I'M JEWISH
AND I'M SINGLE

Where Do I Go To Meet
Other Jewish Singles?

"I'm tired of the bars. You can't be sure the people you
meet are Jewish and you can't even be sure they're
single. At work everyone is married. Besides, I don't like
to date people from the office — it leads to complica-
tions. I've already met all the available singles in my so-
cial circle. What now?"

This is the refrain heard
over and over by Millie
and Claire — founders of
LO-LA, the dating pro-
gram for Jewish singles. It
is heard all over the coun-
try where similar programs
are mushrooming in the
Jewish community. Ironi-
cally, as the number of
Jewish singles grows to
unbelievable proportions,
the difficulty in making
connections seems to get
greater.

Singles used to meet
their partners in high
school or college, in the
synagogue or other Jewish
institutions in a Jewish
community which was
tight-knit and close. Now
our horizons have
expnded, our diverse pro-
fessions have made us
mobile, our community is
dispersed and
heterogeneous. We need
new solutions for new
problems. And the Jewish
doting service has come
into its own. A growing
number of singles find it
expedient and useful to
turn to specialists to help
them meet others, to give
fate a nudge as it were,
instead of sitting back and
waiting.

In our own community
two women have under-
taken to start a dating
program some two years
ago. They called it LO-LA,
in Hebrew, for him - for
her. Millie Rosenbaum
and Claire Arm were de-
eply concerned about the
rate of intermarriage, and
attributed it to some ex-
tent to the fact that eligi-
ble Jewish singles just did
not meet other congenial
singles during the course
of their normal social con-
tacts. And so LO-LA was
born. For a very modest
fee, one of the lowest of
any such service in the
country, a single can be-
come a member for a
year. This membership is
preceded by a no obliga-
tion interview, at which
time there takes place a
discussion
about the
background,
interests,
preferences of the candi-
date.

During the course of the
one year membership,
names are submitted to
the members by mail.
These names are selected
on the basis of the inter-
view, and the memory,
impressions and intuition
of Millie and Claire.

Association

These programs take all
sorts of formats and pro-
cedures. Some are purely
mechanical, relying on
new technology, the
computer to accept input
and spew forth output in
the form of acceptable
names. But the most suc-
cessful are those in which
personal attention, caring
sympathetic listeners, dig-
nity and confidenriallity
are the bywords. Many of
the people attracted to
these services are the
YUPPIES, successful, attrac-
tive, educated people
who have limited time for
social life and would like
to use the service as a
screening procedure
There is every desire,
however, to cater to
people of all backgrounds
and all ages

.

.

In two years time, close
to one thousand people
have been interviewed.
Hundreds have joined.
LO-LA is very proud of
nine marriages resulting
from their introductions, al-
though it considers itself
not a matrimonial service
but a dating program.
LO-LA is proud of com-
ments it receives — "I did
not fall in love but I met
lots of lovely people" —
made some good friends
— "Your service is so
badly needed" — "You
are doing God's work "

LO-LA invites all eligible
people who ore in-
terested in joining us to
call or write
