Looking for love? Head to Israel. According to a Central Bureau of Statistics report this week, the proportion of single Jews in Israel is continuing to grow, particularly among the young. In 2006, 76 per cent of Jewish men aged 20-29 were single, up from 73 per cent in 2000, and 60 per cent of women in this age bracket were single, up from 54 per cent in 2000. But if you're after a proposal, be warned - the main reason for the increase? A desire to delay marriage.
