MIAMI, FL, March 29, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- While most Jewish women and men spend the days leading up to Passover scrubbing their floors, cleaning the dirt from their homes, and banishing their kitchens of every single crumb, Jewish singles are using this time of the year to clean out their social lives.
According to a poll conducted by Jewish dating site, Jewcier (http://www.jewcier.com
), Jewish singles will use Passover as an excuse to clean out their cell phone contacts and declutter their Facebook accounts. In a new poll of more than 1,120 Jewish singles, 68% of women, and 65% of men said that cleaning out their Facebook friends, and their cell phone contacts, was the most important thing to clean before Passover.
"Most of the attention given to Passover surrounds what foods we can and cannot eat, how to clean our homes, who to invite for the holidays, and where to spend the Seder. But we were curious how today's Jewish singles approached this holiday, and the results we discovered were very interesting," said Shira Kallus, Relationship Advisor for Jewcier. "What we found is that, when it comes to Passover priorities, Jewish singles have traded the traditional priorities with modern, non-traditional ones. Specifically, Jewish singles are more interested in ridding their Facebook from unwanted friends, and ex boyfriend's or girlfriends, rather than spending their time cleaning their homes from dirt and their kitchens from Chametz."
