The Palm Beach Jewish Times
Finding a Jewish mate can be a difficult task. Complaints of meat-market bar scenes are common. Now there is a way to meet Jewish singles in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Jewish Quality Singles (www.jqs.com) posts a web site complete with pictures and bios of men and women from all over the world. Men seeking women and women seeking men are divided in age categories.
The site also boasts contests, blind date horror stories and success stories. Singles can contact Mrs. Devora Alouf, the love expert whose "life mission is to bring successful Jewish matches to fruition."
Self-proclaimed matchmaker Israel Alouf said the site, which has been operating for more than 10 years, gets at least 500,000 hits a month.
There is no way to calculate the membership because of cyclical nature of the membership, with participants joining and then leaving once they have met someone.
"We are making matches all across the world so no Jew has to go outside the faith and say there's no one for me" Mr. Alouf said.
Membership fees are by the month and singles must join to contact prospective mates. Browsing is free. Log on to www.jqs.com to view the site.
