New Partnership Between JDate and Ramah Aims to Connect Camp Alumni
The first-ever partnership between JDate and a Jewish camping movement has launched. A project of the Reshet Ramah alumni and community engagement initiative, RamahDate will offer former Ramah campers and staff members the opportunity to connect online with other Ramah alumni 18 years of age and older who share the passion for vibrant Jewish life that characterizes the Camp Ramah experience.
A well-established, industry leader, JDate is responsible for more Jewish marriages than all other online dating sites combined. Online dating has become increasingly prevalent in the last decade; Jews who married in 2011 were more than twice as likely to have used online dating than those married in 2003.
RamahDate members will subscribe to JDate through an exclusive link for Ramah alumni only and receive an identifying Ramah “badge” on their online profile. Ramahniks can choose to “meet” only other Ramahniks or search more broadly within JDate’s 750,000 members worldwide. Participation in RamahDate will support the Ramah Camping Movement, with a portion of the initial subscription purchase being directed to Ramah camper scholarships.
