I just want to get a message out to your readers:
For families: As Pesach is fast approaching and the families are getting together, please remember your single sisters and brothers. While most people my age are anticipating getting together with their siblings, and going to Mommy’s hotel for a vacation, for us, it’s no vacation. The single daughter is the one who has to babysit everyone’s children, set up the tables for each meal, serve, clean up etc. All the while, all the siblings and sister/brother-in-laws are discussing their children, sheitels etc. while we sit among them, a stranger among family. Please be considerate and do not take advantage of your single siblings and lift a hand. Include us in conversations we can relate to.
For friends: As the extended families sit around the table, please ask your brothers/brother-in-laws if they know of anyone for your single friends. Have us in mind please, and try to network for your single friends.
Thank you and good yom tov!
You single sister, friend, and neighbor
