“So my mom said: ‘What about the miracle of Shabbat?

Davis got access to mentors, donors and business classes to put her vision in place.

“I felt there was a void in the Jewish community of Shabbat dinners in intimate homes,” she says.

“ And I realized it was an ideal environment for singles to meet each other.” She interviews singles and promises those selected for the dinner a potential partner, a night of unlimited alcohol and a meal, at her apartment or one of the guests’ who chooses to host, all for just $36—a division of 18, or chai in Hebrew, a lucky number in Judasim—The idea became a business when Davis applied and received a fellowship through Presen Tense, a social entrepreneurial program with a focus on the Jewish community.

He explains it as a more wholesome experience than dating at a bar. One dinner was called Bourbon and Beatbox, where contestant and special guest Jay Stone beatboxed the Shema, a prayer from the Torah.

One night it was Magic and Macarons, where a Jewish magician performed and macarons were served for dessert.

This is “Shabatness,” an invite-only service that sets up young Jewish professionals over Shabbat dinners.

And more than half of Jewish Americans have married a non-Jewish spouse.

“The studies disturb me, and there are small things to do to keep the tradition alive but make it our own,” she says.

Davis is quite rare, a matchmaker who does things the artisanal way, setting up singles through dinner parties, not apps or algorithms.
