SawYouInTheRabbisOffice

Another week, another three articles on the Jewish singles “crisis.”
This time the culprit is the NY Jewish Week, which in a package deal, addresses the high number of Israeli singles; ‘spiritual’ events for singles; and the new, badly-designed dating site, SawYouAtSinai.com, which has snagged a series of rabbinic endorsements.
Which begs the question – why would a site which is nothing more than a convenient vehicle to get in touch with matchmakers need them? Isn’t this just another example of the Orthodox community’s increasing dread of being labeled non-conformist, in every activity, big and small, whether there are halachic implications or not?
I (and others) continue to be puzzled by this overwhelming fear of 'independence' -- or rather, of being seen as ‘independent.’ How is the Orthodox community going to ever break out of this?
