Meet a matchmaker

Tova Weinberg will do anything to make a match – even adopt a dog.

In an interview from her home in Pittsburgh, Weinberg, the matchmaker who co-founded the Jewish dating website (SYAS), recalls her confusion when a man whom she thought was in a relationship asked to come to her Hanukkah party for singles. Asked why he would attend a singles party, the man said he wanted to marry the woman he was dating, but he hated her dog. Weinberg called the woman to let her know that her boyfriend wanted to marry her – sans the dog. When the woman balked, Weinberg said, “I’ll take the dog.” Within a few months, Weinberg was a pet owner, and the couple was married.
