“For many young people who are dating, the Israel question is a major issue that comes up,” reports Marc Rosenberg, Director of Pre-Aliyah Services at Nefesh B' Nefesh.

“We appreciate the fact that people are busy and don't have hours to search through profiles,” explains Saw You At Sinai COO Danielle Solomon.

“That's why we offer the human touch through dedicated matchmakers.

Meeting the right someone makes it easier for people to find their place in Israel.” As Ian candidly acknowledged: “My making Aliyah is strongly dependent on finding a woman who is also heading that way.” ‘See You In Israel’ members run the gamut from those who prefer someone headed towards Israel to those who will only date future Olim. I'm open to the idea of living in Israel and I prefer to meet someone who is also open to that, but it's not a make-or-break thing for me.” Sarah, who works in the non-profit sector, moved to Israel just over a year ago and has told the matchmakers of ‘See You In Israel’ that she is only interested in men who are certain they are going to make Aliyah.

“I'm not going to date someone who is not on that path,” she explains.

They'll invite you for dinner with the family on the second date.

For newcomers, dating locals can be something of an enigma.

The custom-engineered matching technology and professional experience they have, assisting Jews living in other niche communities such as Australia and the Far East, University of Pennsylvania’s Hillel Gradnetwork, Yeshiva University students and alumni, and many others, is now available to Aliyah-oriented singles around the globe.

“Most people tend to date others who live in their surrounding area,” notes Rosenberg.

Sitting, talking to your date, trying to connect, but every time the topic of living in Israel comes up they get a blank look on their face.

You hope to make Aliyah one day, and they like the idea of visiting Israel, once in a while. Determined to help singles avoid these types of aggravating situations, Nefesh B' Nefesh teamed up with the Jewish dating site Saw You At Sinai and launched ‘See You In Israel’, a new website exclusively for Aliyah-minded singles.
