Devorah K. from Berlin, Germany met her match Yitzhak A. of Brooklyn, NY through SawYouAtSinai.com, the largest Jewish matchmaker network in the world. It was one of the Jewish Dating service’s 350 matchmakers, Sima Bachrach, who saw this match’s potential, and knew that despite the distance, that it was a quality suggestion. Luckily, Devorah and Yitzhak agreed.
Before they began dating through SawYouAtSinai, they had faced opposite dating challenges. Devorah found there to be limited compatible matches in Germany, whereas Yitzhak, on the other hand, comes from one of the largest Jewish singles’ communities in the world. One had felt underwhelmed with suggestions, while the other felt overwhelmed with possibilities. SawYouAtSinai gave Devorah the accessibility she needed through its extensive database of 30,000 Jewish singles, and Yitzhak did not have to undertake the task of searching through hundreds of potential matches suggestions- the matchmakers did the work for him!
“They could have easily dismissed the entire idea claiming the distance was an insurmountable obstacle,” says matchmaker Sima, “Instead, with a bit of prodding from their matchmaker, they remained open minded.” After a couple of months of video dating, and encouragement from their matchmaker, Yitzhak sent Devorah a ticket to New York, and within two weeks they were engaged.
Devorah and Yitzhak are the Jewish Dating service’s 639th engagement since the site began in December 2003.
