“…took its full-house audience on a rich, entertaining ride while providing insights into the wisdom of maintaining a sense of Jewish identity and continuity in a world that encourages assimilation.” — Phillip Wuntsch, Film Critic, The Dallas Morning News

“I wish all my single Jewish girlfriends had come with me to see Make Me A Match…The documentary…offers a very entertaining and upbeat look at the search for a Jewish mate — in other words it’s the perfect antidote to our reality.” — Susan Mandel, Washington Jewish Week

“… a film that provokes thought about fun and romance …” — Stefanie Shulman, Director of Performance and Visual Arts, Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center (East Hills, NY)

“We all had a good time, it was the perfect entertainment for our Sisterhood…” — Joan M. Applebaum, Adath Israel Sisterhood, Lawrenceville, NJ

“For all its humor, Make Me A Match has some loftier objectives: to educate non-Jews about Jewish culture, to provoke discussions about what Jewish communities can do to ease the process of finding a mate, and, more roundaboutly, to broach the touchy subject of intermarriage…it succeeds as an entertaining, interesting slice of Jewish life.” — Liz Stevens, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“Though told with a lot of humor, the story behind Make Me A Match is one of a culture trying to fight the ‘silent Holocaust’ of assimilation by helping Jewish singles find each other.” — Terri Jo Ryan, Dallas Jewish Week
