What pushed me to start redting shiduchim was hearing about Yisroel and Elisheva, learning how you don’t need to be an experienced shadchan to make a suggestion, and realising that I could do something that would be a zechus for them.
It’s very much out of my comfort zone, because I’m a single girl who doesn’t really know any boys. But now I network anyhow, and ask people about boys they know and tell them about girls I know, and you never know what can come of that!
Just last night I made another suggestion liliuy nishmasam and now I’m about to go make some phone calls to find out if a different family I’m trying to suggest a shiduch for, is matim for a family I already know. Out of my comfort zone entirely! But most definitely worth it. It should be a zechus for their neshamos.
Tizku L’mitzvos!
