Those searching for their life’s partner can now access a worldwide database thanks to a hookup between J-Junction and overseas Jewish dating services.

JRetroMatch.com, SawYouAtSinai.com and j-junction.com.au have unveiled their new Jewish Matchmaking partnership.

Marc Goldmann, founder of JRetroMatch.com, a global Jewish Matchmaking organization, stated, “We are accomplishing for Jewish singles in USA and around the world, what J-junction has been successfully doing in Australia.  We are thrilled to have found a dedicated and strong partner to assist us in expanding our ability to help Jewish Singles all over the world find their spouse.”

Rabbi Mendal Kastel, who spearheaded the partnership, explains its benefits to the single-and-searching Aussie. “JRetroMatch and SawYouAtSinai are a tremendous resource to Jewish singles, both affiliated and non-affiliated. They have advanced matchmaking software, a database of over 30,000 singles and a track record of a thousand successful shidduchim [matches], so we are honored to have this exclusive partnership with them in Australia.”

JRetroMatch model was created to help marriage-minded Jewish singles find their soul mates.  Unlike other online Jewish dating services, JRetroMatch combines the human element of hands-on matchmaking with the convenience, ease and real-time of the Internet. The site was designed so technology hones in on corresponding dating specifications and experienced matchmakers, review the more subtle personality and compatibility aspects of the match before members’ profiles are shown to each other.

“Dating can be hard for anyone,” explained Michelle Lewis, the head matchmaker and general manager of the j-junction site. “Here in Australia, Jewish singles, if they can’t travel to the US or Europe to date, have an especially hard time, because the dating pool simply isn’t that big.” j-junction was created to help these singles meet each other in a more discreet and confidential manner than online dating.

Lewis encourages the singles she works with to look at the matchmaking process as a convenient energy and time saver in what can be an exhausting dating process. “Having a matchmaker, as old-fashioned as that sounds,” Lewis remarks, “means that sticky questions like, where do you want to live, or, are you ok if I have kids from a previous marriage, are addressed before you even go on that first date. You don’t have to go through that experience of meeting someone fascinating at a party, only to find out they’re leaving to London the next day.

The revamped and updated j-junction Aussie Jewish Dating site is now online now has all of the key matchmaking features and functionality of the JRetroMatch and SawYouAtSinai platform. In other words, if you live in Australia and have lots of single friends, you better start keeping your weekends free—you’re going to have a lot of weddings to attend.
