Ever since 10K Batay Yisroel was founded, I changed my approach to redting and becoming involved in shidduchim. After hearing Rabbi Levin’s request from HaKodosh Baruch Hu and knowing the Kaplan’s humble acceptance with pure Emunah, one cannot remain unchanged. I knew Elisheva and her genuine smile and cheer, she is truly missed. I am sure Yisroel was the perfect balance in outstanding middos as well.
Since then, I have pushed myself to act on ideas and become more involved with shidduchim. Without a doubt all the shidduchim I redt now or become involved in are with the drive to perpetuate the memory of Elisheva and Yisroel A’H.
May each of their neshamos have continued Aliyos. I look forward to the day when they will be greeted by all the couples and their families created through their Zechusim.
Regarding the shidduch, there was much siyata d’shmaya as the idea just “popped” in my head. It was so “random” but so clear. And there was much hashgacha too; from me and my girls having to change seats in Shul and end up sitting near someone new to the Shul and introducing ourselves.; to my son just having to need to come home in a week during camp and having it be right after the 9 days and he desperate for a haircut; and finally we were trying to get a regular appointment and couldn’t which, made it necessary for the Bochur to come to my house for a private haircut. All these ‘coincidences’ lead to the shidduch happening. Hashem’s hand my be hidden but He surely made the shidduch happen in a magnificent way.
May Hashem bless you all for all you do.
Bracha and Hatzlacha.
