I had once thought that I would never use the Internet in any way to find my wife. But Hashem clearly showed me that this was the best form of hishtadlus I could do. I very much recommend this site to anyone in the frum community who is struggling in the shidduch parshah. It is an amazing website.

I am impressed by the fact that these two people were able to exercise self-initiative. They searched through a pool of potentially compatible matches and made efforts to communicate (either through confidential in-house e-mails or through a shadchan) with singles they felt were shayach. They did not simply wait for others to make introductions but instead exercised significant hishtadlus by utilizing a frum dating website. ZivugZone.com’s pool of thousands of frum singles worldwide gave them access to singles with whom they otherwise would have no contact.
I highly endorse ZivugZone.com and urge Jewish Press readers to refer singles to this site – and to similar ones. ZivugZone is one of many wonderful, innovative shidduch services. Do a Google search on the keyword “Shidduchim.” Become familiar with all of the amazing shadchanim, dating websites, and community initiatives that address this critical need. Be caring and proactive. Think about the singles you know and make the best effort possible to refer them to these phenomenal resources!
