Members have lengthy profiles and can contact anyone they are interested in.
On JSwipe, the profiles contain very little information other than a series of photographs, a scroll-down menu for preferred Jewish identity (Just Jewish, Orthodox, Traditional, Conservative, Reform, Willing to Convert, and Other), a box to check if you keep kosher, and the option to pull information from your Facebook profile.
The Facebook page has 428 members, and the newsfeed is regularly populated with information about other Jewish social events in the city.
