Religious Tinder? New Jewish dating group sparks criticism
- A religious dating WhatsApp group named “Until We Meet” has sparked controversy by allowing members to upload profile photos, including full-body images, without accompanying text.
- This shift in policy has led to heated debates among the group’s 500 members, all of whom identify as religious. The group’s goal is to connect like-minded religious singles for potential relationships.
- The group manager explained that the change in policy was based on a majority preference for focusing on photos rather than detailed self-descriptions.
- This decision has drawn criticism from some members, including Eleanor Rahimi, who expressed discontent on Facebook.
- Despite the controversy, Rahimi remains hopeful that the discussions will lead to positive changes in the group’s approach.
- An organization aiding National-Religious singles, Baim Betov, criticized the prioritization of physical attributes over individuals’ true essence, emphasizing the importance of aligning with core values in dating initiatives.
