David Yarus has been one of the single most impactful, young Jewish leaders impacting the millennial Jewish experience and the broader Jewish community in recent years. David is best known for founding JSwipe, which has grown to over 1-million users worldwide, resulting in thousands of millennial *Jewish* marriages among what is known to be the least-engaged, Jewish generation in recent history, with an interfaith marriage rate of over 70%.
Yarus turned JSwipe into a household brand, making Jewish dating for millennials fun, easy, and accessible, and, more importantly, socially acceptable rather than stigmatized by the less-affiliated who are the most likely to marry outside of the faith. Statistically, 47% of JSwipe users are less-affiliated millennials who identify as “Just Jewish.”
Outside of his work with JSwipe, Yarus is the founder of mllnnl, a Jewish community focused social media and creative agency. David’s personal and professional social networks reach most Jewish communities around the world. He serves as a spokesperson for the millennial Jewish generation to the media and has dedicated his life to Jewish impact.
Most recently, David has evolved his role as JSwipe Founder to now oversee the JDate brand, community, and partnerships worldwide, for the world’s largest and longest-running Jewish Dating site.
