Listen to this episode of Working with guest Danielle Selber.
If you’re a single person who has struck out online or is too busy to jump into the dating pool, Danielle Selber wants to have coffee with you. She’s a matchmaker with Tribe 12, a Jewish nonprofit in Philadelphia. Host Aisha Harris met Selber in coffee shop to talk about her job, the history of matchmaking in Jewish culture, and what it takes to find the perfect match in the digital age. Plus, Aisha answers a few of Selber’s typical coffee questions.
