When it comes to shidduchim, out-of-town singles are at a disadvantage. They lack the selection that cities on the East Coast have, as well as access to appropriate shadchanim and dating opportunities. We have long stood behind this cause with our SimchaLink program, providing shadchan services, dating advice, resume building and help with dating expenses.
This past Sunday, November 10th, 2019, over thirty shadchanim from out-of-town communities met in Chicago for a day of networking. Cities such as Detroit, Baltimore, Toronto, Cleveland and St. Louis, among many others, were represented by shadchanim who came together to brainstorm for possible shidduchim.
The goal of the event was to create connections between shadchanim from various cities to help facilitate inter-city shidduchim. The attendees were addressed by Rabbi Shmuel Fuerst, Dayan Agudath Israel of Illinois, our co-Founder, and facilitator of shidduchim, who shared words of bracha and hatzlacha. “If we come together l’sheim shamayim,” he said, “then Hashem will bless our endeavor with hatzlacha.”
After networking, each shadchan was given the opportunity to describe a few singles they know from back home. Over lunch, shadchanim sat together to brainstorm and met with singles from Chicago. A WhatsApp group will be formed for further collaboration.
We are dedicated to bringing about more shidduchim, and hope to hear many more Mazal Tovs!
