The Jewish dating website, JWed, announced this week that it is raffling off a free trip to Israel to any couple who met through JWed or its predecessor site, Frumster.
The contest, which opened July 23, is asking engaged or married couples to submit their stories and pictures for a chance to win two free economy class tickets to Israel valued at up to $2,000.
“We are excited to bring the JWed family together to celebrate this milestone,” said CEO Ben Rabizadeh, who explained that the contest is in celebration of JWeds 3,300th marriage. “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 an online dating service for authentically Jewish singles seeking meaningful, committed relationships, which work to foster deep connections that lead to marriages, the company explained in a release. 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 profiles so that each member sees only relevant suggestions. Members can then choose whom to contact and do so directly through the website.
JWed was first founded in 2001 as an Orthodox-only dating site, but expanded in 2012 to offer services to the larger Jewish community.
Full details of the competition can be found on the JWed website.
