I’m sitting in a Manhattan apartment watching the sun set with 11 of New York’s most eligible Jewish singles.It’s Friday night and the table is a traditional Shabbat setting—a Kiddush cup filled with red wine, freshly-blessed candles and challah bread that’s been ripped apart and passed around the table.But after traveling Europe and researching the genocide, she felt it a strong pull toward preserving Jewish heritage and rituals. A 2013 PEW study revealed that the percentage of U. adults who say they are Jewish when asked about their religion has been cut by about half since the late 1950s.And more than half of Jewish Americans have married a non-Jewish spouse.“The larger a pool of potential dates you have, the more the paradox of choice causes people to freeze up,” says Ori Neidich, one of Davis’ Presen Tense mentors.“Erin has tapped into a need, you still have to meet people in person no matter what because that kind of chemistry can never be imitated by technology.” Old-school matchmaking is making inroads onto the scene for the crowd of those sick of swiping their phones to no end.The crowd is hushed as Erin Davis a 30-year-old, waif-like blond, our host for the night, announces it’s time for ice breakers, where we’ll read funny and ironic facts about each other and guess who it could be.Later I’ll leave after arranging a date with an adorable man handpicked by Davis whom my mother would kvell—ahem, gush—over.
Davis got access to mentors, donors and business classes to put her vision in place.“You don’t just have to do it for Shabbat, there can be Christian dinners, Muslim dinners,” Stanger says.“There are ways to do this for any type of common interest.” Davis has a long way to go before the company is truly ringing in a profit.One night it was Magic and Macarons, where a Jewish magician performed and macarons were served for dessert.Another called Shabbat in the Sky was held in a 52nd-floor penthouse in New York’s financial district.
(At the dinner I attended, fewer than half the group could read Hebrew.) There are small touches of Jewish customs like her logo, a heart-shaped Challah bread, and the business’ name, “Shabbatness.” Nes means miracle in Hebrew, Davis says.
