2014 was a year of growth and successful "firsts" for our International Shidduch Group Network! Through the power of our network, we celebrated over sixty engagements!! See our website! Each one is the beginning of a Jewish home built on the foundation of Torah and mitzvot.
Every day we receive urgent emails and phone calls from singles, their parents and shadchanim around the globe asking for help. We're a small non-profit and survive on donations. All of the work carried out by the Shidduch Group Network is possible due to the support and backing of committed people such as yourself. You represent the people who enable us to exist and have become an equal partner in all the mitzvot that we perform on a daily basis.
Let us know that our work is valuable to you. Please support us with an end-of-year tax deductible donation. With a minimum tax exempt donation of $54 you will receive a complimentary copy of Rabbi Leibel Groner’s words of wisdom on shidduchim in our first Navigating Shidduchim booklet.
