Once this initiative began, I couldn’t seem to shrug off the feeling that this initiative was a personal responsibility of each and everyone of us.

The problem was that being a single girl myself, I knew more girls then boys. Although this went completely against my nature and personality, I began networking at shabbos tables, weddings etc.

Each time I felt uncomfortable broaching the subject, I would have in mind that it was L’eloy Nishamas Elisheva and Yisroel. That gave me the extra push I needed to go out of my comfort zone and get things moving.

B’H, I currently have 3 pending shidduchim which look to be heading towards a first date. Might I mention, that for one, I had never met either boy nor girl, but having heard of both of them from friends/family it seemed to make sense. As for the second, I had “interrogated” my brother about each of the guys he knows, and after spending a short phone conversation with one of the boys he mentioned, it seemed to be applicable for a good friend of mine. The third, which just came about yesterday, a relative mentioned her friends son in passing over shabbos and after obtaining his resume, I suggested it to another friend of mine and it seems very promising!

Although this is all in the preliminary stages, I would have never had this drive to network had it not been for this initiative. I would like to give a big thanks to R ‘Levin and all those who got this started. This should be an Aliyah Neshama for both Elisheva and Yisroel and may we call have the zechus to establish Batay Yisroel.
