I am a girl in shidduchim for quite a few years now. It is a tough ride. Sometimes I wondered if people were forgetting about me or maybe ignoring me. Could it be that besides my family maybe no one feels my pain or truly cares? Then 10K Batay Yisroel came into the picture. I recall seeing the ads every so often. I did not know exactly what they were about but those ads were like sparks of light, glimmers of hope for me. Recently I got a chance to check out the website and it blew me away. I feel like somebody cares and understands me. I read up about Yisroel and Elisheva z”l and it really tore my heart. Yisroel’s rock solid Bitachon, love for others, Elisheva’s pure middos. Although I did not know them they taught me so much. I signed up for the e-mails and suggested a shidduch that I had thought of a few weeks before but this gave me the courage to actually work on it. I hope and pray that if it is meant to be Hashem will push it through. I was extremely touched by R’ Levins speeches. Now I realize that someone cares and feels my pain. Even amidst such a devastating loss. My whole outlook on Shidduchim has changed.
Like R’ Levin says, I will try to make my shidduch and connection with Hashem stronger and hopefully He will send me someone “even better than I expected”.
I pray that my efforts and inspiration should be an Aliyah for their pure Neshamos Amen.
Thank you so much 10K Batay Yisroel.
