When he and his wife divorced, he found himself on foreign ground. “I’d never even looked one in the eye.” Irenstein’s former Hasidic community, Gur, is one of the strictest sects, as well as one of the most sexually squeamish.He, became a dating coach himself, sometimes freelancing for New York Dating Coach, other times taking on private clients.But he doesn’t charge for the one-on-one coaching he offers people like Sam and the dating seminars he conducts at Footsteps, a nonprofit that helps OTD’ers assimilate.Pollack brought a girl with him and Irenstein pulled him aside to say, “She likes you. Since growing out of baby clothes, Pollack had worn nothing but the requisite white button-down shirt and black pants. We stand outside Barnes & Noble, watching the people pass.Kiss her.” Never having kissed a girl, he was scared, but with Irenstein’s encouragement, he went for it. Irenstein points to a woman sitting nearby, engrossed in her Black Berry, and starts feeding Sam lines: “Tell her you’re waiting for somebody and that it looks like she’s waiting for somebody,” Irenstein suggests.Jewish uk Jewish uk is powered by JDate.com, the leading online personals site for Jewish singles around the world.Its free to join and members can find dates in the UK, USA, Israel, Europe, South Africa, and Australia.He remembers his 6-year-old coming home from school and telling him that non-Jews existed solely to witness the good deeds of the Jews.He’d wanted out of Hasidism for a while, but that was the day he pulled his kids out of school and laid plans to move.“If I could work magic in your dating life,” Israel Irenstein says, “what would you have me change?” We’re sitting at a table at Pret A Manger in Union Square, and Irenstein, a 35-year-old dating coach dressed neatly in a pale green Tommy Hilfiger button-down, is talking with Sam, a 29-year-old ex-Orthodox Jew.
