How does speed dating work
During registration you will get a badge with your first name on, plus a scorecard and pencil to keep track of who you meet.The badge number correlates to the tables and is also used after the event for matching.The original Speed Dating service is still intended to help those of the Jewish faith find a shidduch.However, others have extended their scope to include people of all religions, shapes, sizes, interests and sexual orientations.We ask guests to always book in advance via our secure website so we can get a gender split which is as equal as possible.The first half an hour of every event is for registration – you will sign in with our friendly host and have time to get a drink before the speed dating starts.

Speed dating originated in 1998, and was set up by an American rabbi, as a way for young, single Jewish people to meet one another.
