This three-year gap, which is much smaller for men, is statistically significant, she says, and reflects women's initial desire to marry a Jew.

The intermarriage comes about, she and other sociologists explain, after a woman gives up on finding a Jewish husband and decides to marry a gentile rather than stay single.

Meet Daniel: he's 31 years old, grew up in a Conservative home and now considers himself "Reconstructionist, if I have to affiliate myself at all." Living in a small college town, highly educated and extremely social, Daniel (who declined to provide his last name) dates almost constantly, but says that only about 15 to 20 percent of the women he dates are Jewish.

A woman's Jewishness "is not that important," he says.

What is commonly referred to as the Jewish "singles crisis," and in Orthodox communities as the "shidduch crisis," appears to affect women more drastically than men, both practically and emotionally.

Both statistical and anecdotal evidence provided by sociologists, matchmakers, lay leaders and singles themselves paints a picture of a dating scene in which many more women than men attend Jewish singles events; more women actively use Jewish dating sites; matchmakers are flooded with applications from women; and single Jewish women in their late 20's and 30's are panicking. As difficult as the "dating scene" can be for many men, it is often more challenging for the fairer sex, especially in the Jewish community.

"My friends and I talk about it all the time," she says. You have fantastic women who are beautiful, intelligent, warm, great to be around, who have senses of humor and want to be wives and mothers, to be part of a couple - and we are not able to do that because the men are not in the same place." Jacqueline and Daniel are both indicative of a phenomenon well-known among Jewish communal leaders and dating experts.According to studies cited in Fishman's monograph, American Jewish girls are more likely than boys to receive a Jewish education, especially after their bar or bat mitzvah.They are also more likely to join Jewish youth groups, participate in college Hillel activities, take Jewish studies classes, describe themselves as affiliated with a wing of Judaism, attend weekly worship services, partake in adult Jewish education, visit Israel, attend secular Jewish events and engage in volunteer Jewish leadership.They were then asked to describe the "ideal Jewish woman." The last three groups - male and female gentiles, as well as Jewish women - overwhelmingly described Jewish women in neutral or positive terms such as "smart," "able to talk about anything," "beautiful," "voluptuous" and "well-read." In describing the ideal Jewish woman, they used the same terms.The responses of Jewish men were markedly different."I feel there is a much bigger division between those who are observant of any religion [and] those who are non-observant than there is between religions." He would therefore rather that his children be "unobservant Christians" than very religious Jews.
