Ralph Israel, the man who made a business out of being single, isn't single any more. Israel, whose Professional & Business Singles Network has provided an upscale and fertile ground for searching men and women throughout the Philadelphia area for more than a decade, no longer qualifies for membership. He and his new bride, Donna, have invited singles who attend the network's events to a "White Night Wedding Celebration" party at the King of Prussia Holiday Inn. The party is free and will start at 9 p.m. Friday.

A new singles organization, one that combines volunteerism with a chance to meet someone special, is giving new meaning to the adage "Do well by doing good. " Only four people attended the first meeting of the Single Volunteers of Bucks County in June: cofounders Marge Meehan, Charlene Briegel and Ted Morrison, plus one brave joiner. A mere four months later, the group has 143 active members, not counting the two who dropped out because they found each other and are no longer single.

So many massage therapists. A professional storyteller, too, and a psychotherapist. Two women "energy workers," but not from Peco. Government workers and psychologists and chiropractors and the ubiquitous computer consultant were represented as well. The food was pasta, white sauce and vegetables, and pizza, no meat toppings. No smoking, drinks optional. Men and women drinking. Talking, asking where are you from, who do you know. Casual dress. Name tags available, but few wear them.

It was a horse racing aficionado's dream come true - a psychic at the racetrack. But not many people at the Psychic Sunday Brunch at Garden State Park yesterday asked the obvious question: "Who's going to win the next race?" For the few who did, Joan Racik - a psychic and founder of Soothsayers Psychic Entertainment in Cheltenham, Pa. - said she had a vision that a long shot would win. "We figured that a lot of people are going to ask for the winners," said Racik before donning her gold-sequined hairpiece with dangling beads.

The Covenant Presbyterian Church had modest beginnings. Thirty-one years ago, it held its first services in the Grange Hall in Haddonfield. Within three years, the congregation of about 50 people constructed a small A-frame structure on Kings Highway in Cherry Hill. Every Sunday since, people have filed through its doors for services. The congregation now includes more than 225 people, and once again it is feeling cramped. When the church started plans for a new building two years ago, the response was overwhelmingly enthusiastic.

Jean Anne and John Morrow didn't really want to spend six days a week in school. Five days seemed like enough time for the couple - both elementary-school principals - to spend surrounded by long hallways, classrooms and creative student artwork. So two years ago, when the Morrows heard about a new church that would be meeting in a local elementary-school cafeteria, they said, "No, thank you. " After a few weeks, though, the Morrows relented and agreed to try Hope United Methodist Church, even if it did mean spending their Sunday in the Signal Hill School in Voorhees.

Sister Andrea Mueller encouraged a classroom full of men and women to celebrate life. Clad in a beige dress, glasses and pearls and sounding like a tasteful Joan Rivers, the petite redhead discussed dating, trust, protective emotional armor, communication and listening. She had an attentive audience. The approximately 30 people in attendance were taking part in a workshop titled "Are You Ready for a New Relationship?," led by Sister Mueller, of St. Paul's Church, Jersey City, at the fifth annual Regional Conference for the Separated and Divorced, held recently at Holy Cross High School in Delran.

John Lacey isn't just one of the walking wounded - he has enough hurt for an entire regiment. A teacher at a private school in New York, married for 10 years, John's little world collapsed one day when his wife ran off with his best friend. That's not what best friends are for. Misery supposedly loves company, and John should get plenty of it this year. "Dear John," the story of his search for survival as a sudden single, is the funniest of the new prime-time shows. It premieres tonight at 9 on Channel 3 as the herky-jerky fall TV season finally gets under way. For some viewers, "Dear John" will be a good reason not to touch the remote control.

Al Shrader was not worried about the snow watch last Thursday night. He was preoccupied about leaving his new dog, Rusty, home alone all evening. Still, he didn't want to miss seeing any of his new friends - his new family, really - so he went out anyway. Meanwhile, in her kitchen at the Chanticleer development in Cherry Hill, Eileen Flomenhoft was rushing through dinner to get the coffee made and the spice cake and cookies ready for the gathering that night, of her new family.

Hello there More than a year had passed since Dan lost Linda, his wife of 27 years, to ovarian cancer. He was spending a 2004 Saturday with a group of her friends and told them he was planning to join a singles group - the Valley Forge Walkers - the next day at the park. One couple said they knew a wonderful woman, Diana, who was a Walker, and suggested he introduce himself. Diana wasn't there the first week, but Dan found her the next time. They walked and talked together for an hour.

It looked like any holiday social scene - people greeting, laughing, talking, and later sharing a meal. But the crowd at Bertucci's at Cherry Hill Mall one recent evening had a slightly different tilt. These were members of Good Company, a group of senior citizens committed to sharing one another's lives as friends and companions without the pressure of dating. "We are definitely not a singles dating group," said Barbara Greenbaum, one of the founders of Good Company, who oversees the 100-member group without an official title.

The DNA we carry in all our cells tells the story of our origins - and it's turning out to be quite a twisted tale, according to the scientists trying to read it. A new study concludes that the ancestors of today's people included Neanderthals and other archaic humans. It contradicts the "Eve" theory that all modern humans are descended from a single group that originated in Africa and replaced all predecessors about 50,000 years ago. The report, published today in the journal Nature, adds to a body of evidence redefining "human.

Logically, Trinity Memorial Church should be demolished and its 80 or 90 members merged with one of three other Episcopal churches within easy walking distance of 22nd and Spruce streets. But a lot of Catholics, Jews, Presbyterians, atheists and Unitarians won't let it die. A lot of people who never sat in its pews are putting time, effort and money into rebuilding the fire-ravaged 120-year-old church. Trinity Memorial, whose roof was transformed into a fireball July 28 following a lightning strike, is not merely a church.

"Do you come here often?" "What's your sign?" "He's got a great personality. " These are some of the lines that make single people cringe. They've heard them countless times, perhaps in bars or from the mouths of well-intended friends who are trying to help them end their singlehood. But increasingly, many singles tired of the usual "meat markets" and bad blind dates are looking toward what used to be an unlikely source to improve their social life: churches and synagogues.
