(July 23, 2019 / JNS) JWed will celebrate its 3,300th marriage by offering one Jewish couple two free tickets to Israel.
The online dating website will host a contest from July 23 to Aug. 16, asking engaged or married couples who met through the online dating site (or when the site was formerly called Frumster) to submit their stories and pictures for a chance to win two free tickets to Israel.
“We are excited to bring the JWed family together to celebrate this milestone,” said CEO Ben Rabizadeh. “At a time of exciting growth for our company, we think it is appropriate to celebrate those who found their chosen one through our platform, which has been a pioneer in online dating for more than a decade.”
JWed is geared for authentically Jewish singles seeking meaningful, committed relationships leading to marriage.
The site uses proprietary two-way filters to provide custom profiles that enable Jewish singles to find matches who share their core values and religious affiliation. A firewall screens information so that each member sees only relevant suggestions.
Members can then choose whom to contact and do so directly through the website.
JWed started in 2001 as Frumster, geared to Orthodox couples, but was renamed in 2012 when it expanded to the broader Jewish community.
Staff will select the best stories to be entered in a raffle for two round-trip, economy class plane tickets to Israel of up to $2,000 value.
The contest is open to any engaged or married couple that met through JWed at any time.
