You a guy or girl? I don’t get this.November 11, 2010 5:41 am at 5:41 am #729114BEST IMAParticipant
Im not a guy so i dont get a vote and even though i cant see anyone actually walking around with name tags i think its a great idea! I have brothers and cousins etc.. there nobody knows who anybody is! And it would be a great help to put a letter next to the name on the tag: F for freezer D for defrosted M for married. It would definately simplify things when it comes to shidduchim!November 11, 2010 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #729115
I love the F,D,M idea! It would definitely simplify things. There are so many guys in BMG who have sisters to marry off and what better place to look than one with literally thousands available?November 11, 2010 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #729116not IMember
I think they should just have the barcode.. the one they mail out before the zman. Then you find out from the office in a more dignified manner..
Besides people like that they are annonymous there. no one knows you so who cares!!November 11, 2010 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #729117
You know how smartphones can now scan barcodes? We can write up a program where you scan the barcode and that leads you to the guys resume. I can just imagine the scene!November 11, 2010 6:55 pm at 6:55 pm #729118whatrutalkingabtMember
BMG has seating charts so anyone who is trying to look someone up can easily find himNovember 11, 2010 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #729119snapplegrlMember
i vote yes- only good can come out of it… seating charts are good but u have to go find the potential person. If everyone has nametags you can bump into a person and know who he is and decide if he is good for sister, neice, cousin… i think it will help.. its a little superficial just looking at the boys but physical compatibility is a plus to check into more..November 11, 2010 7:10 pm at 7:10 pm #729120
I find this thread disturbing…November 11, 2010 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #729121MoqMember
A ‘famed shadchan’ reads tefillin bags…I guess this is a more effecient versionNovember 11, 2010 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #729123
Maybe they should also add y for yeshivish and ns for not so yeshivish oh and n for not at all and btw I think pink would be the perfect color for the labelsNovember 11, 2010 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #729124IDKyetMember
haha, i definitely think it’s a cute idea but it would never go over well with the guys! who wants to wear a label (that says everything about him) on his sleeve? especially with a barcode, it’s a yeshiva, not a grocery store!November 11, 2010 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #729125
I knew you would without you having to comment 😉
It’s not only the ‘famed shadchan’….
I don’t agree with the yeshivish/non-yeshivish label because everyone has a different definition. But pink!! Awesome idea!
“especially with a barcode, it’s a yeshiva, not a grocery store!”
Isn’t the shidduch scene called the “market” for a reason?! We’re just getting more sophisticated 🙂November 11, 2010 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #729126IDKyetMember
good point, i’ll take back what i said. i’m just not for the whole “selling yourself to the highest bidder” approach that shidduchim has become.November 11, 2010 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #729127
Believe me, I’m not for it either. But unfortunately, that’s the way things are…November 11, 2010 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #729128squeakParticipant
it’s a cute idea but it would never go over well with the guys! who wants to wear a label (that says everything about him) on his sleeve?
So if the label has the name of some shaygetz, the bochurim not only WANT to wear it but COVET the label and flaunt it- but if it’s his own name you think he wouldn’t like it?November 11, 2010 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #729129
btw about sidduchim every body these days is filling out profiles about them selves and sending it to shadchanim maybe there should be a programed web site with all these profiles and will tell u multiple ideas and best match (joke)November 11, 2010 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm #729130bptParticipant
Name tag? Not necessary.
Price tag? Definitely!November 11, 2010 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #729131
Great now I have someone else on my case 😉November 11, 2010 10:03 pm at 10:03 pm #729132not IMember
mcsfeb.. Not so funny they have Shidduch data bases. you type in your choices and the responses pop up!!November 11, 2010 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #729133
what i meant to say was it is sad what we come to Seriously if i put on the profile more emotinal or whatever and they match it up with similer or however it works idk i just think people are not machines and u cant make a shidduch unless u know the personNovember 11, 2010 11:04 pm at 11:04 pm #729134BEST IMAParticipant
Squeak you make a very good pointNovember 11, 2010 11:19 pm at 11:19 pm #729135The Rabbi RocksMember
🙂 ha ha 🙂 i vote yes 🙂November 12, 2010 1:54 am at 1:54 am #729136sof davar hakol nishmaMember
i vote yes, but it will never happen! good idea though!November 12, 2010 2:07 am at 2:07 am #729137metrodriverMember
It would be a good idea just for the purpose of preventing interlopers and *** agents from infiltrating the ranks. But then again, they (the Gov’t Agents) would give themselves away. As they always do. I can cite dozens of examples. Some that I experienced firsthand.November 12, 2010 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm #729138MonseyFanMember
I think they should replace the barcodes with RFID tags and put it in their wallets. This way you could (1) automatically keep track of when anyone entered or left the bais medrash (cuts down on the slackers) and (2), you could just walk near a fellow to read his tag. No need to squint to read the barcode. Even better yet- with enough RFID readers, you could keep the exact location of anyone in the Bais Hemedrash in an updated database, accessible from a iPhone app. Wow! I think I have an idea for a new business!November 12, 2010 6:08 pm at 6:08 pm #729139rcParticipant
would be so much more efficient if they just wore a tag that said what they are looking for. THen we could really solve this shidduch crisis.November 14, 2010 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #729140

Wear a blue shirt and/or a grey hat, everyone will be talking about you (mostly behind your back) and will know who you are. No need for a name tag.November 15, 2010 4:45 am at 4:45 am #729142YW BandMember
My casual joke is that I’m not stuck in the freezer-I’m still in the fridge!!! It would be a really funny & excellent idea!!! It’s all about yichus anyway:)November 15, 2010 4:51 am at 4:51 am #729143
Ha ha YW Band. Tu B’Shevat time is so funny…you constantly hear “the boys are thawing!!” I actually got a text once of three guys in black hats and jackets photoshopped into an actual freezer!January 17, 2011 7:43 pm at 7:43 pm #729144YummyYummyMember
how abt having a label “JILFSP” which stands for “just in lakewood for shidduchim purpose” 🙂January 17, 2011 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #729145wanderingchanaParticipant
“Hello, My Name Is”
Are you saying they should also have their names on them?January 18, 2011 12:20 am at 12:20 am #729146estherhamalkaMember
