From Fiddler on the Roof’s Yente to Netflix’s Aleeza Ben Shalom,
the Jewish matchmaker is a key component of the greater community. Now — just months after Aleeza’s hit show first aired— join UJA, The New York Jewish Week, and Central Synagogue, as Aleeza discusses modern matchmaking with The Nosher’s Shannon Sarna and offers tried-and-true tips and tricks to find Your Person. 

After Aleeza’s talk, she’ll invite four singles representing our diverse Jewish community onstage for an honest conversation, lending an interactive component to this event. You’ll also discover how UJA, The New York Jewish Week, and Central Synagogue are each strengthening Jewish life.
