Yes, that’s right. A new aged sensitive guy who has decided enough is enough. When you speak to Steven you feel his passion for j-junction. Steven openly explains, “j-junction is an organization which actively brings Jewish “single” people together. It’s an old practice with a modern twist. Confidentiality is the key together with a highly personalized service.”

j-junction has a lot to brag about with 5 engagements, 2 weddings, 15 current relationships under its belt in just seven months. It is keen to have more singles aged 23-50 register on its database and even more eager to take onboard more matchmakers. Steven believes the success is due to the dedication of each matchmaker who devotes quality time in really understanding what their member is looking for. Steven’s motivation is driven by his own love of family and the appreciation he has of being fortunate enough to have been married for 31 years with three wonderful children.

Steven has proudly been involved with Maccabi Tennis for the last 20 years and also served as President twice. Being 52 and having a stable home life he feels he has a lot to give back to the community and this is just one of the ways he feels he can make a difference. There is certainly a lot of nachas in seeing two people happy! Loneliness is often the aftermath of success … too much time spent on reaching those career goals not enough time on formulating relationships. Networking through the Jewish Community is a means of keeping us all connected and helps to formulate new friendships. This is a very big goal of j-junction.

  1. Dear Jenni,
    Your statement that j-junction won’t accept older singles is not strictly correct. While we don’t offer to match single women over 50 and single men over 55, we do still accept them as members and in 2010 are developing programs for them.
    From it’s inception in 2006 until the end of 2007 j-junction actively matched all age groups. However after two years it became apparent we didn’t have enough men in the 50+ age group joining to offer an acceptable level of service to women 50+.

    Come on all you single men join j-junction and make Jenni’s day!
