  1. Can someone PLEASE explain this to me – & I’m serious. “90,646 boys were born as compared to 85,584 girls” That makes about 5000 MORE boys than girls, & that’s an average in any population (Israel, US) in any given year. So how come there is a shidduch crises with so many girls (only) not getting married? Did all those boys get swallowed in the Bermuda Triangle?
    Somethig just doesn’t add up (MTP).

  2. Shidduch crisis, schmidduch crisis. G-d ensures we have more Daniels. Daniel did not marry. It is not a tragedy when a single bachur lives
