the virtual edition!

An Easy, Casual Alternative to Dating Apps

Looking to date in Philly’s Jewish community? Meet up with our in-house Jewish matchmaker for a virtual chat! She’ll learn about you and the kind of person you’re looking for to start keeping an eye out for you — and hopefully set you up with someone great! She will also recommend organizations and events (virtual at the moment!) where you’re most likely to meet someone who fits. If you enjoy the experience, we hope you’ll consider making a $36 donation to Tribe 12 to help many more people get set up in the future.

Danielle is a mediator trained in both the Harvard Negotiation Model of facilitative mediation and the Nonviolent Communication (NVC) method and is a member of the PA Council of Mediators. She received her Masters in Jewish Studies from Gratz College where she completed a thesis on trends in secular Jewish dating.

I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that I would meet my future wife because we were both involved in a Jewish organization, but sure enough, we did meet – and like many people we are eternally grateful for the chance that we got.
