92nd Street Y’s Annual Street Fest brought its programs out onto Lexington Avenue last weekend for all of New York to enjoy — which gave JDaters the perfect opportunity to connect face-to-face! One of the Upper East Side’s most beloved institutions, 92Y is a world-class cultural and community center where people all over the world connect through culture, arts, entertainment and conversation. As a sponsor of the festival, JDate was thrilled to find another avenue to help JDaters connect with Jewish life in NYC, and to find new ways of bringing the Jewish community’s rich traditions into dialogue with the modern world.

Thousands packed Lexington Avenue to enjoy live music, games, raffles and more.

Live performances on the festival’s main stage included acts from A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Chicago, and Fiddler on the Roof. JDate’s own John Volturo introduced Fiddler on the Roof, which was a major hit (previews begin November 20th).

JDate’s prize wheel was also a hit. Lucky winners walked away with JDater t-shirts, sunglasses, Soul Cycle gift cards, and FREE JDate subscriptions.

JDate representatives Dave and Maya handed out fun giveaways and answered questions about Jewish dating in NYC.

Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers, especially Dave (pictured above on the left) who was incredibly helpful and sweet. Oh, and he’s on JDate, ladies! Look him up under his username, ‘AdorableDave!’
