You’ve Come to the Right Place

More Personal than the dating websites.
More Resources than all your friends combined.
More methodical than your mother.
Better odds than the bar scene.

(And a track record to prove it all.)

As featured on

Most of our clients, like you, seek our services after they have exhausted the “traditional” means of meeting people – work, school, the bar scene, online and community dating services, and of course set-ups by family and friends. And like you, they are disillusioned and frustrated after investing countless hours and dollars with no real success to show for it.

What they’ve realized is this: Without the resources of a network like ours, the chances of meeting other Jewish singles who are actively seeking real, true, this-is-finally-it love and, ultimately, marriage, is exactly that-chance. And, like you, they’ve discovered these chance meetings are few and far between.

If you’re serious about finding your life partner, Chai Expectations can help you make it happen. Founded by professional matchmaker Laurie Berzack, MSW, Chai Expectations caters exclusively to the Jewish community, offering a methodical yet personalized approach to meeting other singles who are ready for marriage and Happily Ever After.


How it works

It’s really quite simple. You decide how committed you are; Laurie gets started. We offer two membership options, giving you the opportunity to jump in or simply test the waters.


Don’t take our word for it

Our clients around the country share Jewish values and the hope for lifelong love and happiness. By coming to us, they make an active commitment to their future, and they’re always glad they did. Click here to read more testimonials.
