Video: The Freezer Is Open

9

couple23As many are aware, the “freezer” opened this week at Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ. Under the “freezer” rule, new bochurim during their first zeman in the Lakewood Yeshiva are not permitted to enter the parsha of shidduchim – i.e., they may not officially date – until Tu B’Shevat during the winter zeman or Shiva Asar B’Tammuz during the summer zeman. [There is an exception, which is that if a bochur already started dating before the beginning of the zeman and his official entrance into BMG, he may continue to date that girl and that girl only.]

In honor of the opening of the “freezer” and countless bochurim entering the parsha of shidduchim for the first time, Matzav.com‘s Featured Video today is “Find My Zivug Now” .

  1. The freezer is actually till rosh chodesh Adar. They usually open it a few days before Tu BiShvat, and it’s official when R’ Jacobs gives a shmooze about dating, which usually takes place a few days before Tu BiShvat. Being that he didn’t give the shmooze yet (rumors are that he’s in Eretz Yisrael) it’s not officially open yet.

  2. DEAR EDITOR, THERE’S NO REASON WHY THIS VIDEO SHOULD BE HERE. I STRONGLY AGREE WITH THE LAST TWO COMMENTS. PLEASE TAKE DOWN THIS VIDEO IMMEDIATLEY. THANK YOU.

  3. This strange things–“freezers”, etc., etc. are so upsetting that you have to remind oneself of the Greatenest of the Torah, Avoida and Gmilas Chasodim.
    Bli neder,I will start some Avoidas HaMusar if I hear again about shtus of “freezers” and everything else that prevents “Habo l’taher–Misayem oisoy”…

  4. Why does the boy pat the “girl” on the shoulder? I understand that it’s another guy wearing pants and all, but this was done very poorly. There’s a lack of kovod. The boy or girl might not be the person you can see yourself marrying, but you don’t have to show such disdain. I realize that it was done in jest, but honestly there’s a terrible message being sent out here.
