JDate, the largest and most successful Jewish singles community, and 92nd Street Y, the nonprofit community and cultural center in New York, today announced a strategic partnership aimed at furthering their shared mission of building and strengthening Jewish communities.
JDate, which is responsible for more Jewish marriages than all other dating sites combined, will be the exclusive dating partner for 92Y through March 2013. JDate members will have special access to the organization's most popular events, classes and Jewish Life programming, with offers including VIP access, priority tickets, specialty cocktails and other benefits.
"For more than 15 years, JDate has been dedicated to building and strengthening the Jewish community. That mission includes not only providing our members with an unparalleled experience online, but also giving them unique opportunities to connect with their local Jewish communities," said Greg Liberman, CEO of JDate's owner and operator, Spark Networks. "Our partnership with 92Y gives JDaters the unique opportunity to gather at an iconic organization that is a staple of New York Jewish Life."
For nearly 140 years, 92Y has been dedicated to enriching the lives of people from all walks of life, offering an extraordinary breadth and depth of community and cultural programming. In 2008, 92Y opened its downtown venue, 92YTribeca, to enrich the cultural landscape of downtown New York and serve the varied needs of the downtown community.
"92nd Street Y is committed to serving the broadest possible Jewish community through a huge variety of entry points, including Jewish Life programming and cultural programs in person and online that appeal to the needs of our contemporary Jewish population," said Sol Adler, Executive Director of 92nd Street Y. "This partnership with JDate provides a terrific opportunity for us to bring people together in the context of smart conversation and premier cultural experiences."
