10k Batay Yisroel has really inspired me to start suggesting. What pushed me 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 am 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 worth it.
Tizku L’mitzvos!
