Bachurim who pre-registered were able to meet with multiple shadchanim. Shadchanim had the opportunity to meet the bachurim face-to-face, understand their needs and what they are looking for, and ensure more frequent and accurate suggestions/matches. FindYourBashert offers a larger and more diverse selection of profiles for matching than a single matchmaker would have. Immediately suggestions were flying.
Computers were available onsite and prior to meeting with shadchanim, bachurim completed the online questionnaire and became members of FindYourBashert. Since January 2014, the International Shidduch Group Network, a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization, has celebrated over 100 shidduchim. “We all began to realize that a database was required to manage the volume of profiles,” explained Schulman. “We faced the reality that without embracing technology we would not be able to achieve our mission of making shidduchim for every single in every corner of the planet where Lubavitchers now dwell.”
“But we were not willing to sacrifice privacy and the wisdom of a personal matchmaker,” added Elana Bergovoy. FindYourBashert assists shadchanim with the traditional searching process, suggests matches for shadchanim to review, and provides tools to make the entire process more efficient. Singles express that FindYourBashert eliminates a lot of the embarrassment because only shadchanim can search the database and profiles are not emailed to large groups that go viral.
The Shidduch Group Network has fused the traditional shidduch process with technology in a professional and personal system customized for Lubavitchers using only Lubavitch shadchanim (and un-shadchanim). Singles have nothing to lose and everything to gain by signing up now! Basic membership is free and includes entering your profile into the FindYourBashert worldwide database and up to two suggestions per week. Gold membership includes two personal matchmakers, who will regularly search the database for matches for you, one-on-one phone interviews, up to ten suggestions per week, the ability to accept suggestions, priority listing for increased exposure, and featured listing to all matchmakers, for as little as $12.95/mo. Upon a successful match, shadchanus gelt shall be paid to the shadchan.
