Did you notice there is a new Jewish dating site up?
I am always intrigued by proactive people. In this case, Justin took it upon himself to create a new dating site which offers its services completely for free.
Considering that a huge amount of work goes into creating and running a site like this, I was curious what pushed Justin to do this. I wrote to Justin and asked him if he was willing to answer a few questions for habitza. What is it that really pushed you to start Supertova? I had the site developed mainly to create an easy platform for Jews to communicate with each other, exclusively for dating. This is just one step. Most Jewish dating and matchmaking require membership fees. The main difference is that mine requires absolutely none. Once they realize they have a choice, they may elect to use mine.
My target audience is anyone who is single, Jewish, and not affiliated with messianics. Is there a team behind the scenes? Are you always working on improving the site? Are there new changes we can look forward to seeing in the near future? I have a small IT team consisting of a programmer and developer. The site is continually being developed with new features.
Most of the things you will see in the future is site simplicity developments. Im always looking to make it more simplified and user-friendly. What problem is SuperTova aiming to solve? The main problem in the Jewish community is just the simple fact that our numbers are small and dispersed. I had supertova created in order to bring them into one meeting place. If I succeed in my project, it will bring hundreds of thousands of Jews together for marriage. I am wondering if you can expand on what pushed you, personally, to go ahead and do this site.
They were available when i needed spiritual help. I was a child of an inter-faith household, no bar mitzvah, and no prior Jewish education. My big push is to ensure nobody has a similar lifestyle. I was raised celebrating x-mas and no longer take part. There are many variables that lead me to my quest; one of which is the aggravation, anti-Semitism, physical and spiritual torture our ancestors were forced to endure in the past. They kept their will and did what it took to ensure their children and grandchildren will keep Torah and live their lives as Jews.
I foresee inter-marriage as a threat to the foundation of Judaism. I feel very strongly about my Jewish heritage and I, not only want to see my grandchildren remain Jews, but also our Jewish brothers and sisters as well. We owe it to G-d; and we owe it to our ancestors.
I honestly feel that education and creative strategy could overcome this problem. Growing up in GA, i witnessed verbal anti-Semitism on a daily basis. Most did not know I was Jewish, as my last name is not Jewish. As a child, i would hear their thoughts about the Jews from adults and their children. It would make me incredibly angry to know that Jews were not liked, no matter what; and for no apparent reason. During WW2 study in middle school, i remember the children laughing during the holocaust documentaries, hailing to hitler during his appearance, and the teachers ignoring these acts of immaturity and hatred.
I have first hand knowledge of this.
I constantly had outbursts of rage to defend myself and my Jewish heritage. The Jewish experience that i received was when i spent time with my grandmother who comes from Austria. She spoke fluent Yiddish. I was very close with my grandfather and they represent the Jews very well.
Very well mannered with a passion for their Jewish identity. When I think of Jews, i think of them; and think of the struggle we undergo, in the past, present, and future. In my opinion, Judaism is way too important to put a price tag on the souls of our future youth. My commitment to the Jewish people is unbreakable. I hope your goals are met and your site is a success. I applaud both of you for being so proactive and involved in promoting Jews dating other Jews. It gladdens my heart to come across and interact with peers from my own tribe who work hard to keep our traditions going, and pour considerable amount of time and effort into sensitive and sometimes painful subject of dating.
Part of my Jewish past is defined by my great grandmother who maintained the traditions despite all the difficulties she encountered in her life time. To willingly walk away from the traditions that she tried to instill in us great grandchildren by choosing to intermarry would be to cancel out her efforts as if they meant absolutely nothing.
And sadly that is exactly what happens when young people intermarry. It is hard, and it gets especially pretty darn hard when one encounters many nice guys who would be a great match except that they are not Jewish. But then I think about how much effort non Jews have poured and continue to pour into divorcing Jews from Judaism, and I ask myself why should any of us make it easier for non-Jews to divorce Jews from Judaism by choosing a non-Jewish mate instead of a Jewish mate?
Well, I spent some time chatting person-to-person with Justin and he is a really cool guy. I am genuinely Jewish, with ALOT of Jewish ancestry mingled in with goyim, and because my parents are not and their parents were secretly practicing one on each side , I was told I would have to formally convert. Conservative — but should it matter? One thing I find completely offensive and makes me stop talking to guys on SuperTova is that they want to qualify me and will falsely state that I am not Jewish.
I thought we Jews were more sophisticated than the mainstream when it comes to our emotions.
You should not be yelled at or berated by anyone on the SuperTova site, that is just rude, and unfortunate that you should experience such a situation. You should send Justin an e-mail with the names of the SuperTova offenders, by the way. However, when it comes to our emotions, Jews are filled with emotions and opinions — 10 people in a room will invariably have 30 opinions. Good luck to you. I accept gratiously with thank you for considering me, and good luck to you in your search as well.
It saves me time, and quite a lot of mental energy. Why not try us today. Just sign up for a free account and you'll be browsing compatible Jewish singles immediately. Who knows, you may even meet your Beshert on the first try!
