This self sustaining website will mainly do the matchmaker's job, by using a series of highly developed questionnaire sets, which will then create a very meticulous database that will provide the most adequate match based on similarity and mutual interests, belief system and preferences (cultural, social, political, etc.) It will be a NON-PROFIT site, developed by myself with the help of professionals I trust and are willing to help. The site will have other functionalities than romantic - it will help connecting people, there will be a genealogy section, a social networking section, an employment and job section, a community…
Healthy marriages represent the core of our ability to keep the fundamental aims of Jewish continuity alive. However, a three-pronged crisis is threatening the roots of this sacred Institution: - Many are choosing not to get married. - Of those who do get married, many struggle to maintain and sustain long lasting healthy relationships. - Many are choosing to marry out.
The next big Jewish Idea is: Jewish Ideas!
For all who have wanted to ask, but were afraid there was no answer, here is your opportunity!
What is so precious about Judaism that it must continue?
What does Judaism have to tell the world? What does it have to tell me? What does it have to say to the adult, critical mind?
The responses: Here is the opportunity to encounter the real thing: serious, thoughtful but exciting reflections from a variety of outstanding thinkers on the tough questions; answers for the adult mind that…
Why should others help us if we ourselves do not help each other?
Therefore my big idea is to create the Jewish volunteer organization "SURVIVAL".
It is never too much help. I believe that one more properly functioning organization providing help to Jewish people could make a difference.
The idea came to my mind when I learned about the tragedy in Arizona, Tucson. Not only some victims, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, were Jewish, but it may be that even a shooter Jared Lee Loughner was a Jew (I did not find any information about his ethnicity, religion, or family…

Cashformycause.com is the Next Big Jewish Idea to engage our community in fundraising efforts simply by living their daily lives. Ten years ago, Upromise.com launched their site as a method by which members could earn cash back from gasoline, grocery, restaurant and online retailers to help fund their children's college education expenses. Since that time, they have amassed 10 million members earning cash back rewards from thousands of retailers resulting in over $600 million credited to their accounts. Cashformycause.com takes that same proven model and converts it to a philanthropic objective.
The roadmap for retailers and business model has already…
Keep the Jewish traditions alive through a series of Jewish-themed cooking classes available all over the city. People don't want to attend events just to mix and mingle, they'd rather learn something very useful, like the art of cooking. With a team of chefs and marketers, my organization could get the community excited about Jewish/Mediterranean themed cooking classes.
A food kitchen & training school--Serving hot meals to Jewish people in the community who are unemployed, perhaps homeless as a result. All food is to be prepared and served by trainees, themselves out-of-work, interning at the kitchen, learning skills taught by volunteer Jewish chefs/restauranteurs in the L.A. area. Trainees learn food prep skills from the ground up, and are also trained in public health compliance, etc.
Everybody eats. Dinner goes best with conversation. I was part of a very successful campaign in the SF Bay Area based around having dinner and learning about a culture. It works. The idea is really this--have dinner, learn about the Jewish faith and culture. The program would be funded by donations, and would include a specific ciriculum, supported by a direct marketing campaign.
