I just don’t know what to make of the skepticism a guy who used to work for J Date shows about wanting to meet other Jews. I have friends, an interfaith het couple, who got married a few years ago, and it was important to them to find a rabbi who would perform same-sex commitment ceremonies. Besides, if you have pets, you want to make sure you find someone who doesn’t hate them on principle.
