Coming of Age

The assumption that every Jewish adult has had a Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration is presumptuous. The assumption that every Jewish adult (other than a convert) has become a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is logical.

Kosher Cinema: July Movie Picks For JDaters®

Greeting, JDaters®! Summer’s here, the 4th of July is nearly upon us, and if you saw Prometheus, you’re probably wondering what the hell happened. June was filled with some big hits like Snow White, Prometheus, and Brave. However, it was also filled with some notable misfires like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, That’s My Boy, and Rock of Ages.

It’s Not About The Status

In many, if not most, Jewish parables, the righteous and scholarly are often presented as living in a state of poverty. Indeed, it might often seem as if poverty is an attribute of righteousness. As Tevye the Milkman (Fiddler on the Roof) says: “It’s no shame to be poor… but it’s no great honor either!”

A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Dates

There is no denying it; looks are definitely a factor when it comes to dating. Are they everything? Absolutely not! But they do matter. And by “matter,” I’m not talking about the vanity of only dating people who would rate as a 10 on the Jew-licious meter.

And that little nugget of information right there is a huge reason why you need a profile picture.
