Find something cute to wear. Pick a place to go. Make sure your teeth are clean and you smell wonderful. Get a haircut. When you think about it, there’s an awful lot that can go into making a good impression on a first date. So why waste all that effort on just one person? If you’re Jewish by any definition, or just enjoy Jewish culture, you’re in luck.
On Saturday, Jan. 31, the D.C. Jewish Community Center’s Kurlander Program for Gay & Lesbian Outreach and Engagement (GLOE) is offering ’’You Had Me at Shalom: An Evening of Same Sex Jewish Speed Dating.’’ Justin Lerner, program director for GLOE, says the idea is an import from a Boston GLBT Jewish group, Keshet, that’s been doing this for years.
