Michael had moved from New York City after finishing Rabbinical School to become the first full-time Rabbi in Davidson, North Carolina. Only one thing was missing: a true partner with whom to share his experience.

Jacquie was about to give up on JDate, but her father insisted she give it one more try and paid for her final subscription. Her membership was about to expire when Michael popped up on her screen. After a gentle nudge from her cousin, she responded to his message. After putting Michael off for a couple weeks, the date was finally set!

Michael and Jacquie were supposed to meet at 8pm, but the snowstorm headed their way was determined to derail their plans. Jacquie called Michael at 4pm to cancel, but before she could think of a reason to object, Michael moved the date up to 6pm and hung up the phone.

The snow had just started to fall as Jacquie came around the corner. After just 5 minutes, both of them knew this would be something special. After four hours and five inches of snow, that feeling had grown ten-fold.

Their first date ended, but the second, third, fourth, fifth, etc., soon followed. Thus began the saga of Jacquie, a Mexican-American Jewish social worker and Michael, a Rabbi from New York searching for lifelong romance.

The rest is history…….Michael asked Jacquie to marry him on June 24, 2010 (and all in Spanish for his munequita!)

A special note from Michael:  “I cannot thank JDate enough. I have always wanted to find that “special one” and I had almost given up… As a Rabbi, more than 50% of my weddings are because of JDate. I believe so strongly in the service you provide. You help people find their b’shert. Muchos Gracias, Toda Rabah.”
