About

Yente Over the Rainbow (YOtR) is a matchmaking service for LGBTQIA+ Jewish people, helping you find and connect with our diverse communities online. We recognize there is a vital need for Jewish LGBTQ+ people, looking for love, friendship, and community across the globe!

Whether you are new to our YOtR community, or coming back for the re-launch of the site, welcome! Please feel free to create (or update) your profile to let us know a little bit about you and what you are looking for in a match. Each Sunday and Wednesday, our algorithm will match you with users whom you can then message with online! Read more below to find out about how it works!

Our goal is to roll out new features,(including real life matchmakers!) over the next year. Subscribe to our newsletter below to hear about updates and exciting opportunities.

How It Works

  • Step 1

    Answer the questions about yourself and whom you're looking for

    We really value your privacy! The information that you fill out in the questionnaire is used by our algorithm to help find your match. Unless otherwise noted, this information will not be viewable by anyone except for our matchmakers (coming this year) and none of your information will be available to the public. Once you match with someone, they will be able to see your limited profile and the answers to questions clearly marked “visible to match.”

  • Step 2

    The algorithm will find you a match

    The specially programmed matching algorithm will send you a match on Sundays and Wednesday. At the moment, our algorithm cannot understand your paragraph answers or written responses. As we continue to grow, our matchmakers will be able to view your answers and help you find a perfect match.

  • Step 3

    View and message with your matches

    Once you are matched with someone, you will be able to view their limited profiles. Send them a message on the site and see what comes of it!

  • Step 4

    Tell us if your match worked out (or let us know if something went wrong)

    Was this a good match or not the right fit? Let us know and we'll use your feedback to make you a better match next time. If you need to report a profile (because it seems fake or messages were inappropriate) please email: report@yenteovertherainbow.com
