The anonymous relates: "The Choson's Mashpia registered him on ChabadMatch as an Hishtadlus in finding a Shidduch, and I found his details on the site. I spoke to his Mashpia and suggested a girl for him. The Bochur traveled to Israel, spent 2 weeks in quarantine, went out, but it didn't work out. With two days left before his return, I suggested a match that looked relevant, they went out and the next day the Bochur returned home. They continued dating on Zoom, and then the Kallah traveled to the Choson to continue dating. Boruch Hashem it worked out and they got engaged!"
Shandel Blassberg relates: "I made a Shidduch on ChabadMatch four years ago. The husband encouraged his friend to register on ChabadMatch and that's how I got to know him a year and a half ago. Boruch Hashem through this introduction I was able to make his Shidduch!"
Rus Kinn relates: "With great kindness from the One Above, two days after the girl signed up with ChabadMatch I suggested her to a bachur who contacted me earlier that same month. They both agreed that it seemed a good likely match and after looking into the idea more closely decided to meet. Due to some corona related hiccups they finally met about two months later, and after meeting several times they decided to get engaged!"
Another successful Shidduch from the Meet Shadchanim Even at this year's Kinus HaShluchos! Chumy was a Shadchan at the event, met a mother, and 7 months later an engagement is celebrated!
Miriam Schmuckler relates: "I saw Moshe's resume and thought of someone I knew. She did a zoom with him (she was in Crown Heights) and realized she couldn't focus on Shidduchim then, because she was traveling. She thought of a friend for Moshe, who actually lived in California and could date Moshe properly. B"h i set them up and it went well!"
Chani Raksin relates: "I saw a new profile on the site and arranged to meet the girl. After meeting the girl I knew exactly what she was looking for and when the boy's mother called me I knew they would be a great match. They started out on the phone, then zoom, and after arranging logistic and two weeks of quarantine they were able to meet and shortly thereafter get engaged!"
Yehudis Abramowitz relates: "I met Ben when he was a student at Mayanot Yeshiva in Yerushalayim. I was impressed by his good Midos and we stayed in touch after he went back to the US and enrolled in a Master's Program in Social Work. One of the daily ChabadMatch profiles appeared with Rachael's information. She seemed like just the right girl for him. After sharing the profiles and arranging for the the couple to meet, I found it such a pleasure working with each of them. Each one was so sensitive to the feelings of the other. Both baalei teshuva, yet they worked with me and with each other in the most tzniusdik fashion. B"H, the shidduch has been brought to its happy conclusion. Their simcha is my simcha!"
Noach new the Chosson from his hometown, Atlanta. He found the European Kallah's profile, on ChabadMatch and was able to compare both of their profiles, and Boruch Hashem they matched and got engaged!
The first successful engagement for Mayanot Connects!! The Kallah found a profile of interest, and reached out to Shadchan Chana Glicken to set them up!
"I saw the Kallah's profile on ChabadMatch and set her up with the Choson, relates Shadchan Miriam Schmuckler. "Less than one month from registering her profile, she got engaged!"
The Choson, Kalah, Shadchan, and a friend of the Kallah that suggested the Shidduch are all from Bnei Brak. The profiles of the Choson and Kallah on ChabadMatch helped each side review the suggestion, and Boruch Hashem they got engaged!
"The Kallah was proactive and found a profile she was interested in on the site," relates Moshe Raichman. "I was listed as a Shadchan on the Bochur's profile so she contacted me for more information. I reached out to the Bochur and they decided to go out. As soon as they met there was immediate chemistry, and less than two week later they got engaged!"
The automated suggestion feature does it again!!! Shadchan Shandel Blassberg suggested the Shidduch and they decided not to pursue it. Later, the mother of the Kallah received the suggestion by email via the ChabadMatch automated suggestion feature and decided to revisit the suggestion. She reached out to Shandel Blassberg who put together the Shidduch!
Another Success Story from our Meet Shadchanim Event in Kfar Chabad! The Choson met with Rinat Miriam at the event. Rinat shared the details of the Bochur with Moran Amfromayov, who put together the successful Shidduch!
Shadchan Dasi Kramer relates: "With this Shidduch I knew about the families beforehand, but having the ability to see full profiles describing both singles helped me evaluate and make the Shidduch."
Both the Choson and Kallah joined the site on the weekend after Pesach. They are both from Netanya but did not know of each other. The Kallah reached out to Shadchan Rachel Gov Ari, who ran a search on ChabadMatch and found the Choson. Within a few weeks of registering they got engaged!
The family was looking into a limited profile for a Shidduch. The full information on the ChabadMatch profile helped them evaluate the opportunity properly and Boruch Hashem they got successfully engaged!
Less than three months after our 1st Meet Shadchanim Event in Kfar Chabad, a couple has got engaged! Malka Cohen set them up after meeting the Bochur at the event!
Shadchan Shandel Blasberg relates: "I got to know the Choson a few years ago when he registered on ChabadMatch. I would occasionally send him suggestions. About 5 months ago I decided to invite him for Yom Tov and Shabbos. Shortly afterward, I also interviewed him. This personal contact was instrumental in giving him a suggestion that was really up his alley. The relationship started with the Bochur's profile on the site, the database is such a critical tool. Since we see so many names on the site, it's essential to personally connect with the single. I prefer reaching out on WhatsApp, which I find more personal than an email. A Shabbos invite is usually appreciated especially if they can bring along friends. Often this leads to an interview which results in better, on-target suggestions."
Shadchan Leah Perl relates: "I received an automated suggestion for a Bochur that looked interesting. I forwarded it to Toby Lieder asking to run the idea by them, and they weren't interested. Toby looked at the idea and had another idea which Boruch Hashem worked!"
Shortly after registering her profile, the Kallah saw the profile of the Choson on ChabadMatch and was interested. After doing research they approached the Shadchan who helped facilitate and they quickly got engaged!
Shadchan Rachel Smoller relates: "The Choson reached out to me about two years ago through Chabadmatch. The Kallah's Shlucha Rivky Freidman is always brainstorming about her Baal Teshuvah girls from her community with me. This is the second Shidduch we made together. Great example of how Shluchos can help their newly Frum singles navigate the Shidduch process!"
Shadchan Miri Farro relates: "I met the mother of the Kallah with her daughter last year at the Meet Shadchanim Event, and recently saw a profile on ChabadMatch that looked like a good potential match. Being able to meet the single in person at the Meet Shadchanim Event and having his profile in front of me made it a smooth process to setup and Boruch Hashem they are now engaged!"
Shadchan Rus Kinn relates: "With Hashem's great kindness, a few months after being contacted by the Bachur and speaking with him, the day the Kallah signed up on ChabadMatch, she seemed from her profile to be just what he was looking for, and Baruch HaShem, she was! They met for a few weeks and B"H got engaged!" The Kallah got engaged less than a month from when she registered her profile!
Shadchan Rus Kinn relates: "Soon after I saw the Bochur's profile on ChabadMatch, a certain young lady asked for help to find her match. With Hashem's great help, I set them up, and after about three weeks they got engaged!"
Shadchan Yehudis Abramowitz relates: "A few months ago I traveled from Eretz Yisroel to visit my mother in NY for her 101st birthday, ke"h. While there, I met a lovely young woman who was seeking her Bashert. When I returned to Israel, I opened my email and there was a ChabadMatch profile of a Bochur from an out-of-town family that my youngest daughter had boarded with when she was in high school. This Bochur was probably the baby in the family at the time! Feeling a sense of connection and responsibility, I read his information with interest and realized he might just be the right Shidduch for the lovely young woman in New York. The rest is history!"
Shadchan Daliah Kurtzweil relates: "I saw the Bochur's profile on ChabadMatch. I really liked what he wrote, and started thinking who I could set him up with. I started sending his mother suggestions, and she liked the Kallah's profile right away. It took a few months until the Shidduch actually took place as the Bochur had to fly to Israel. We went through a wonderful journey together, on Friday they went to the Ohel and the rest is history. As I can see already, we'll have lots of Chassidishe Nachas Be'ezras Hashem!"
The mother of the Bochur saw an interesting profile on the site, and reached out to Shadchan Libby Chein who setup the Shidduch!
Shadchan Rachel Gov-Ari relates: "When the Bochur registered on ChabadMatch, I reached out to him to make a suggestion. We stayed in touch, and when he told me he was coming to Israel, I worked to set him up with a girl who looked like a match. Boruch Hashem they went out and got engaged!"
Shadchan Rus Kinn relates: "The Chabadmatch member I suggested a Shidduch to told a friend that the boy may be good for their daughter. The mother contacted me to see if they were interested in the idea. Both sides did research and agreed to the match. They met, and about four weeks later got engaged!"
Shadchan Cyna Reisman relates: "After seeing the Bochur’s profile, I thought of the Kallah immediately. The profile's thorough information is so helpful in checking important information for compatibility. And compatible they are!!!"
Shadchan Shandel Blasberg relates: "I knew both singles for some time. The Bochur contacted me and I did a search for him on ChabadMatch. The Kallah looked like a good match as I knew of her, and Boruch Hashem it worked!"
Shadchan Moshe Raichman relates: "A single registered on the site and after a week mentioned to me that she hadn't heard from any Shadchan yet. I asked her to search the database to see if there was a profile of interest. She expressed interest in someone who by Hashgacha Pratis I knew, and who expressed interest in her as well. Since they were in the USA and I'm in Israel, her friend served as a go between and Boruch Hashem within 2 months of her registering, they became engaged!"
Shadchan Rus Kinn relates: "After a friend's daughter signed up to ChabadMatch, I started working with her to help find her bashert for some time, she approached me with the BashertNow profile of a bachur and asked me to proceed to make the match, and with the tremendous kindness from Above, it worked out wonderfully."
Shadchan Shandel Blassberg relates: "I saw the Chosson's profile when he registered and reached out to him. Two years later when he moved to Crown Heights, I had the chance to meet him in person. I ran a search for him on ChabadMatch and found a great potential match. As soon as they met, they knew they were for each other. Just a few months after moving to the USA, after living several years in Israel, the Choson already became engaged!"
Shadchan Shandel Blassberg relates: "I saw the Kallah's profile and when I looked for a match on ChabadMatch I saw a boy who I had known previously from 12 years ago when I lived in Jerusalem. It looked like a great match and Boruch Hashem they got engaged!"
Shadchan Sorah Yarmush met a Bochur at the ChabadMatch Gimel Tamuz event. She recently had a suggestion for him. They went out and Boruch Hashem got engaged!
Shadchan Mendi Hasan relates: "I reached out to the Kallah after seeing her profile on Chabadmatch. After some time of searching for her, I came across another profile on Chabadmatch that looked like it was compatible. They both were interested, but since they were far apart, they first spoke on the phone three times. After receiving a Bracha in Igros, she traveled to Israel to meet the Choson, and after 5 dates they got engaged!
Shadchan Mendi Hasan relates: "The bochur I knew from Yeshiva in Buenos Aires. After joining ChabadMatch I noticed his profile on the site, I didn't know he was looking for a Shidduch. I immediately made contact with him, and after a few months of doing searches, found the right girl. After 4 dates, they got engaged!"
Shadchan Chani Raksin relates: "As soon as I saw the Kalah's profile on ChabadMatch several months ago, I immediately thought of the Choson who has been in touch with me for the past year. Boruch Hashem after several months of dating, on this auspicious day, it's official!"
Shadchan Cyna Reisman relates: "The Kallah was the sister of a previous Shidduch I made. The Chosson was the best friend of another Bochur I had setup. Reviewing their ChabadMatch profiles helped evaluate the proposal, and Boruch Hashem they are engaged!"
Sorah Yarmush relates: "I met a girl at the ChabadMatch Shadchanim event in Shevat. Shortly thereafter I met a Bochur who seemed like a good match. They went out, and Boruch Hashem got engaged!"
Rus Kinn relates: "The Kallah's side reached out to enquire about one of the ChabadMatch singles that I had been working with. Although the two did not end up meeting, though this process I got to know the young lady, and not long afterwards I was approached by someone who was looking to get married. The thought came to me that they'd probably be a good match, and they were!"
The Shadchan saw two compatible profiles on the site, reached out to the Bochur to see if there was interest and relayed to the Kallah. They got in touch, and BH got engaged!
Chana Calmenson relates: "A friend of mine told me about a great boy, I called up the boy's mother and she told me about her son. She mentioned that she also had a daughter in Shidduchim. The next day I received a phone call from a mother who had just registered her son on ChabadMatch and reached out to me as a Shadchan on the site. She described her son to me and I immediately thought of this girl." BH, less than 3 weeks from registering on the site, they are engaged!
The father of the Kallah relates: "Her profile on ChabadMatch introduced us to an amazing Shadchan, Gitel Chaya Fogel. Mrs. Fogel saw her profile and thought of an idea for her. That idea didn’t work out but she stayed with us and ultimately came up with the idea that became her Shidduch. Thank you!"
Shadchan Leah Lipszyc relates: "After dating several other girls, the Bochur told me 'I don't feel those girls were what I'm looking for. I need a girl who's more _____." I typed in the word on the ChabadMatch search page, together with age, height.... and two girls came up. The first one is now his Kallah!
Shadchan Chaya Cohen relates: "One evening, the mother of the Kallah called to tell me about her daughter and her family, and she mentioned to me how much they love Lubavitch. The next day the bochur's profile came out on ChabadMatch and I immediately saw a connection!"
The Impact of Hishtadlus! Shadchan Atara Guez relates: "A girl was desperate because there were no suitable suggestions for her. I told her mother that she has to make a bigger Hishtadlus, she has to be known to all the Shadchanim in the world. The parents weren’t ready to publish her profile on the web, but setup a profile which I sent to my list of Shadchanim. Moshe Raichman also received her profile, and suggested to publish her profile on Chabadmatch. I asked and this time she agreed to publish it. A few days after, the idea of her Chatan came and they got engaged!"
Shadchan Shandel Blassberg relates: "The mother of the Kallah did a search on ChabadMatch and saw the Choson's profile. She asked her daughter to do a search and the same profile came up. They reached out to me, and once the bochur became available, they went out and it was a success!"
Rivka Bernath relates: "I saw the Kallah's profile on ChabadMatch, and it looked like a good match for my son. I had Chaya Lando handle the Shidduch, which BH was successful."
Shadchan Eliezer Zalmanov relates: "I was working with the Bochur, I ran a search on ChabadMatch and came up with the girl's profile. They both were interested and Boruch Hashem it led to an engagement!"
Shadchan Rus Kinn relates: "After having seen the Bochur's profile on ChabadMatch, I sent it to a parent I've been working with, on the 24th of Teves of this year. The girl's side was interested but the Bochur's side felt the young lady was unsuitable and asked for further ideas. After hearing from them more of what they were looking for, I sent them one idea which seemed likely, but the logistics weren't able to be worked out, so it wasn't taken further. On the 24th of Nissan the Bochur's family approached me again to ask me to re-start the search for a Shidduch for their son. I called the Bochur's Mother to hear about her son and to understand firsthand from her what exactly they feel their son needs, which led me to suggest the young lady. They met after many inquiries, and on the 24th of Sivan the engagement became official!"
Shadchan Hirsh Dlinn relates: "We saw the Bochur's profile when he registered on Chabadmatch, it looked like a match for our daughter, and Boruch Hashem it worked out!"

Shadchan Rus Kinn relates: "I saw the Kallah's profile on Chabadmatch and set her up with someone who was unsuitable, but through that experience came to understand what she was seeking. When I interviewed the Bochur who seemed just the type for her, I suggested the match and Boruch Hashem they met and got engaged!"
Shadchan Chani Raksin relates: "I was working with a girl from ChabadMatch for a while. After Purim, a mother whose son just started with Shidduchim called me. I thought of this girl immediately and how suitable she was. Boruch Hashem it went well and ended in a an engagement!"
Shadchan Chani Raksin relates: "I was working with the girl's mother for one a year. Recently, her resume went on ChabadMatch with more detailed information and I got a better feeling of what boy she needs. There was a boy who I thought of, I called his uncle for more information, and felt it was very suitable. BH it ended in an engagement!"
Shadchan Atarah Guez relates: "The girl's sister reached out to me to check if I had any ideas for her sister. I did a search on ChabadMatch and found one suggestion that looked like it could match, he was the perfect match! After more investigation, I found that they had a lot of similarities, and BH got engaged."
Shadchan Yocheved Miller relates: "I like to cross reference when possible, and I always look for the potential match on ChabadMatch if I head about them from any source. The additional information on the ChabadMatch profile of the boy helped put this Shidduch together!"
Shadchan Chani Raksin relates: "I saw a boy's resume the day it was posted on ChabadMatch 8 weeks ago. It sent a flash in my mind for a girl whose family I have been working with for a while. I immediately got more info from the Bochur's mom to confirm my impression and check his availability. I then presented the suggestion to both sides. The girl was very happy after the 1st date, noting that he was different to the other boys she was setup with, and similar to her brother that she looked up to. He was worried about getting engaged to the first girl he went out with. I walked them gently through it, till Boruch Hashem the engagement!
Shadchan Cyna Reisman relates: "I had been working with the Choson for more than a year, when in September I saw a new girl's profile from Australia on ChabadMatch. I looked at the profile and had a really good feeling about it for him. I'm very particular about what I send out, and after reading the full profile, it really looked like it could match. Boruch Hashem after several months, they are engaged!"
Shadchan Rus Kinn relates: "The day the profile came through to me on ChabadMatch something about it caught my eye. Whenever this happens, I try to make a point to give them a call, interview them, and 'keep them on my books', and this is what I did. One thing led to another, and within the month (to the very day), they were engaged!"
Shadchan Shandel Blassberg relates: "I was planning a trip to Florida to visit my parents, and did a search on ChabadMatch of singles in Florida to arrange to meet while I was there. I didn't get a chance to meet the Kallah, but we began communication. She eventually moved to Crown Heights and after meeting her in person I introduced her to the Choson, and Boruch Hashem they got engaged!"
The Kallah saw a profile that was of interest, and reached out to a relative to do research. The Choson flew in from Israel. Gavriel Avichzer served as a Shadchan, leading to the engagement!
A Shadchan saw a new profile on the site that looked like a match for her daughter. Within 6 weeks of the bochur registering, her daughter became enagaged to him!
The Kallah did a search and was interested in the Choson's profile. He was not available at the time. After some time, when he became available, the Shidduch was setup and worked!
Chany Scheiner called Leah Namdar to see if she had any ideas for a Bochur that she was working with. Mrs. Namdar checked out his profiile on ChabadMatch and suggested a girl that looked like a good match. Being able to compare both ChabadMatch profiles made the process much easier for both sides, and Boruch Hashem the Shidduch was a success!
Shadchan Shandel Blassberg relates: "There was a woman who was divorced with children and knew it was time to move on and begin anew. The woman registered on ChabadMatch and her Shlucha, who was assisting her, gave me a call after browsing the site. After a long conversation about who she is and what she is looking for, it became clear that there was a man on the site who matched her. The Shlucha was really happy with the reference calling, it turned out that there were people who knew them both. The Shidduch took off, I bless every couple and Shadchan with all the elements this Shidduch had: Ahavas Yisroel, loving and caring Shluchim, dedicated Mashpiim, and two singles who were committed to both the dating process and goal."
The Chosson's family relates: "An automated suggestion by ChabadMatch was sent by Shadchana Atara Guez to us. At the time we were busy with another suggestion. After a few weeks we looked back at it, and being that one of the Kallah's references was a relative of ours, we continued through her. Boruch Hashem they got engaged thereafter."
Shadchan Rivky Torrenheim relates: "An Israeli Shliach in Sydney, Rabbi Alon Hezi, gave my brother a dollar of the Rebbe to keep until he finds his Shidduch. I had been very busy with work and felt sad about the last suggestion my brother received. I was on the train coming home from work, and started reading my emails and was looking through new ChabadMatch profiles that had arrived. One looked very interesting, I read the whole profile carefully. As I was reading it, I right away felt that this is definitely the girl for my brother. The way she wrote made it sound as if my brother was writing, and she was exactly what my brother was looking for. I looked at the picture again and knew this girl was for my brother. Hashem helped overcome obstacles including: language, time difference, distance, and culture. The Kallah, who was living in Israel and whose parents were in France, had signed up on ChabadMatch just a few days prior. She replied that she was interested and would discuss it with her parents. The Kallah came to New York, and after three dates, they came to our house to ask for my mother's bracha for the engagement! After the engagement we noticed, that the date the Kallah wrote back after reading my brother's profile was the same Hebrew date that the Rebbe had given the dollar to the Rabbi Alon Hezi!"
Shadchan Toby Lieder relates: "I'm so amazed at the most incredible Shidduch that was just made! This is a Shidduch MADE BY A COMPUTER! I recently started receiving suggestions by email via the automated suggestion feature on ChabadMatch. To actually see the results with my own eyes actually happening is incredible. I got an email from ChabadMatch a month ago, and for the first time, it had two profiles side by side instead of one. I looked it and said: Huh? Then I read that these two individuals were matched up automatically by a computer and not even a human! I thought, Ok, I'll try, what do I have to lose? I forwarded the email to the girl's mom. She wrote back that her husband knows the father, and they like the idea, and want to look into him. She's from Australia and he's from Canada, and the computer thinks it's good. They went out and it WORKED! I was the Shadchan in between the dates to keep encouraging and assisting, but Hashem is the real Shadchan here!! In the beginning when I got the email, I almost dismissed it, and thought to myself: Ye Sure... Then I thought, how have I got the right to dismiss an idea and ignore it? I learned from this that when a suggestion comes to us, it's Hashgocha Protis, and we shouldn't take suggestions lightly."
Shadchan Chaya Davidson relates: "I saw the Bochur's profile on ChabadMatch, it described him as coming from a Yiddish speaking home who both works and keeps active sedarim. He sounded like a great match for a girl I knew. Boruch Hashem, it worked out!"
Shadchan Rachel Gov-Ari relates: "The Kallah got in touch with me after she signed up on ChabadMatch. I was waiting quite some time to find the right suggestion for her. Something came up that looked like a potential match, and Boruch Hashem it worked out!"
Shadchan Shandel Blassberg relates: "Over 4 years ago, I came across the Chosson's profile on ChabadMatch....I reached out to him... we emailed, spoke on the phone, and during one of his visits to Crown Heights from LA, we met. Over the years we stayed in touch. Six months ago, a Shaliach contacted me about a family in his community who had grown tremendously in their Yiddishkeit, and their daughter was now ready for Shidduchim. Although I had seen her profile on ChabadMatch, no ideas had yet come to mind. During my conversation with the Shaliach, we realized I would be visiting the city where she was currently living, and we decided to set up an interview. We were going to Boston to visit our children who recently moved there on Shlichus. During the interview, I jotted down several names that seemed shayach. The next morning, I sat down at my computer ready to begin working on Shidduchim, first I like to search the newest profiles... I opened a BashertNow profile and got a jolt...the Chosson had posted a new picture and I was staring at a male version of the woman that I had met the night before. They looked so similar, the coloring of their eyes and hair was the same and then the light bulb went on.... they had a whole lot more in common. Within 2 weeks this shidduch was happening!"
The mother of the Chosson relates: "Boruch Hashem, we can report another success story! My son became a Chosson this week. I filled out a profile for him a little while ago. The next morning, I got a call from a Shadchan. He stuck with us until he found the right Shidduch for our son, Boruch Hashem. Thank you for posting it on Shluchos network so we could make use of this special service when we needed it."
Shadchan Akiva Perl relates: "I was doing a search of the database for a girl, and after viewing a profile on ChabadMatch of a bochur, it seemed clear that they could match. Boruch Hashem they are now engaged."
Shadchan Leah Namdar relates: "The mother of the Bochur called, asking for an idea. I browsed ShluchimMatch and found a girl's name that seemed really Shayach. I sent it to the mother, and after a few meetings, through Hashem's great kindness, there is a Mazal Tov! The beauty of the ChabadMatch & ShluchimMatch system is that it completely eliminates the waiting time and holdup that ensues over resumé exchanging. All the info is there, and the research can be done without any delay or discomfort."
Shadchan Moishe Raitman relates: "ChabadMatch database was instrumental in providing detailed information about both individuals to evaluate common interests, personalities and hashkafa standards, and provided excellent references for checking."
Shadchan Rus Kinn relates: "With great help from Above, after seeing the young lady's profile on ShluchimMatch, I suggested her to someone who had been in touch with me through ChabadMatch. The match was unsuitable, but because of his effusive praise for the girl's family and character, she was on my mind. When a new ShluchimMatch profile came through, of a bachur who had been here in Manchester for Yeshiva and had run programs that my boys took part in, knowing his character traits, I thought it may well be a match. And it was!"
Shadchan Rachel Babai relates: "The Chosson, from Israel and in his 40s, signed up on ChabadMatch in Elul, and I started looking for a match. After a few months, I met a woman who seemed to be a good fit, and Boruch Hashem it worked out."
Shadchan Sara Shollar relates: "The Chosson saw a profile on ChabadMatch that looked of interest, and contacted me for more info. I reached out to the girl, who was interested as well. They went out, and got engaged!"
Shadchan Atarah Guez relates: "I saw the Chosson's profile on ChabadMatch when he signed up. I knew of him previously, but after seeing his profile I came up with an idea, which worked!"
Shadchan Atarah Guez relates: "I saw the Kallah's profile on ChabadMatch and wanted to know more about her, so I spoke to her. Two weeks later, the Chosson approached me asking for a Shidduch and I suggested her. Boruch Hashem it worked out!"
Shadchan Toby Lieder relates: "I received a ChabadMatch profile via email of a sweet lovely girl and thought of a boy that matched her requirements. I arranged a Skype interview with the girl and realized how much they match. Sure enough, they got engaged!"
Shadchan Sukie Rabin relates: "I came across the Chosson's profile a couple of years ago and my initial idea didn't work. Two years later I matched him with another ChabadMatch profile of a girl that I know. With the help of Shadchan Mrs. Fraida Estrin we successfully introduced them, and a few weeks later they were engaged!"
Shadchan Rachel Gov-Ari relates: "I met the Bochur after he submitted a Chabdadmatch profile several years ago. The mother of the Kallah approached me after submitting a profile on ShluchimMatch. I suggested the Chosson, and they agreed to go out based on my recommendation, and got engaged shortly thereafter."
Shadchan Shandel Blassberg relates: "The Chosson's mom had been going through the profiles on ChabadMatch, and she sent me several numbers for the profiles that she wanted me to forward to her, and it was clear that one was more suitable. It went just like we want them all to go .....the mother made her phone calls, I approached the Kallah's parents, it went smoothly. Thank you for providing the medium to make this happen!"
Shadchan Leah Lipszyc relates: "I met the Chosson quite a number of years ago, via ChabadMatch. We spoke many times on the phone at length, and I met him. We looked into various possibilities, but nothing was right. About 10 months ago I saw the Kallah's profile on Bashert Now. I spoke to her mother often, and met the girl. I suggested her to the Bochur. First one was busy, then the other...Finally they were both able to meet, Boruch Hashem, culminating with a Mazal Tov!"
Shortly after registering on the site, the Chosson saw a profile he was interested in and reached out to a Shadchan on the site to review it. While he was waiting to hear back, another Shadchan reached out to him with the same suggestion. Having seen the profile, he immediately agreed, they went out, and shortly thereafter got engaged!
Shadchan Rus Kinn relates: "A new ChabadMatch profile came through on the 2nd day of Chanukah, and the thought came to me to find out whether a certain bochur who had been on my shortlist was available and interested. They were immediately interested, the logistics were worked out.

Once they met, from the start, it was clear to both of them that this was it, and they were ready to get engaged after three to four dates.

By Hashgocho Pratis, that week her parents happened to be flying into the same city, so the Chosson got to meet her parents at the same time. It is always very special when two people who were once previously married get a second chance. Mazal Tov!"
He writes: "The Kallah setup a profile and contacted me regarding a bochur on ChabadMatch that interested her. When this one and a couple of others were not suitable, I sent her more information regarding a few other Bochurim. One of the ones that interested her was the Chosson.

We did our due diligence and by proceeding with a tremendous amount of energy and input, we BH have a L'chaim to celebrate!"
She writes: "The boy's family called me privately. I met the girl through her profile on the site. The girl's mother initally rejected the boy's profile, thinking he was too young.

He writes: "I have a strong connection with the Chosson's family and I had made a Shidduch for his older brother.

They were separated by a long distance as he was working on shlichus in LA and she was working in NY. Boruch Hashem they overcame all the distances, clarified their goals in life and got engaged. They are special people, very devoted to the Rebbe, who were patiently waiting for the right person to come. May we always only share simchos!"
She writes: "As the shadchanit, I sent the girl's resume to the bachur. He looked at it and thought, "Do I want a girl who climbs mountains in Japan?" I shared the bachur's profile with the girl. She said, "Do I want a private eye who will snoop around the house and find my private stash of chocolate chip cookies?" It took a bit of convincing, but they finally got together! The real picture is worth a thousand words.
There was incredible Hashgacha Pratis in how this shidduch was made. I met the bochur through his profile and was in touch with him for several years.

While the passport agency did its work, the couple spoke on the phone and finally met at a location between the two cities. The rest is history!"
She relates: "I knew both the Chosson and Kallah before seeing their profiles on ChabadMatch. When I did a search and saw both profiles, I realized they could match and successfully set them up."
He writes: "This was my first Shidduch using ChabadMatch.com. I searched the ChabadMatch profiles using criteria specific to my friend's requirements. I reviewed the profiles, made a few phone calls, and arranged a date. Hashem took care of the rest, and the couple announced their engagement!"
She writes: "A girl I was working with saw a profile on ChabadMatch that caught her attention, and sent it to me. I contacted the boy who had just signed up and was not available at the time. I called him back two months later, he was ready, flew to the East Coast, dated, and a match was made in heaven and earth! They are perfect for each other!"
She writes: "The Kallah's family is on Shlichus in Israel and she is a friend of a friend. I found the Chosson's profile on ChabadMatch, an American learning in Israel. They soon became engaged!"

The Shadchan saw the Kallah's profile on the site and set her up with someone she knew.

The most recent was Rosh Chodesh Shevat between a bochur who was listed on ChabadMatch and a girl. Both had approached me through ChabadMatch and BH we now have reason to celebrate. For anyone reading these success stories and wondering if they should post their profiles online, there is no doubt, by being proactive and allowing many others, including shadchanim and singles to view one's profile, the chances of finding one's zivug is tremendously increased."

Sara describes: "A request from an old and dear friend for help in finding a shidduch for her daughter prompted a visit to my favorite site where a name, with the help of the filters, quickly popped up. The calls were made, the meetings took place, and the engagement was celebrated."
The shidduch of the chosson's parents was one of the earliest for the shadchan. The mother of the kallah, a shlucha (and former high school friend and sem-mate of the shadchan's eldest daughter), had no sooner posted her daughter's profile when she received an e-mail from the shadchan, followed by her future son-in-law's information. And now, the future shluchim are busy with chassanah preparations.
Having met and interviewed the future choson, the shadchan went to ChabadMatch to see who might match his needs. One young lady (whose profile had recently been added) whom she knew stood out from the others. The suggestion was made, research conducted, and the meeting took place. The result: a beautiful couple about to establish a binyan adei ad.

It was so much easier because the boy's information and references were on hand on the ChabadMatch sight."
She writes: "Helping my Seminary students find shidduchim is something that gives me great pleasure. Within a short time of signing up to ChabadMatch I was Boruch Hashem able to to arrange a shidduch for my student. It was so much easier because the boys' reference and shliach was a shlucha who was in seminary years ago - so we were able to work it out very smoothly."
This success story is a very unusual one. In the case of both singles, I (the Shadchan) was connected to their families. I had met each of them in their homes or at family simchas and considered who I might know to be appropriate. When one of them came to Eretz Yisroel from the U.S. for shidduch purposes, I got involved. The easy access of information and references on the ChabadMatch website were extremely helpful in putting ideas together. When I saw both singles on the site, I immediately was able to try out the option and arrange their meeting. I personally find the pictures to be a helpful addition in getting a sense of compatibility. B'soros Tovos!
