Speed dating jewish san francisco
This month, for example, there have already been two events for Jewish singles at a North Beach bar, one for people 40 to 55 and another for people 49 and older. 27, an event for 25- to 35-year-old Jewish singles is scheduled for Azul (a lounge and tapas bar near Union Square) to be followed two weeks later by a Jewish-themed gathering for similar ages at a hip bar. Don Rosenthal went to a Hurry Date event for Jewish singles last month.“It was an interesting experience, though I’m not sure if it’s exactly my style,” says Rosenthal, 55, of San Mateo.
A dozen or so speed-dating events are held in the Bay Area every month — with about one-third for Jewish singles — although online dating remains the more popular option.
In 2000, back before online dating took off, the JCC of San Francisco began hosting a Speed Dating program in which “thousands” of singles took part, according to the JCCSF’s Yossi Offenberg, who ran the events.
