CoronaCrush & JScreen Partner to Promote Relationships & Health During Social Distancing

April 22, 2020

Social Media Group with over 10,000 Followers Focuses on Uniting Jewish Singles During Stay At Home Orders

JScreen, a national non-profit public health initiative dedicated to preventing Jewish genetic diseases, and CoronaCrush, a Facebook group “creating Jewish Couples in Quarantine” announced a partnership with love, health, and the current pandemic in mind. The CoronaCrush Facebook group has over 10,000 followers and is designed to help Jewish singles continue their search for love while not being able to leave their house.  “We thought this is the perfect combination of helping people find their soulmate while caring about their future families,” said Hillary Kener Regelman, National Director of Outreach for JScreen. “It makes so much sense since CoronaCrush’s goal is to have people find their basheret and ours is to have them have healthy babies.”In addition to the partnership, JScreen will sponsor a CoronaCrush King and Queen of the Week. This will be a weekly coronation for the guy and girl who receive the most ‘likes’ in the group. The winners will each receive a JScreen swag bag. In addition to sponsoring this award, JScreen will give any couple who gets engaged from CoronaCrush a free screening kit.Dina Plotch of New York City, the first CoronaCrush JScreen Queen, added, “Jscreen is such an important organization! I’m so glad we have these services to ensure a bright future for the next generation of corona crushers!””We started CoronaCrush because we wanted to provide our single friends with a fun and supportive environment to continue to meet and date,” said CoronaCrush co-founder Ian Mark. “We’re excited to partner with JScreen because they’re providing a very serious and crucial service to new couples and while our group is meant to be fun, we encourage all the dating in our group to be done in the framework of serious dating.” JScreen is a national online genetic screening program based at Emory University School of Medicine’s Department of Human Genetics. JScreen is uniquely equipped, with its innovative at-home genetic testing process, to provide TeleHealth services during this time of social distancing. JScreen’s “spit kits” are sent in the mail and returned to the lab via prepaid postage — everything can be done from the safety of one’s home.  For more information, please visit JScreen.org.
