Aish HaTorah Institute
Speed dating began in the 1990s when a Rabbi with the Aish HaTorah Institute in Los Angeles developed the idea of allowing people to meet for quick snippets and then, if two people expressed interested in following up, encouraging them to continue exploring the relationship. While other organizations and companies have expanded on that idea, Aish HaTorah still owns the trademark SpeedDating and Aish HaTorah branches throughout North America sponsor speed dating events for Jewish singles in their localities. In South Florida, the Miami branch of Aish HaTorah sponsors speed-dating events which allows Jewish singles to meet.
