Comedic actress Michelle Slonim may like to joke around, but she is taking Valentine’s Day very seriously. So much so that she has planned a Date My Jewish Friend Extravaganza for the entire month of February. Known for the young Jewish singles events she has been organizing about once a month for the past year and a half, she has decided to take this social scene to a whole other level.
For Slonim, 31, who staged her original party as a way to support her “Michelle’s Jewish Date Party” interactive comedy show, told The Shmooze that she is motivated to bring young Jews together while supporting the arts and partnering with local businesses and organizations. “I like building community,” the New York native said. “I do it through comedy, through talking to people.”
