When the NY Times revealed that JDate is a an online-dating-destination for non-Jews in the Style section, Gothamist doubts that many people were surprised, thought it was nice as confirmation of our suspicions. For ages, people have been attracted to people of other races or religions, while some people marry within their race or religion. IT JUST DEPENDS. We really don't have that much to say on the matter, except that we love what the Jews have brought to our breakfast culture (bagels, lox, shmears - it's all good!) and these two phrases: "Donna Changstein" and "shiksappeal."

JDate, where the non-Jews try to use the Yiddish they pick up from the Coffee Talk with Linda Richman skit or Seinfeld. And for those dating a Jew, the book, What to Do When You Date a Jew.
