Combined Jewish Dating Site and Community Philanthropy Platform Launches

The team at Jewster are excited to announce the public launch of – a Jewish singles community of virtue. Jewster’s singles community provides a more affordable and superior user experience than established Jewish dating sites. At the same time, all members allocate a significant portion of their subscription fee to one of a select group of Jewish organizations and ventures.

The Jewster community will provide tremendous value to Jewish organizational partners in three ways:

  • Jewster’s ‘sticky philanthropy’ provides a constant stream of small donations as members allocate funds each and every month.
  • With member consent, Jewster will share key information with partners, providing Jewish organizations with a valuable list of new donors.
  • Jewster can promote Jewish organizational events to targeted demographics with unprecedented precision, ensuring more Jews participate in communal life.

Jewster’s founding partner organizations include leading innovators such as Uri L’Tzedek, PresenTense and Hazon. Furthermore, as Jewster develops, the platform will also provide a seed-funding source for new ventures seeking to launch.

Jewster’s virtuous ecosystem has the potential to bring Jewish singles together while simultaneously providing critical financial support for the programs that add value to the Jewish community.

Founded in 2003 and relaunched in 2011, Jewster is a growing New York-based tech startup founded by graduates of Schusterman Foundation development programs ROI  and Kivun.
