Every two weeks TC Jewfolk features the best Jewish dating stories from our readers anonymously in the blog’s Jew-Date Diaries column. We want your stories.
Maybe you were set up by your well-intentioned bubbe. Maybe you jumped into the world of internet dating. Maybe you locked eyes at your local Starbucks and exchanged phone numbers. No matter how it happened, you ended up on a date and have a story to tell.
Every Sunday our resident Jewish advice columnist Ask Shuli weighs in on the Jewish questions you can’t ask Bubbe. We want your questions. If you’ve ever wondered how the hell to explain Simchat Torah to your non-Jewish boss, ask Shuli. Or, is pre-marital sex good for the Jews? Or, how to introduce your Lutheran boyfriend to the family? Ask Shuli.
Send your Jewish dating sob, horror, and success stories to [email protected]. Keep in mind a few things when submitting:
- Stories should be between 250-600 words
- Names and identifying details should be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty. [There’s one caveat here: If your story has a happy ending, we’d be tickled to share real names and a photo with your permission]
- Please keep things PG-13
- TC Jewfolk reserves the right to edit as necessary for space and content
Email your questions for Shuli about life, love, work, family and just about anything else to [email protected]. Don’t worry – all Ask Shuli questions featured on the blog are done so anonymously.
Thanks – in advance – for adding your voice to TC Jewfolk’s online community. We look forward to hearing from you.

So, Emily won’t have to keep making them up?
Avner – I’m flattered that you credit me with such creativity. I do indeed manage the Jew-Date Diaries postings, but the stories have come in through the mailbox ([email protected]) and we’re always looking for more if you’d like to submit one of your own! As to “Ask Shuli” – I’ll go as far as to say that neither Leora or I ask or answer the questions posed. I’m sure Ask Shuli would love to hear from you with the nagging questions you need advice on!
