  1. There should be some serious thought given to encourage “cross-cultural” shidduchim between Yeshivish and Chassidish. We have more in common than you think.

  2. where is this in NY or EY? never heard of this crisis before. uh oh do I hear some askan smelling business here. time to come up with more baala batishe eitzos to help the KB'”H. heres hoping that we can figure out how to deal with personal problems (look internally), rather than make them into communal crises (external). anyone get my drift here?

  3. A number of years ago Rabbi Moshe Heinemann suggested that the older Litfishe girls should meet the older Chasidishe boys. Perhaps this will resolve the shiduch crisises

  4. Huh?

    But have we been hearing, like a broken record, in like the last few years, that the alleged ‘shidduch crisis’ is only a ‘Litvishe’ problem??

    What’s next? Are you going to tell me that Chasidim have kids going off the derech too?

    ???? ?????!

    Can one believe such things???

  5. well well .people have to remember its all done in heaven 20 years ago .so take you foot off the gas pedel or brake. its doing pushing the elevator button after was pushed already.

  6. please stop being silly what we have been hearing until now is that by Chasidim the problem is in the reverse as many of the boy marry girls older than them in arranged marriages. Anyone with a brain who knows a little math can understand the shidduch crisis – no need to mock indisputable fact as clear as 1+ 1 =2
