We would like to wholeheartedly thank first of all the Almighty that in His love and mercy He heard our prayers, and made our shidduch that Baruch Hashem ended, or rather began with our wedding! When we registered we did not expect that our "Zivug" will come through the website.
The organizers do a great job, a great mitzvah helping creat Jewish families. Special thanks to Miriam Portnoy for participation, support and sensitive approach during the shiduch!
We really appreciate your help in making this the best place on the web to find the best place for your date!
Discussion: As with any other business transaction, a shadchan must be paid a fee for arranging a shidduch. It makes no difference if the shadchan was engaged by one of the parties or if he volunteered his services or even if the shadchan is non-professional; in all cases the shadchan must be paid for his services. The shadchan may petition a beis din to force the parties to pay his fee. The amount to be paid is divided equally between the two sides, even if the shadchan spent more time with one of them. At the shadchan’s discretion, he may charge only one of the parties involved half of the going rate and forgo the other half.
Both sides (usually the singles themselves, parents, close relatives or friends of the persons involved) make inquiries about the prospective partner, e.g.
on his/her character, intelligence, level of learning, financial status, family and health status, appearance and level of religious observance.
We take a comprehensive approach to your shidduch needs, giving you personal attention throughout.
We offer well-researched shidduch suggestions but also so much more: a listening ear and helping hand in every aspect of shidduchim.
