Sara Palin seems to be the only one who is not allowed to do that.
AZ: I totally agree with you that $20 is not an appropriate ammount to pay a shadchan.
Most shadchanim my family deals with demand alot more… I just wanted to point out to the CR that there are some special individuals out there…
Rachelle: do i know you from somewhere? you seem to be following my posts avidly…
Hashem Is Everywhere: “Bodek, ?? ?? ?? “
?? , no , nay – this is keeping me way to busy – my boss is not gonna be very happy when he finds out about this!
why not ihatenj or ihatejersey or iluvicecream for that matter?
another thing, i doesn’t bother me if you don’t like lakewood – everyone can have their prefference of places they like or dislike.
but to say that you hate a whole segment of of the jewish community – is taking things a bit far…
Oh! thats good news 😉
so what do you really think about lakewood?
AZ – i did not say my Dad would give 20 bucks – I think he’s gonna be in a very expansive mood when i get engaged- and will give alot more than this 😉
This Shadchan is his close friend – and he knows how he works quite well.
Shadchan works for a certain yeshiva, so he knows all the boys and their families.
This is not his only parnassa, so money is not the only deciding factor when he thinks of redding shidduchim.
Obviously families with wealthier means give a larger shadchanus than those that cant.
but he doesn’t demand it…
Hust du gehert? de Yeshive Velt hut a neie systematzia far de Kavve zimmer – hustu es leeb?
How do you report inappropriate posts?
hashem is everywhere: Does that mean that you can only vote “yes”?
if i vote no, does that not get counted as soon as there are 30 other yeses?
that doesn’t seem to fair to me…
and BTW, if the moderators are only occasionally scanning the posts- they might just skip over this one,and then we’ll really be in trouble!?!
Listen to this one: I was discussing a shidduch possibility with my parents when my father says maybe we ask Mr. X about this guy he charges $20. I said, “what? $20 for every shidduch he redds?”
“No, $20 for every shidduch that goes through!”
Basically, he doesn’t have a fee – everyone gives what they can – it seems the minimum is $20….
This Shadchan has made over 200 shidduchim.
This is one person in it Leshem Shamayim!
One good thing about this new system – is that alot of old/new faces are showing up in the CR for the fun.
The downside is that the posts here are sort of lacking in content and meaningful discussion.
Hey Dr. Pepper! Welcome back!
Does this mean that the Crazy Shidduch Stories thread will be revived?
i’ve really been missing your zany stories – they litteraly kept me going;)

MODS: does this count as 3 votes?
I personally know many, many quiet girls that are married quite happily. When looking around at the girls still waiting in my age group -I can honestly say that we are defintely not a group of shy and quiet kids – QUITE THE OPPOSITE (pun intended) we are a great bunch of talented and successful girls to whom Hashem has not yet bestowed the Beracha of marriage.
However, one thing I would recommed – if you are a quiet kid – or even not so quiet and you see the shadchanim are not calling – you gotta take the ball into your court – and start calling and meeting shadchanim – get the word out that you wanna get married! Get out of the house – go to every wedding ur invited to – and parties whatever – you gotta be out there and be seen – so people know you are still around and looking!
Welcome aboard I Rock! Your gonna love this place…
Volvie – Your dream came true 😉
I once heard someone explain the issue of wearing brand name labels as being an issue of Gaavah. The Label gives the wearer a certain (misplaced) sense of status and taste and budget.
I have some friends who will only buy brand names that do not have the label on the outside – some go so far as to acctually remove the label.
sorry JAG! I didn’t have time to read the whole thread, i was just commenting on your last post…
J-a-G: Granted, HE has not done anything wrong.
But what about the rest of his family????
Is he willing to take the blame for his spouse and or children looking at and being in places they would never have even dreamed exsisted had he had a proper filter on his computer.
I know someone that is a type 2 diabetic that sometimes gets so busy that he forgets to eat…by the time he remembers he is usually feeling pretty ill. Does anyone have some good advice on what to do about this?
what happened to the theory that the best conversationalist is a good listener?
don’t tell me it’s just a theory or a definition for the dictionary alone….
Try it out for yourself, and you’ll see it really works!!!
Plaid: When my friend whent to Israel she got this handbook – i think is called the seminary hanbook/guide or something – she showed it to me and it really seemed great – it covered just about everything from packing lists, to gown rentals (for siblings weddings) …. if you are interested in this I can try to find out how you can get hold of this. Wishing you lots of luck in your packing and in your studies next year!
Speaktruth, what happened to you is not such an out of this world occurance. My cousin from Israel had been dating for a while when she told me about a similar story she witnessed when on a date in a hotel lobby. She must’ve been sitting a bit past the entrance, because first she see’s one couple getting a drink and then sitting down. A while later she noticed a second couple get a drink from the bar and then go sit down at another end of the lobby. About 15 minutes later (she must’ve been really bored with her date if she noticed all this…)the second couple walked over to the first and redfaced switched off dating “partners”…
Thanks Yeshiva World – this is really great – i was starting to get bored of Jewish Broadcast…
I was babysitting my neice when my sister called.
My sis spoke to my neice over speaker phone. After talking to her mom for a few minutes, i noticed my neice examining the phone – then she scrunched up her face and said “mommy, are you in the phone?!?”
A teacher in a lakewood school was teaching her class about the Shevatim. When it came to Yissachar and Zevulan she told the class the Zevulan supports Yissachar so that he can learn. One kid raised her hand saying “doesn’t the wife support her husband?”
My sister was telling my two nieces (aged 2 1/2 and 1 1/2) about this week’s Parsha.
She told them about Yetzias Mitzrayim and how all of the Yidden went out of mitzrayim even the little kinderlach and babies…then she started marching around the table singing the yiddish song “azoi zenen de yidden arois fun mitzrayim…” My sis did not think the 1 1/2 year old understood much of what she was talking about. When, all of a sudden she sees her little one taking a doll and putting it in a small knapsack…:)
Areis, you are so right!
“If you want her to wear designer clothes take her shopping and indulge her. If a boy needs a little attention in that area that can be done as well. You can’t change a person from the inside out but you can certainly make adjustments from the outside in.”
i wish my friend would take your advice.
She just said no to 2 dates in row, because the guys glasses and shoes were’nt cool enough… how am i supposed to tell her wihtout hurting her feelings that she’s a pretty simple girl (style wise – not in quality – thats the best of the best!)from an even simpler family and that a shticky boy is probably looking for an equally cool girl???
Dos is “zaier” vichtige fuddem – veil oib men redt yiddish, tracht men yiddish!
Thanks for the warm welcome! Now that i’m back at work, i can start having fun again…just tell me, is there any iced cappuccino around here?
Hi Everyone! i’m a member here for about a month, just realized i forgot to introduce myself…
My name is Bodek (as in Bodek lettuce, cuz thats just about the only thing i eat ;))and i’m looking fwd to getting to know all of you CR gangsters!
When i make rice, i usually just use a ratio of 1:2 for rice:Water, cook it on a high flame till it boils, mix it once and then let it simmer on a really low flame for about 50 minutes or untill its done. This pressure cooking method doesn’t seem like it will be saving too much time… but if it comes out that much better than the old fashioned way, then it’s worth a try 🙂
Thanks Mod 80 – i’m gonna try this!
Haifa Girl: how on earth to you cook rice in a pressure cooker?
Smiley face, I totally feel for you. I too am the last girl in my class…(at least I’m not the last one in my grade!) Just remember – Achrona Achrona Chaviva!
