Individuals do not have to be Jewish in order to join JDate.
Members can mark their Jewish affiliation on their profile or select options like “Willing to Convert,” “Not Sure if Willing to Convert,” and “Not Willing to Convert.” While JDate is oriented towards the Jewish population, it has also attracted those seeking Jewish mates.
"The matchmaker adds a human element to the digital element," said Rabbi Chaim Lipskar, who went online with JMiami two months ago and has signed up 150 people so far.Rabbi Yisroel Bernath, who founded JMontreal in September and is a matchmaker himself, said he won't stay involved with his matches unless they want him to.But like Wise Miller, he finds that his couples -- he's currently working with 65 -- often want counsel.But the greater goal is what's known as "Jewish continuity." Among the world's estimated 14 million Jews, about half marry non-Jews -- an intermarriage rate many find dishearteningly high.To facilitate more Jewish-Jewish marriages, Bernath does not question the religiosity of JMontreal's 1,500 or so users. "It's to save an endangered species." Or, as Rabbi Mayshe Schwartz put it after launching JBoston just weeks ago: "We believe in Jews meeting Jews and having more Jews." The approach is working, say the J site organizers, who are mostly affiliated with the Orthodox Chabad movement.
