Jewish Matchmaking, Netflix’s latest reality TV dating show, has produced some real characters. Yet no one stands out quite like “sparkly unicorn” Harmonie Krieger. Harmonie, a 44-year-old single LA entrepreneur, caught viewers’ attention with her bubbly personality, long list of requirements in a partner, and her many stuffed animals as a middle-aged adult. Boy does matchmaker Aleeza Ben Shalom have her work cut out for her. Here’s everything fans — and prospective partners — need to know about Jewish Matchmaking‘s Harmonie, including her current age, birthday, zodiac sign, job, Instagram, hobbies, mom, grandma and more.

Jewish Matchmaking‘s Harmonie: Job, Age, Birthday, Zodiac Sign & Hobbies
Harmonie may look like a happy-go-lucky blonde, but she runs her own successful business to afford her luxurious lifestyle. Harmonie founded Pop Your Shop, an event-hosting business for promoting businesses by organizing events in the LA area. Her business even helped host an annual Coachella pre-event called Buchella, which promoted a fashion line, wine bar, Nail Garden and other brands. Harmonie’s LinkedIn shows she worked as the marketing and sales director for LA Fashion Week (LAFW) for a brief period before launching her own business in 2015. Before that, Harmonie worked for eight years as an event strategist. She studied business management and marketing at Syracuse University before starting her entrepreneurial career.
Harmonie was age 44 when Jewish Matchmaking filmed in the summer of 2022. Since then, she turned age 45, celebrating her birthday on February 5. Harmonie’s zodiac sign is Aquarius, which explains her larger-than-life personality.
Harmonie’s Instagram reveals she loves to travel to various destinations in California, Mexico, Florida and NYC. She also teaches fitness classes for Pound Fit, a “rockout workout” which involves cardio exercise with drum sticks. The Malibu resident also loves to go out for cocktails with friends and spend time at the beach. Harmonie enjoys the finer things in life, such as designer purses, flying on private jets, traveling the world, as well as attending swanky parties and runway fashion shows. She also started her own podcast last year called Life With Harmonie and is a motivational speaker.
Jewish Matchmaking‘s Harmonie’s Family: Mom, Grandma, Dad, Stuffed Animals & Baby?
“My friends always call me a young magical unicorn,” Harmonie said on Jewish Matchmaking. “I’m an only child, so when I was a little girl I had like 75 stuffed animals, and all the stuffed animals had a name, and they were my friends.”
Harmonie’s dad is orthodox, but thankfully he didn’t impose the strict orthodox Jewish traditions on his daughter, which Netflix viewers may recall in Unorthodox or My Unorthodox Life. That said, Harmonie probably could’ve used some grounding. On the show she expected an adequate suitor to be an adoring cheerleader, teammate, wants a child (with someone nearing the end of their fertility period), celebrates high holidays, demonstrates Jewish values and traditions, younger than 44, or older, passionate in bed, as well as a spontaneous traveler. Unsurprisingly this was a tall order for Aleeza to deliver on.
Before appearing on the show, Harmonie got sick, her dad continued battling Parkinson’s disease while also getting diagnosed with stage-four skin cancer, and her grandma’s health continued to decline.
Harmonie remains close to her 100-year-old grandma and mom, who also turns out to be Aquarius. Unfortunately Harmonie doesn’t appear to have found the right partner in life, yet, and still hasn’t fulfilled her mom’s wish that she deliver her own child. Despite the lack of human children, Harmonie is the proud mom of a fur baby Clover, her cute little pet dog. That’s certainly an improvement from all the fake fur baby inanimate objects in her bedroom.
Are Harmonie & Ben Still Together After Jewish Matchmaking?
Harmonie started off dating on the show with Aron Temkin, a professor of architecture who lives in Vermont and is a dean of one of the colleges. He appeared to be incredibly emotionally intelligent and available, something Harmonie isn’t used to, clearly used to dating younger [bleep] boys who waste her waning closing window to start a family. After realizing she would never feel anything romantically for Aron, she got set up on a date with a friend of a restauranteur, Delray Vice Mayor Adam Frankel. She also didn’t feel any attraction for Frankel. They say third times a charm, and it certainly looked that way for Harmonie. She went on a date making bouquets with “nice guy” and personal coach Ben.
Despite the two getting along well on their date, and looking like they’d definitely go on a second date, Harmonie and Ben’s relationship appears to have wilted fairly quickly. Harmonie doesn’t follow Ben on Instagram and all signs point to her still being single.
