Some of the same people who don’t bother answering or are busy “ thinking of a name “ for the past year …. Now sitting together so what’s the point ?

Not always the case

My son is in shidduchim and so many times a shadchan has sent a resume to a girl’s mother and THEY are the ones who ignore. Instead of saying no, they just ghost the shadchan. It works both ways

The shadchan needs to follow up. If no one follows up people assume there’s no need to respond.
Also when a shadchan actually follows up, it often results in people taking a second look and maybe deciding its worth a shot.

I agree, I am talking about the shadchan actually following up and the person just ignoring them. Trust me, it happens all the time

There are 20+ Shadchanim, if you weren’t satisfied with the ones you met last time, this is an opportunity to meet new ones. One never knows who will come up with an idea.

Beautiful initiative

Thank you!

Can there more explanation of what ChabadMatch does, and how it works.

Are there any experts (Rabbi Ives?) involved? Can THEY encourage more use of this system?

Are there any Rabbonim involved?

Every good deed to help in Shidduchim is greatly appreciated.
Much Hatzlacha!

It’s a database with 3000 profiles of Chabad singles. There is an algorithm that makes suggestions based on the details in the profile. Shadchanim use it to find ideas, and parents/singles can do limited searches. Last month 17 couples got engaged via the site.

what's the point

They tell u that now mothers have to suggest a name and then the shadchin can help you.

Yeh?

How much are you willing to pay a Shadchan?

Are you willing to pay by the hour?

They are missing the best of the best

Where is Rebitzin Leibowitz? Why would I go to an event without the most dynamic Shadchan there. We should hear besuros tovos

everyone must be shadchan

stop complaining and blaming get on the phone and suggest a shidduch for someone else

Looking for a friend

Who are some good contacts in our community who help match up more modern singles? My friend is baalei teshuva, went to Chabad yeshiva and is very close with Chabad, but is a bit more modern/laid back. Thank you!
