What is it?
A virtual week-long matchmaking game during Sukkot open to anyone who wants to meet new people and participate in fun challenges, designed to connect Jewish young adults between the ages of 21-39!
How do I play?
Sign up and we’ll match you with a potential partner with whom you will have one day to complete three challenges. It will take no more than one hour to complete all three challenges. Challenges are designed to be a fun way to connect with one another and Sukkot.

Both partners must opt to stay together in order for the match to remain.
