There is a wealth of history and tradition in Jewish matchmaking. Nowadays, however, the traditional matchmaker’s role isn’t as prominent. However, there are still a lot of matchmakers and matchmaking agencies that focus solely on finding a match for Jewish singles—albeit using more modernized means.

If your own matchmaking business is having trouble finding a match for your Jewish clients, here are a couple of Jewish matchmaking agencies that you should definitely collaborate with:

Fass Pass to Love

Jessica Fass offers her matchmaking and date coaching services to interested Jewish singles. She started her Jewish matchmaking company, Fass Pass to Love—a play on Disneyland’s Fast Pass—in 2013 while she was living in Tel Aviv, Israel in order to help immigrants there find love.

Since then, she has helped numerous Jewish singles around the globe find their match! Her clientele is scattered throughout the globe. In fact, among her successful—and married!—clients are: an Israeli man to a Danish woman, an Astralia/Romanian man to an Israeli/American woman and even a man from Uruguay to an Israeli woman!

Jessica’s background in TV production has helped her hone listening and management skills that she uses today to help her in her matchmaking business.

A World of Jewish Singles

Sara Malamud established her Jewish matchmaking agency in 2000. Since then, the agency has grown into a large database of Jewish singles. Sara’s niche is more specific, however, focusing on Jewish singles in North America.

Though based in Jerusalem, she interviews clients by phone or using Skype. However, she does travel to New York regularly so she is also able to conduct in-person interviews. Her years of experience as a matchmaker has resulted in hundreds of matches and marriages for her clients.

She has been featured in a number of different media and publications, including the New York Times, BBC, and Haaretz.

Simantov International

Simantov International has a long and rich history—established in 1975 by Denise Kahn, the business initially started out in Strasbourg in the early 70’s before she expanded to Germany, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.

The business took to a different direction in 1985, after Jose Weber—who was previously matched by Denise—took over the company. It continued to grow, this time globally. Under his direction, Simantov managed to match thousands of Jewish singles.

Simantov has grown into a highly-respected, award-winning Matchmaking Agency with international clients. Its International team of Matchmakers and Dating Coaches are very experienced experts in their own fields.
