May 11 17 Iyar Torah Portion. We raised our children in a home that observed all the major Jewish holidays. I made our children aware of their culture and heritage. Our son was bar mitzvahed and attended Hebrew school for five years. His friends were all Jewish as he grew up, and he attended March of the Living. He is the last Jewish male in our family, since my one and only cousin is a female and I am an only child.
I know this may be weird but as a young girl, I have struggled with my idea of love and relationships in general. This article really helped me and I very much want to thank them!! Not weird at all, I'm so glad this article was helpful to you!
You're very welcome, on behalf of the Chabad. I am sure that getting to know each others sibilings goes far toward having mutual support if needed.
The site is good no doubt, God bless Chabad. I found my husband this way. We have been through a lot but having the same values, and working towards the same things, makes a huge difference. My Nan was Jewish and I was not brought up with knowledge of Judaism. The mind leading the heart and not the other way is certainly great advice. Thank you, and this from a non Jew.
In other words, it's a high-stakes, high-pressure job interview with a pre-determined outcome taken on by people with no experience, hyperactive hormones, and heavy expectations. It sounds like this system could use some tweaking.
Seeking Jewish Woman of The Word After being divorced for almost a year, which was my commitment to let myself heal a bit, I'm ready and interested in seeing a woman of Jewish descent and culture.
Any suggestions? Thanks Steve Reply. Go to shul. Go to several. Meet the Rabbis and fellow congregants at the kiddish after services and get the lay of the land.
Go to the after services lunch if there is one. See what kind of adult classes and activities it offers. It is most important to find the one where you fit in.
Interfaith dating always presents challenges, and Judaism is a notoriously close-knit religion that traditionally forbids interfaith marriages. For example, Deuteronomy warns "Do not intermarry with them they will turn your children away from following me to serve other gods.". Dear Jewish Singles, I wanted to share with you some of my personal dating experiences, and how those may inform your dating life during this challenging and . The Jewish dating system is taken primarily from a book called "Seder Olam Rabba," dating back to the 2nd century CE and attributed to Rabbi Yosef ben Halafta. The sources for the dates in Halafta's book come from rabbinic traditions recorded in the Talmud as well as numerous chronologies written in the Hebrew Bible.
Have a talk with the Rabbi - be frank - and listen to what he says. My husband and I belong to a large shul and have many friends, male and female, who also belong. Some are single, some are not. My best friend married a man she was introduced to this way. I married a man I was introduced to by a close friend. It only took 3 dates to know he was THE one.
In short, put yourself in a social environment where people who match your "wish list" congregate. It isn't a nightclub or bar, I guarantee!

God willing, you will find her. I met my husband when I was 27 years old and he was My best friend was dating his golf partner and she played "shadchen" for us. The first date I thought we had a lot in common, worked in the same industry, liked the same things - and among the "qualifications" he had was that his family was religious as were mine. Neither of us were especially "Frum" but we both wanted to run traditional Jewish homes and live a traditional Jewish life.
He was everything I wanted in a husband and I had every qualification on his "list" yes he had a list of what he wanted in a wife.
That was 54 years ago. And every year since has shown exactly how beshert we really were. Our life is centered around our family, our shul community and our dear shul friends. Too insular for you?

Perhaps, now more than ever is a time to find someone to be at your side as we journey towards a world that will never be the same. And yet, I would urge you, now more than ever, to find a way to take this journey with someone at your side.

We are rooting for you. Dating is never easy, how so much more so during these unusual times. We believe in you, care for you, and applaud your faith in a better tomorrow-together. Good luck! Scan this QR code to visit this page online:.
