Young and innovative matchmaker Talia Aloush is revolutionizing the dating scene for the Jewish community in Chicago.

In Talia’s own words, “With a social work degree and background, I took a leap of faith in my career path to become a professional matchmaker to help Jewish singles find love.” She continues, “Since dating services and matchmaking companies are very expensive and exclusive, I have created an innovative solution to the matchmaking market.”

InLuv Matchmaking focuses on connecting Jewish singles with personalized experiences using AI technologies, helping clients find their ideal and compatible matches. Talia believes that “maintaining constant communication, openness, respect, and understanding between partners of a relationship can foster growth for both individuals.”

Talia’s collaboration with ChiTribe began when she was a featured guest at the first Chicago Singles Party organized by ChiTribe and MeetJew at Hubbard Inn. Bringing a lively group of attendees to the event, Talia quickly established a strong connection with ChiTribe, and the partnership has since flourished. Since February 2023, Talia and ChiTribe have successfully launched two new events for Jewish singles. The first of these groundbreaking events will be held on April 17th at Yours Truly in Old Town. It will be the first time ChiTribe has ever combined matchmaking with speed dating, an innovative approach made possible by Talia’s expertise. This event is geared towards a heteronormative audience.

Talia is also dedicated to helping ChiTribe cater to the LGBTQIA+ community. Collaborating with Rivka Yekker, a specialist in LGBTQIA+ matchmaking, Talia has helped organize ChiTribe’s first-ever LGBTQIA+ Speed Dating night. Taking place on May 2nd at Big Chicks, this inclusive event guarantees that all participants will receive at least three matches upon entry.

Matchmaker Advice from Talia

Talia’s advice for those looking for love is “to be open and willing to explore the possibilities – even one conversation or date could bring about life-changing results.” With her fresh ideas and commitment to inclusivity, Talia Aloush is leading the way in redefining the Jewish dating scene in Chicago. Her partnership with ChiTribe and the new events they have created together are sure to make a lasting impact on the community, bringing singles together in a fun, engaging, and welcoming environment.
