Do jews dating non jews
I got a few dates out of JDate but decided it wasn't for me ultimately.
I'm still dating, mostly guys I meet through friends."Moral of the story?
I went on one date that is memorable for many reasons, but one of the funniest is that I seemed to know more about Judaism than he did.
Our date happened in late fall, and we were discussing Yom Kippur and the Jewish holidays, and he seemed to be unclear on which holidays celebrate which events in the Jewish tradition.
We raised our children in a home that observed all the major Jewish holidays.
I made our children aware of their culture and heritage.
I didn't want to push too hard on it during the date in case I was wrong (this wasn't MY culture, after all), but he seemed to think that Yom Kippur celebrated the migration of the Israelites through the dessert.
(The lengths guys will go to for girl-on-girl action...) The funny thing is, this phenomenon reminded us something not so strange at all that's happened among a number of friends: Non-Jews joining JDate. Three non-Jews live to tell the tale: JDate Gentile: Mark, 29, Chicago Actual Religion: Raised Seventh-day Adventist Church Why JDate: "I had enough confidence to sign up for JDate mostly because I had previously been in a long-term relationship with a Jewish girl while I was in college.I wrote her an email the following day and secured a second date asap. I found out that you could sign up for JDate as a non-Jewish person." Full disclosure: "I said that I wasn't Jewish, but that I was Italian and a lot of the cultural values that I'd observed in my Jewish friends (an emphasis on family and food, for instance) were part of my upbringing as well.So I tried to bridge the gap."The response: "I never got any backlash that I recall from other women on the site, but I did keep it relatively quiet with friends because I didn't want female Jewish friends to feel like I was stealing their men.Niche dating sites exist for a reason: So that birds of a feather can flock together.(See: Beautiful People.com, Farmers Only.com) But rules are meant to be broken.
