CELEBRATE WITH OTHER JEWISH SINGLES

SPECIAL FOR THE AJT 

We all know about the traditional Valentine’s Day, with boxes of chocolate and chubby Cupids everywhere. But, did you know that Judaism has its own version of the holiday? It’s called Tu B’Av and it’s coming up in the month of August.

If you’re young, single, and Jewish, come celebrate this day — which, historically, was when unmarried, young Jewish people headed out to find their matches — with other like-minded people at a free party at Kaleidoscope Bistro and Pub, located at 1410 Dresden Drive Suite 100 on Monday, August 11th from 6-9 p.m. Singles in their 20s and 30s can mix and mingle, while enjoying light appetizers and a cash bar. It’s the perfect opportunity to get to know other Jewish people in your area, and possibly meet your match.

And if you don’t find that special person at the party, don’t worry. Professional matchmaker Laurie Berzack and the team at Chai Expectations have you covered. In the two weeks following the party at Kaleidoscope, the professionals at Chai Expectations encourage all young, Jewish singles, who are looking to get married, to head to ChaiExpectations.com and fill out a profile, free of charge. If you already have a profile, update it with new pictures or information.

To help these new users find a match, Laurie and her team will run a search in Georgia and the Carolinas. If they discover a match, they’ll do a phone number exchange for the two individuals. Laurie has eight years of experience as a professional matchmaker. Three out of four people who hire her find success, either through direct matchmaking or through coaching. Thus, her services are ideal for those who are ready to take a proactive approach to finding love.

If you are interested in other Tu B’Av-related events in the region, the Chai Expectations team is also throwing a party in Charlotte on Sunday, August 10th at 5Church, located at 127 N. Tryon St. #8, from 6-9 p.m.

The goal is to build meaningful marriages between Jewish people in this community, especially during the romance-focused holiday of Tu B’Av. All young, Jewish singles are invited to attend both parties, and to fill out a profile on the Chai Expectations site.
