JDate is a popular Jewish singles community with around 54,000 members. The site's free basic membership allows sending ice-breakers and e-cards. Upgrading, which costs $39.99 per month grants full access and allows emailing and instant messaging.

JDate is by far the biggest online network for single Jewish people.


Since 1997, this company has been a provider of online dating services through it's parent company Spark.com. JDate is constantly evolving to keep pace and offers an respectable range of features that members will find both useful and fun.

For those who want to get started quickly, the quick search will show members within a certain distance. Alternatively, the matchmaking tool, "Your Matches" can be used to display a list of compatible people who live nearby.

The community

Most of the profiles are informative, and contain photos. Members have the option to tell others about their level of commitment to the Jewish faith including Kosher and Synagogue attendance. There's also a Q&A section where it's possible for members to compare responses to certain questions.

Membership

Joining JDate is free, however full access to the site is restricted until you buy a subscription. Subscriptions start at $39.99 for 1 month. However discounts are available when joining for longer periods. Free members have the ability to browse the site, search, view profiles, create favorite lists, and send flirts and e-cards. Messaging is only available to paying members.



There are members seeking all types of relationships, from marriage to new coffee friends.


JDate has a number of other interesting features too, such as “You Click”, which allows you to give an instant Yes/No response when presented with members who may be a potential match. There's also a “reverse match” tool that lets you see who's looking for someone like you.

Other things of interest include:

  • A help and advice section
  • Synagogue directory
  • A weekly online magazine

A micro-blogging feature called Kibitz Corner, like Twitter, appears on the homepage and lets members post short answers to topical questions. It's a fun way to get involved and let others know you're on the site.

Does it Work?

In summary, JDate is a good choice for Jewish singles. This is due to its large community and range of features available. There's also a pretty good selection of resources such as the synagogue directory and a Jewish magazine that posts details on events and other matters of interest.

The site has members seeking all types of relationships, from marriage to new coffee friends. The decent range of matching tools help to locate compatible others and the popularity of the site ensures that the chances of finding love are excellent.
