By now you've probably heard of Tinder, the newest entry into the world of online dating. A smartphone app, it makes it easy for people to meet potential matches based on photos and proximity. A quick swipe right means you're interested and a swipe left means a lack of interest. If both swipe right, it's a match!
Now Hasidic comedian Mendy Pellin of the Jewlicious website has come up with Kinder, a Jewish parody of Tinder, which puts Jewish mothers in the center of the dating process. In this video, Mendy interviews the founder of the new popular dating app for Jewish singles.
There really is a similar application called JSwipe, which has just merged with JDate, but it doesn't put Jewish mothers in the role of uploading their childrens' photos, as the fictional Kinder does.
