Jspace.com - launched in November as a Facebook-style platform where individuals can sign up for profiles, in addition to hosting pages for Jewish organizations, event calendars for Jewish communities, Jewish-related news stories and more - rolled out a free dating section Dec. 24 at a launch party in New York.

In addition to components usually found on other Jewish dating websites - such as email messaging, instant messaging, highlighting featured matches, and allowing users to send a virtual "romance" to other users to express interest - the Jspace dating section (jspace.com/dating) allows users to both browse profiles as well as "make a shidduch" (match) for others on the site. By contrast, some other Jewish dating sites have single modalities - JDate and Frumster allow users to browse profiles, while SawYouAtSinai has no profile browsing, but instead employs online matchmakers who serve as intermediaries between users (Frumster and SawYouAtSinai are more popular for Orthodox daters).
