Special to The Jewish News

A

single Jew traveling
abroad on business,
armed with a com-
puterized list of unattached
Jews at his destination,
complete with details of so-
cial events and invitations
for Shabbat meals, is not just
a remote picture of an
idealized future.
When Dr. Motti Fried-
man's "Tandu" World Jew-
ish Singles Club establishes
its planned computer net-
work, that picture will
become a reality.
Tandu ("together" in Heb-
rew), founded by Friedman
three years ago, already has
a mailing list of several
thousand names of single
Jews all over the world, in-
cluding those from the major
communities in the United
States and Europe as well as
tiny ones such as Cyprus and
Puerto Rico.
Friedman, 44, an Israeli
who received his doctorate in
organizational behavior at
Columbia University and
who is himself single, is
acutely aware of the plight
of Jewish singles — espe-
cially those with successful
careers which involve
mobility — who want an ac-
tive social life while remain-
ing Jewish.
Most local communities,
he maintains, cater mainly
for couples, and Tandu,
which is a non-profit organ-
ization, aims to fill that vac-
uum.
Tandu will soon be bring-
in g out a bimonthly
newsletter to strengthen the
contacts between its mem-
bers, informing them of spe-
cial activities for Jewish
singles worldwide.
But Friedman's main
efforts are now directed to
organizing the first Jewish
Singles Conference, planned
for this summer in
Jerusalem. He hopes it will
bring some 500 people from
abroad to join a similar
number of Israelis.
He plans to conduct
workshops on the problems
of being a single Jew, discus-
sions on Jewish demography
and the dangers of assimila-
tion, and the effects of late
marriages and small
families.
Friedman intends to keep

David Landau is a reporter for
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency.

fordable, and he hopes to
sponsor delegates from
Eastern Europe, where, he
says, the effect of the Jewish
singles problem has already
eroded the Jewish commun-
ity. Friedman, who recently
traveled to the Soviet Union,
met with singles there who
are anxious to strengthen
their Jewish identity and
make contact with Jews in
the West.
Friedman also hopes that
the conference will give Jew-
ish singles an opportunity to
see Israel as a possible home.
He has made plans for home
hospitality, to be organized
by the Israel Forum, an
organization which pro-
motes successful absorption
of immigrants by "adopting"
olim and guiding them
through bureaucracy and
the difficulties of their first
months in Israel.
Friedman is on the board
of the 500-member Forum
and is himself in close con-
tact with a Yugoslav immi-
grant family.
Meanwhile, Friedman is
lobbying for the rights of
singles inside Israel. He is
trying to extend the time
limit for immigrant rights
for single olim, and he is also
active in changing pension
conditions for war widows,
which at present discourage
remarriage.
But for Friedman, and
Tandu, Jewish survival is
the first priority. Jewish
singles are lonely people, he
says, and there is a real need
for contact. Eventually,
Tandu hopes to raise the
awareness of Jewish organ-
izations all over the world to
the needs of singles, and to
supply them with educa-
tional programs and unique
activities to bring Jewish
singles together. ❑
