From the COLlive inbox: A mother from Florida has a suggestion which will have an "encouraging effect for other parents" dealing with shidduchim.
I have been so happy to see all the new shidduchim that have been happening all over our Lubavitch community.
Do you think it would be a good thing to ask people when they post their Mazal Tovs on COLlive to add who their shadchan was?
It might have an encouraging effect for other parents, and if it was the traditional local shadchan in the individual communities, it can only do good. If they say "friend," that's fine too (and will encourage friends to take action).
If it was a person from Crown Heights, that would be great publicity and would make the other shadchans work a little harder.
Don't forget that until a family does a shidduch they think the shadchanim do nothing for them... But when they finally get to the Ohel, the shadchan becomes the new best friend!
