In last week’s American Yated newspaper, the Shidduch Forum featured a question about the current shidduch system.
In a nutshell, the question addressed the fact that things are not working effectively the way they are now, as many people are not be serviced by the current shidduch system, so is there any halachic or hashkafic problem with what’s known as “speed-dating”? For example, 10 boys and 10 girls get together, in a supervised place of course, and talk to each other for 10 minutes per pair. Can it start being instituted, bypassing the back and forth that negatively impacts dating?
I am curious to hear from other Matzav readers on whether this is something that can be implemented, at least for those in shidduchim for a few years who haven’t yet met their zivug.
