I know there’s mixed feelings about putting money into escrow for the NASI project; it’s a very emotional topic. But I also know that a lot of girls in their high twenties and thirties who are participating in NASI are getting many more dates, and the girls and their parents have more people to help them.
Shalom to you–Be in touch with the NASI organization. Their Shadchanim have met dozens of the most wonderful girls to be found. They’re not hiding. They’re really there, and want to meet appropriate young men.
My husband and I were in the same position over 40 years ago. We did a lot of research and learned that Yenta is a derivative from the Italian “Gentilia”, gentle. We named our daughter Adina and all parties concerned were thrilled. Hatzlacha to you.
When my older children were born, someone gave me silver diaper pins engraved with the babies’ initials.(I guess diaper pins are dating me.) Anyway, no one saw the diaper pins, and it was nice to use them. The person who gave me the gift is not chareidi, heimish, etc.; it was just given as a special gift. But nowadays, parents and gift givers should use more discretion and common sense.
Goldenkint, our mothers must have been lanzleit; the expression “nisht aroisrassin yenims’ oigen” was used a lot in our home.
