Overall, if you’re committed to finding “the one,” we recommend shelling out a couple of extra bucks and subscribing to JDate.
(.99/month, .99/month for six months) This service may not be exclusively Jewish, but it’s open to all shapes, sizes… Match lets you describe your beliefs beyond checking the “Jewish” box, though the site’s other profile questions ask for more information about living preferences and physical descriptors over personality traits.
To help you choose the site or app for finding your match, we ranked some of the most popular ones based on aesthetics, user friendliness and, of course, ease of discovering your next date… Jswipe (Free) This smartphone app offers its customers the most pleasing visuals, easy-to-use systems and quick matches, all for free.
Because of that, it came in at the top of our list for taking the dating game to the web.
It works by connecting your profile through Facebook without posting on your wall, the name, age and “tribe” of each match is listed along with a couple photos, and you can search matches by distance from your location to swipe left or right when you find a certain someone you think might be riding the same wavelength.
JDate ($39.99/month, $22.99/month for six months) At almost $40 for one month on this site’s basic plan, JDate is by and far the most expensive dating service for Jewish singles on the market. Like many other dating sites, JDate asks you for your name and location when registering, but also asks questions about your smoking preferences, physical characteristics, profession and “Jewish-ness.” The site itself isn’t super sleek looking, but it’s easy to use and offers the largest selection of matches out of the websites we reviewed.
Members describe in detail their Jewish background, ancestry, participation in Jewish causes, their commitment to Israel and the Jewish people.
