  1. Nu, bottom line, what are the ages of both chosson and kalla? Are they helping the dreaded age-gap crises?! The age-gap weighs heavily on me and I stay up nights worrying with concern about this ever growing deadly crises.

      • Because we were told/brainwashed that if a bachur doesn’t go/get in to Brisk – Reb Avraham Yehoshua ( not Yagdil, Reb David or Reb Tzvi Kaplan. It must be Brisk), he will NOT get a “good” shidduch with a daughter of a Rosh Yeshiva or the daughter of a wealthy shver. Forget his middos tovos. Forget his hasmada. Forget his erlichkeit. He is in essence a worthless piece of meat. You can deny it from hiynt biz morgen, but that is the reality in todays warped shidduch world.

  2. The article doesn’t mention anything about the Schuss family, they are a very nice family as well, very involved in the community also.

  3. any information about the chassan other than his name, where does he learn, what does he plan on doing in the future like rabbanus or business?

  4. the chasson is a gem of a boy, he is going to brisk i heard. He is a tremendous masmid and lamdan with sterling middos, a regular Darchei Talmud!!

  5. Chosson is the grandson of Ely Kleinman. Both Mr. Kleinman and Mr. Rechnitz shared the stage at the last daf yomi siyum hashas. Invei hagefen v”invei hagefen. Mazal tov.

  6. In recent years I have seen many Darchei boys going to EY a little earlier and not staying too long, coming home, and dating at 21 and going back to learn in EY after marriage. That is definitely the mehalech of Nasi Project and Mr Rechnitzs’ endeavors.

    Mazel tov!

    • btw that is the chassons grandfather, his father R Yitz Schuss is very involved in the klal in a very quiet and unassuming way
