A Look at Lox Club, a Membership-Based App Advertised for Jewish Singles
Nowadays, there’s a dating app for just about every religion, sexual preference, hobby, and interest you can think of – from dog lovers, music fans, and fitness fanatics to sober, polyamorous, and bi-curious people, you name it. The idea, of course, is that these niche apps boost the odds that you’ll find someone you have things in common with.
Case in point: Lox Club, a relatively new platform that’s aimed at “Jews with ridiculously high standards.” Being described like a Raya for Jewish people (and the people who love them), it isn’t super easy to get accepted onto this membership-based app.
As it turns out, the whole idea for Lox Club started as a joke. Founder Austin Kevitch has said the site was initially intended to be a parody of all the dating apps and sites he found so “superficial and cringe-y.” But it was peak COVID-19 times, leaving many super lonely with more time on their hands to actively search for love. Within just a few days, more than 1,000 people had applied for the Kevitch’s app before it even fully existed, leaving him with something unexpectedly special on his hands.
Lox Club, which officially launched in the fall of 2020, has since attracted a slew of eager applicants looking for – you know, the kind of person you want to grab a late-night bite at Katz’s deli with or someone your sweet grandmother would take a liking to. Unfortunately, not everyone gets approved, and there are some important considerations you’ll want to make when submitting your application to increase your odds of acceptance.
Here’s how to use Lox Club, plus some tips for getting approved and making the most of your app experience.
