However, we both had resources that would aid the other in their specific branch of diversity work, and we were more than willing to share the wealth.
“Soon by You” shines a light on the world of Orthodox Jewish dating, where dates are often set up by matchmakers, ramping up both expectations and anxieties when a couple first meet.
