Yenta Net’s founder, Raysh Weiss, has been acting as an informal Jewish matchmaker for years.She noticed a real need for the service when she moved to New York in 2012: “I realized I would need the help of others to take on this project,” she told Fusion in an email. Unlike dating apps, Yenta Net doesn’t ask potential daters to write online profiles.This method of “slow dating,” is described by Weiss as “very counter cultural.” “It very much goes against the current NYC dating standard of seeing multiple people at once and rifling through online profiles based on one ‘wrong’ word or image we see,” she said.

Yenta Net matchmaker and Weiss’ husband, Jonah Rank, sparked some debate on his Facebook page when he described Yenta Net’s slow dating philosophy.

Because they started off dating long-distance (Ryan was living in Colorado at the time), it was understood that they would not be exclusive: They initiated a policy Leah describes as “don’t ask, don’t tell.” But when Ryan moved to New York and began living with Leah a year and a half later, he assumed they would transition immediately into monogamy.… continue reading »
