MONSEY, N.Y., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The popular Jewish social networking site, Shabbat.com, recently hit over 40,000 active members who engage with fellow users for social events, dating, and job opportunities.
Founded by Rabbi Bentzion Klatzko in 2010, Shabbat.com is the largest social networking site for the Jewish community. With extensive features the site has a 3-pronged approach to its mission to connect Jewish people globally. Its easy to navigate search bar allows users to find Shabbat meals in their vicinity, and the social networking feature enables members to interact with fellow members by posting photos, links and making friends across the globe. Another popular feature that has proved a hit with users is the dating facet where users can browse social profiles of other singles and find potential dating prospects. There is even a unique feature that allows any member to match up any two prospects on the site.
Shabbat.com boasts members from a variety of locations around the world with users stretching from London, Australia, the United States and more countries globally. With its diversity of international members, users find no difficulty finding Shabbat meals in their local area. It has proved especially helpful for users travelling overseas for business or pleasure, or simply those looking for an inspirational Shabbat meal. The site has seen huge success, setting up people at over 350,000 Shabbat meals in 111 countries around the world since its launch. With 5 levels of security, members feel safe and confident to invite and be hosted.
Guests, and hosts alike, have expressed great appreciation for the site, saying it has livened their Shabbat experience as a whole.
"It was an incredible experience to meet such a lovely and diverse group of people at the Shabbat meal. It really was a taste of home rather than being stuck in a hotel in the middle of Europe, and I am so grateful to Shabbat.com that I had this option. I look forward to returning the favor and hosting Shabbat meals when I return home," said Miriam Groner, a member of Shabbat.com
Klatzko founded the site with the intent to bring the warm Shabbat experience to everyone. "In my position as a Rabbi I found that so many people weren't privy to the beautiful Shabbat experience and the energy and inspiration it provides for the rest of the week. With the launch of Shabbat.com, I hoped to bring that to many more people, and it has been incredible to see our member base grow from a small group in the tri-state area, to a vast network of people in over 4000 cities around the world," said Rabbi Klatzko, founder of Shabbat.com.
The dating feature has also proved popular with many users logging in to find singles with similar interests.
The site is free and welcomes users of all Jewish denominations. Find out more information and register at http://www.Shabbat.com/. Shabbat.com also has a Facebook presence at http://www.facebook.com/seeyouonshabbos and on Twitter at http://twitter.com/seeyouonshabbos.
