Fay Brezel: Where is the Jewish Matchmaking Cast Member Now?

If there’s one thing nobody can deny, it’s the fact that Netflix’s ‘Jewish Matchmaking‘ lives up to not only its title but also its parent production by being the perfect blend of cozy, fun, and cringy. After all, apart from delving into the age-old process of shidduch (or arranged marriages), it even shines a light upon the realities of Judaism as members try to balance tradition with modernity. Amongst those to thus feature in this original series to help navigate the same was Fay Brezel — so now, if you simply wish to learn more about her, we’ve got the necessary details for you.

Fay Brezel’s Jewish Matchmaking Journey

From the moment Fay first came across our screens with her bright smile, hopeful eyes, and vibrant demeanor, she made it evident she is as perfectly independent as she is devoutly Orthodox. That’s because while she may cover her head, shoulders, knees, toes as a sign of devotion to her life of faith, she’s also an entrepreneur with an unbudging passion for health and wellness. It hence comes as no surprise the first thing on this 28-year-old Flatbush, New York, native’s criteria list for a partner was for him to understand her aspirations, all the while sharing similar values.

In other words, Fay’s ideal man is worldly yet still very religious, which she admitted was a unique combination and might be challenging to find, but she knew it would be worth the wait. That is, as long as he had good characteristics (kind, caring, optimistic), embodied being “frum” as much as her (if not more), as well as practiced “shomer negiah” (no physical touch until marriage). These aspects, she expressed, would help her and her potential partner go down a more meaningful, fulfilling route rather than one centered around attention, unnecessary options, or selfish desires.

So, of course, Fay was positively surprised when matchmaker Aleeza Ben Shalom managed to pair her with fellow Orthodox Jew Shaya Rosenberg, only for them to immediately hit it off. The truth is this duo seemed almost 100% compatible on paper, plus they clearly liked one another as they went on three relatively quick dates without any outside opinions or pressure. But alas, the latter then decided to have an honest conversation with her about their level of religiousness before calling it quits — he liked her, yet he knew they weren’t on the same page on arguably the most critical aspect.

Fay Brezel is Running Her Mental Health Consulting Company

Fay was obviously disappointed with how she and Shaya ended, but she also saw it as a blessing in disguise as it indicated there could be something much better for her in the cards. Though whatever or whoever it may be seemingly hasn’t entered her life until now because it appears as if she’s still single and merely dedicating herself to her work as well as her God. In fact, from what we can tell, this New York-based Licensed Mental Health Counselor has since done wonders in owning-operating her mental health consulting company, OKclarity, thanks to her social media presence.

OKclarity is actually the first of its kind by being an online mental health and wellness directory through which clients from across the globe can find the right Jewish professionals for them. Whether it be therapists, psychiatrists, nutritionists, or personal coaches, her database includes them all to ensure both patients and experts have a platform where their voice is genuinely heard. Plus, we should mention that Fay is technically a published author as well — she released her book ‘Grow with the Flow: A Therapeutic Coloring Book’ in early 2022, which, as the name suggests, is a 120-page guided coloring book with personal growth exercises attached.
