London can be a daunting place when you’re looking for love, but there are large Jewish communities in Golder’s Green, Hampstead, Stamford Hill, Gants Hill, Hendon and Swiss Cottage which are great places to start.
A large proportion of the UK’s Jewish community live in and around London, so you’ll find plenty of networking events for young professionals as well as other opportunities to meet potential partners, such as those listed below.
Brick Lane Market
Brick Lane Market does have a Jewish influence as well as many others from across the world. The heady scent of freshly cooked bagels often fills the air and exploring the market and all it has to offer is a fine way to spend an afternoon in the capital.
If you don’t end up chatting to anyone who catches your eye, perhaps you’ll fall in love with something on the many eclectic market stalls instead.
Bevismarks The Restaurant
This establishment is considered by many to be the finest kosher restaurant in London. It’s an exclusive venue in E1 and makes for the perfect venue when you’re taking someone out that you’re looking to impress.
From chicken soup with matzo balls, to salt beef and breaded chicken schnitzel, your taste buds are in for a real treat.
Jewish Museum London
While the museum itself makes for a fascinating visit, it’s the organised events where you’re more likely to meet someone with similar tastes and interests.
Events such as walking tours, illustration workshops and the ever-popular books at lunchtime bring Jewish people of all ages and from all over London together regularly.
The Jewish Community Centre London in Finchley regularly shows the best in Jewish film from the UK and overseas.
After watching a great movie, you can pop down to the bar at Zest and have a chat with others about the feature or just get to know some of the regular cinema-goers.
