300 Shadchanim Meet Near Kosel to Discuss Shidduchim for Older Singles


About 300 shadchanim from across Israel gathered this week to discuss the important matter of shidduchim for older singles.

The event was held several hundred feet from the Kosel, in the ballroom of Yeshivas Aish HaTorah.

The conference was organized by the Hagefen organization headed by Rabbi Chaim Shmerel, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Oraysa.

The event was divided into three parts. The panel that opened the conference featured the mayors of chareidi cities, Chanoch Zeibart of Bnei Brak, Yaakov Gutterman of Modiin Illit and Meir Rubinstein of Betar Illit.

The panel discussed professional opportunities and the job market, issues that often affect matchmaking.

  1. I found the first 2 pictures exceptionally poignant. Just look at those chairs & tables. If one is not moved to tears, he is seriously lacking. That’s not to say the napkins are nothing, but still.

  2. But some people kept on (and still are) saying that older singles-shidduch crisis are only a problem of Litvaks and by Chasidim everything is fine?? So why are all these Chasidim having a conference about the problem of older singles?

    I guess Chasidim have problems too.
