How does the firewall work?

The 'firewall' is a set of two-way filters that creates a comfortable experience for all members. The filters are based on age, your jewish outlook, and other criteria.

Your Jewish Outlook Profiles You'll See
Yeshivish Blackhat, Yeshivish Modern, Hassidish, Modern Orthodox Machmir All shomer Shabbat and shomer Kashrut members. Nobody else.
Modern Orthodox Liberal, Carlbachian, Shomer Mitzvot People like you + the category above this and the category below this
Conservadox, Conservative, Traditional, Traditional and Growing People like you + the category above this and the category below this
Reform, Reconstructionist, Secular, Unaffiliated People like you + the category above this

The Age firewall will exclude all members who have a greater than 20 year age difference than you.

You can see all the filters and firewalls by clicking 'Search', 'Who Can't I See?', 'View/Edit Filters'. You can learn more about our firewall policy here.
