Jewish Dating Insider: JDate

Jewish Dating Review has an insider on JDate, the largest and most popular dating destination for Jews around the world.

1) How many Jewish members do you have?
JDate is the largest and most popular dating destination for Jews around the world.  It is more than an online personals site; it’s a community. There are approximately 600,000 profiles on, and we’re always growing.

2) What religious affiliations do you cater to? (i.e. orthodox, reform, Hasidic)
JDate is composed of smart, attractive, successful people from all walks of life, all professions, all religious affiliations and all ages, living life to its fullest and looking to connect, network and find romance within the Jewish faith. The site is open to all Jewish affiliations, from very conservative to unaffiliated/secular.  We pride ourselves on being the largest online community for Jewish singles looking to connect, regardless of religious affiliation.

3) What is your price and trial offer?
A basic member (non-paying) can create a profile, post photos and search for members. They can also receive weekly “New Matches” emails and have access to JDate travel & events, free 24-hour customer care phone consultants, online personals help & advice on the site, success stories and polls, as well as the Giving Back volunteer program.

4) Features offered: chat etc.
Currently, JDate offers the following services:  full detailed photo profiles, easy onsite uploading of photos, email, chat rooms, detailed search capabilities, instant messaging, “Flirts,” weekly “New Matches” emails, a ”Who’s Currently Online” feature, an anonymous matching system called Click, “Hot Lists” to help members organize their love life, Jewish singles parties, travel adventures, a volunteer program and more.  JDate is also always looking to add new features and discover new avenues to bring Jewish singles together…stay tuned!

5) Service type: member contacts the person they’re interested in, matchmaker contacts member if they think there is a match or other?
Our members have the ability to email, instant message or talk to other members in our chat rooms.  When a member sends a message (email, IM or Flirt) it goes straight to the member’s onsite inbox. That member is then notified by JDate’s automatic system that they have a message waiting. If they choose to write back, they simply “reply” and the message is sent back to the other member’s inbox, etc. All member-to-member correspondence is done completely onsite so that everyone can feel safe and remain anonymous until they choose to take it further.

Another way members can meet is through our unique Click feature, which lets members “click” Yes, No or Maybe to other members’ profiles. All Clicks are anonymous until another member clicks Yes back and then we notify both parties that they have a Yes-Yes match. The rest is up to them – and they can email each other from there.

Most members find each other use our Search feature, which allows them to narrow down their options by selecting specific criteria like age, location, religious affiliation, how often they keep kosher, if they go to temple, physical characteristics and more.

6) What is the age range of your typical members?
Although JDate caters to all ages 18 and over, our largest group of members is in their mid 20’s – 30’s.  We also have a near 50:50 ratio of men to women…by far the best in the industry. 

7) How many Jewish couples have you matched up?
Although this number is impossible to gauge, we do have thousands of “Happy Endings” (success stories) on file and hundreds available online in our Mazeltov section:
And of course…everyone knows someone who met their loved one on JDate!
