Project Jewish Love launched an online personal profile directory on Aug. 1. During the month of August, new users can sign up for six free months by using the promo code MEET UPPJL81830. After that, the cost will be $18 to sign up for additional months.
When an individual decides to post a profile page, he or she will have control over what they want to write within their profile, said founder Jennifer Gale in a press release. PJL doesn’t require answering questions and users will have the option to show their real name and include their email address and phone number.
“The purpose of letting others know you’re single and available is to connect to them,” Gale said in the release. “Therefore, PJL feels it is critically important to create direct communications with real contact information.”
Project Jewish Love, for Jewish singles ages 40 and older, was founded by Gale this past May. Future events include a presentation by Rabbi Pinchas Allouche about identifying and recognizing beshert characteristics on Aug. 23; a Shabbat dinner on Aug. 26 at Congregation Beth Israel; and a meet and mingle on Aug. 28 at Maverick Coffee. A Thursday night Kabbalah yoga series runs through Sept. 22.
PJL will also offer a workshop series about dating with intention, which starts 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30, at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus, 12701 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale. The five-week series will be led by Lewis Denbaum, a dating expert and certified relationship coach. Denbaum and his wife, Diane, are the authors of “Madly in Love Forever: A Guide for True and Lasting Love.” The cost is $288.
