Woman Offers 15,000 Shekel for a Shidduch

9

shidduch-smallApparently, in the city of Beit Shemesh, there is a shortage of suitable bachelors. In one of the local ad circulars, a 34-year-old chareidi woman placed an ad offering 15,000 shekel for a shidduch. In chareidi circles, 34 is considered “old,” making it that much more difficult to find a shidduch. The section where this ad appeared in the circular generally has lost and found postings. This posting was written in a similar fashion, offering substantial money to one who “finds” a shidduch for this bas Yisroel. A phone number was printed in the ad for people to call and leave a message with the appropriate information.

The woman states that she is “intelligent” and that she would move to America if necessary.

shidduchMay Hashem bentch all singles that they find their respective zivuggim bekarov.

  1. That is Bubkes. How about offering an apartment, $1500 per month, etc.
    All kidding aside, hopefully she finds the right one, without paying an Agura.

  2. How do you know that the person posted it or herself? Perhaps some well meaning friend posted it for her? She said she is willing to go to Chutz Laaretz, not only necessarily America.

  3. HOW DO I GET IN TOUCH,? IM 34 CHASIDESHE MALE. IF SHE HAS MIDDOS TOVOS AND IS DECENT LOOKING IM INTERESTED. CAN GIVE THE $ TO TZEDAKA.

  4. Question: Was this a “real” ad, or is someone trying to call more attention to the horrendous situation that “older” (and not so old but poorer) women and girls are in these days, when the “shidduch crisis” is threatening the basis of hareidi society?

    The family is our bedrock, and when girls and women are subjected to the anguish and anxiety of the “shidduch scene” it will affect them even after they are (hopefully) married. Let the Gedolim do more than talk about it – let them analyze the situation and take real measures to help us avoid a meltdown.

  5. There’s no shidduch crisis. There are problems in the economy, in demographics, and chinuch however.

    Modernism is the biggest problem.
