Last summer, I experienced this pressure first-hand.
A prominent rabbi argued to me that too few students were getting married in college.
When I explained that many of us believe in first completing school or starting a career before making the supreme commitment, his response was a cool, "Why?
" This encounter deepened my concern that there was a growing disconnect between our spiritual leaders and my reality as a young adult.
Many Jewish singles that are looking for a mate of either sex (whether woman, man, girl, or boy), or just a date, look online on the web at the many Jewish dating sites, Jewish matchmaking services, or free Jewish dating service websites that exist on the web online.
As finding a mate is important for many Jewish singles, both women and men, and because many Jewish people want to only marry within their religion and faith, a large number of free Jewish dating service websites have been created online over the last few years to help these people.
UT is committed to helping you find the right person, whatever your level of observance (Orthodox, Modern Orthodox, Conservative, Conservadox etc...).
All our members have one thing in common: They are proud to be Jewish.
After making a match these services and the people involved hope to have a Jewish wedding, with a Jewish wedding ring.
The position the rabbi advocated was completely out of touch with my reality, and as far as I could see, he seemed unwilling to even consider the needs of a diverse and changing community.
As repeatedly shown in the media, Orthodox Judaism is notorious for its emphasis on marriage, and true to this reputation, our leaders tend to advocate marriage at a young age.
