Corzine dating a jew

Star-Ledger:

Sharon Elghanayan is two years older than the tall, bearded guy squeezed in beside her at a Hoboken bistro, but she looks much younger than her man.
She's a psychotherapist from Manhattan's Upper East Side. He's a businessman-turned-politician from Jersey.
She runs and kickboxes for exercise. He just spent a year getting punched and kicked in a bruising campaign for governor.
She still cooks and cleans and sews the way she learned growing up in Newark even though she doesn't have to. And she is somebody you probably will be seeing a lot more of.
She is Sharon Elghanayan, Jon Corzine's significant other.
A stranger to most, Elghanayan (pronounced: el-GA-na-yen) has dated Corzine for more than a year, since before he announced his candidacy.
Spend an evening with the couple and it's clear this self-proclaimed "ultimate Jewish mother" has captured the attention of the 58-year-old governor-elect.
"We're not hiding and we're not trying to flaunt," Corzine said during one of the couple's quiet, late dinners last week.
"Look, I think he's the greatest thing since sliced bread," Elghanayan said. She is, she says, "somebody who's crazy about him." ...

Looks like the shidduch problem is spreading to the non jewish world as well. Maybe we should share with the "outside velt" some of the takonos from the convention. What do you think?

I have a great Shidduch for you!


This happens to me all the time. Someone will come over to me and "red" me "great" "attractive" girl etc. I think you get the drift. When I ask if (s)he has seen the girl (or a picture of her) the inevitible response is no.

Now frankly, this is arguably chutzpa and at a minimum a total lack of consideration. Basically, what I am being asked is to gamble my emotions, energy, time (and some money) so that this person may be a "winner" and be able to say that (s)he made a shiduch (and then get a brokerage fee a/k/a "shadchanuus") to boot.

If you you don't know how to cook, you don't belong in the kitchen. If you're not a doctor, you shouldn't have a medical office. If you're not a lawyer, you shouldn't hang out a shingle. AND IF YOU ARE NOT A SHADCHAN, DON"T ACT AS ONE !!!!
