Urban Kvetch: JDate

The Internet ad reads: “760,424 blue-eyed women at JDate.com and counting,” and another tallies green-eyed men. Is JDate encouraging us to JHate? Of course lots of Jews are light as can be. But with the stigma on the dark-complexioned putting us at odds with our swarthy Semitic selves, JDate ads offer a disturbing and all-too-familiar escape. Here you can find someone who’s Jewish, but not, you know, too Jewish, not Jewish like that.

What do you think?
