Agudah Convention update

Preliminary reports:

A few points from the Noviminsker Rebbe's keynote address at the Convention:

  • you have to have rachmunis for the gush kaitif people who were kicked out of their homes, even if you disagree with their ideology
  • we need a new tuition fund for parents

The shidduchim forum got very boisterous and noisy with men and woman yelling at each other arguing whether it's the boys fault or the girls fault... whose picky..., and what not. Sounds very tachlis!

One participant proposed shadchanim get paid (100$) just for setting people up! Where do I sign up!

Re: the comment about getting paid to set up shidduchim, while I don't agree that this will do anything to solve the problem, I have lost a lot of incentive to set people up because, in many cases, it is just too difficult to even get them to check each other out much less actually go on a date. And, quite frankly, the hours about hours that I spend trying to help could be better spent doing many other things including making money.
