ABOUT US

We’re on a mission to help you make new and meaningful Jewish connections – friendships, partnerships, relationships and more – and to make you happier and healthier in the process!

Tribester helps Jewish professionals meet and connect through our own hosted events (highlighted by The Tribal Ball on December 24) and by supporting and promoting worthwhile Jewish community events.

We sponsor all sorts of events – dating, networking, cultural, charitable, travel and more – all geared to helping you meet new people and make new connections.

Why? Because, according to study after study, “good relationships are the strongest, most consistent predictor there is of a happy life.

Tribester is part of IntroLeague, a company dedicated to helping all people make new and meaningful connections and to improve their health, their mental state, their happiness and their lives in the process.

“Good relationships are the strongest, most consistent predictor there is of a happy life.

A SECRET TO HAPPINESS

It’s all about the people.

According to the Harvard Study of Adult Development, the world’s longest study on happiness, relationships with family, friends and community” are what keep people happy throughout their lives.”

Social connections are “critical for both physical and mental health“, help our brains age better and are “better predictors of long and happy lives than social class, IQ, or even genes.”

A study examining 148 other studies found “the influence of social relationships on the risk of death are comparable with well-established risk factors for mortality such as smoking and alcohol consumption and exceed the influence of other risk factors such as physical inactivity and obesity.”

Yet, we spend barely more than 30 minutes a day on any socializing and communicating between two adults (versus three hours for television) and only 4 minutes a day (24 total hours a year), “hosting and attending social events.” Social isolation may represent one of our greatest public health threats.

Bill Gates thinks addressing this issue and helping people make new connections is the most pressing problem technology might solve in the next 10 years. Through Tribester, IntroLeague and other products we intend to introduce, we’re dedicated to helping.

 Social connections “are better predictors of long and happy lives than social class, IQ, or even genes.”

OUR NAME

Our name is intended to be a playful spin on “Member of the Tribe”,  itself a “slightly tongue-in-cheek reference to Jews, usually by Jews” per Urban Dictionary.

To the extent the name evokes a sense of community or belonging, welcome aboard! We decidedly do not intend the name as a nod to “tribalism” of which we are a trillion percent opposed.

Like and follow us like a good Jewish boy / girl.
