    The chosson can get a aliya regardless if there’s a “aufruf” in shul or not.

    The main reason for this “trend” is because a lot of the litvishe crowd is not very well to do and prefer not to spend money on a huge kiddush in shul plus a catering hall for both shabbos meals for family and friends if they can do it together on shabbos sheva brachos and split the cost.

    Actually, in the last few years there is a growing trend in Israel, especially by the litvish crowd not to do a aufruf at all and just do a shabbos sheva brachos where both sided join and split the cost togather.

    I think that a majority of the future generation frum people will not be staying in Brooklyn, they’ll be moving mostly to NJ/Monsey/FR & Five Towns.

    The only people who’ll stay are the chassidish crowd who will take over Flatbush (and make it a 2nd BP).

    There are some in the Litvish/Modern crowd who are trying to move into Marine Park and even Mill Basin for the cheaper housing. However, as i mentioned before the future generation will be leaving Brooklyn.

    The Chofetz chaim is accompanied in the video by his son and grandson so that would be very strange if they didn’t recognize their father/grandfather.

    Most of the Shadchanim on that list aren’t current and some of them don’t deal with older singles.
