Our Review

J-Date was the first website to promote online relationships for Jewish singles. It was launched in the same period as the Meetic or other Match. It was therefore a pioneer and is even one of the first dating sites on the Internet to have emerged. This explains its presence on several continents.

Jdate has a big name of the Jewish meetings with some competitors. There are few who will be able to compete especially in 2018 where J-Date has planned campaigns to promote its French platform. Now owned by the Affinitas group, it’s a safe bet that J-Date will become the OkCupid for Jewish encounters in the years to come.
