Get Matched

Soul Search is a discreet & professional introduction service based on the age-old practice of matchmaking using modern technology and resources. It’s confidential, personalized and unique.



Why Hire a Matchmaker?By Susan Trombetti

How do you know it is time to hire a matchmaker? Use a matchmaker if and when:

  • The people you are meeting aren’t the quality you would like to meet.
  • You are a busy professional and don’t have the time to find someone because your job is demanding.
  • You don’t have the time to spend researching dating sites and making it through all of the steps to reveal your match.
  • You don’t want to blindly put yourself out there. You require discretion and confidentiality.
  • You constantly select the same “type” and need to break out of the habit and try new strategies.
  • You are tired of meeting someone different from their online dating site portrayal. You need an objective party to guide you through the dating process.
  • Everything else you do in life is well thought out except this area, try a matchmaker who w ill give you the attention to detail your life deserves.
  • Couldn’t tolerate another blind date that could be a comedy movie if it weren’t your life.
  • You settle for nothing short of excellence in other areas of your life and want to apply that same approach to dating and romance.

Get Educated

Through our educational series, we offer the knowledge and tools needed to “Date Intelligently,” in a relaxed and social environment. Sip on a cocktail while being inspired!

The Relationship Series

A series of weekly classes featuring various guest speakers who provide insight on how to build and maintain happier, healthier relationships. Hosted at a trendy bar in Beverly Hills, over 100 men and women attend for the inspirational content, and stay for the music, cocktails, appetizers, and good company!

 Designed to: 

  • Encourage personal growth & development
  • Facilitate meaningful connections with other like-minded Jewish singles in a warm and welcoming environment


  • Identify your strengths and what you have to offer
  • Discuss and define gender roles to better facilitate the dating process
  • Decide what is most important to you in a long-term partner
  • Understand how to successfully navigate the mixed messages we are receiving between society, family involvement and our desires
  • Dating basics

He Said, She Said

Get into the head, desires, frustrations and misconceptions of the opposite sex!

“He Said, She Said” is your chance to hear what the “other side” has to say, as well as an opportunity for you to communicate what works and doesn’t work for you in dating & relationships…So come ready to share your questions, comments and experiences.

(Or, if you prefer, sit quietly with a drink and hear what others have to say. Participation is welcome, not required 🙂 )

The Ladies and Gentleman of the audience will lead the conversation while a relationship expert will moderate the discussion.
