“It was an honor being chosen as the Chosen JDater,” Jeremy said. “I had a lot of fun reading about the women who entered to win a date with me. It was refreshing to see that there were women who shared a lot of the same values as me.”
Astronomy plays an important role in Jewish life because it is the means by which we calculate the months and, therefore, the holidays-based on the cycles of the moon.
