Adina Kalish was sent by a Jewish television network to report on the interior workings of an adult retirement community in Florida, and to observe Jewish grandparents from across the nation. But she had an ulterior motive -- to find herself a man.
Adina tried to get dates by interviewing Century Village grandparents and asking about their grandsons. She knew that it wouldn't take long for the grandmothers to try to set her up. As the saying goes, If you want to find a mensch, find his grandma first.
One grandma gave her the name of her grandson. After calling a few wrong numbers, Adina found the right Scott and they agreed to a date in New York City. They met in a restaurant in Columbus Circle and Adina brought along a hidden camera crew.
So did it work out? Did Adina find her mensch? You'll have to watch the video to find out. Enjoy!
