Final Thoughts

JDate is a great site for any Jewish singles looking to find love within members of their faith community. The site boasts a huge number of both male and female members of the Jewish faith, most of whom are working adults with at least a college degree. Most are here to find someone with whom they would be able to spend their life with, building a family based on the Jewish culture and beliefs. However, there are a handful who are not Jewish or no longer Jewish. Their prices are slightly pricier compared to competitors, but given how niche the community is, as well as the additional features they offer, it is fairly worth the price.
