A few weeks ago, Labish & Elana Bergovoy were in LA where Labish spoke to men and women of the community at the Kollel on "Parting the Red Sea." Elana met afterwards with the ladies to hear their concerns and give encouragement regarding shidduch issues. The event was organized by the LA Shidduch Group. The Bergovoys also spoke about shidduchim to people at Rav Shusterman's shul in Beverly Hills where they were for Shabbos.
Right afterwards, Ari Roth of LA became a chassan.
Shortly thereafter, Rabbi Shusterman's son, Yaakov, got engaged to Mushky Abend of LA.
Next , an LA girl, Aidle Raigorodsky, became a kallah.
The daughter of Miriam Feiner---who co-directs the LA shidduch group---Bracha, becamer a kallah before Shabbos.
On YomTov, many women got together at Rabbi Raichik's shul, said heartfelt Tehillim , and mentioned the names of singles in the community, giving them brachos to meet their zivugim, followed by, "Amen!" to each name.
Right after Yom Tov the engagement of Devorah Leah Lubin (daughter of Esther Mindel Overlander, who just started a Shidduch Group in Golders Green, London) was announced.
Just today, Mushka Kaplan from LA became a kallah, and a boy & girl from LA got engaged to one another!
We applaud the women of the Los Angeles community who exemplify Ahavas Yisroel and achdus.
And we encourage everyone to do the same in their communities:
Get together this Shabbos to say Tehillim, learn, make l'chaims for the singles in your midst needing shidduchim, followed by, "Amen!" Have a simcha dance and let the "SIMCHA PORETZ GEDER!"
And please remember to let us know your good news when it happens!
Elana and Dvora
