLondon, JBerlin and JHong Kong.
The database gives the matchmaker access to potentially thousands more singles than he or she could otherwise come to know.
Then there's The JMom.com, which allows Jewish mothers to play matchmaker by posting photos and profiles of their unmarried children.
