I was inspired by the words of Rabbi Boruch Hirschfeld that he shared with us at the inaugural meeting that took place regarding the new shidduch initiative in Cleveland, OH. He explained to us that since the initiative began, there have been numerous engagements in our community . Although the engagements were not necessarily a direct result of the initiative, he suggested that the siyata d’shmaya that the community was seeing in the area of shidduchim was a result of the fact that people are doing hishtadlus. He said that “doing” brings brocha. Our responsibility is to try, reach out, make the phone call, and Hashem will send the siman brocha.
