With Tu B’Av – a holiday renowned for women “dancing in the fields” and meeting a man – falling out on Wednesday, August 5, we’d like to share the following annual letter:

Zivug Campaign 2009: Make A Shidduch Beginning This Tu B’Av

Dear IY”H:

We’d like to present the third annual Zivug Campaign.

This Tu B’Av, a special day on the Jewish calendar for shidduchim, we can all begin making a difference in the lives of two single people. If everyone committed to trying to arrange one shidduch by setting up just one couple, it could make a world of difference.

Often we are so busy that we may forget our friends and family who are still searching for their marriage partner.

Some ideas:1. Make lists of all the single men and women you know and see if any of them could potentially match up. Call a friend and compare lists.

2.  Choose one single friend or family member and try making a few calls on their behalf to shadchanim or other contacts.

3.  Think of the people you dated in the past who are still single, and think of anyone you know who may be appropriate.

We know how busy life gets and how there often isn’t time to think about and work on a shidduch. But beginning on Tu B’Av (or anytime after), please take on this challenge and try sharing this article with anyone you know.

In the merit of this campaign, may our single friends and family members merit meeting their zivug before next Tu B’Av.

Sincerely,Nesya and Dovid Jacob Toronto, Canada zivugcampaign@gmail.com

We peel away one layer after the next, our eyes tear up and it becomes harder and harder to see as we get closer to our innermost insecurities and fears.

Some Mountain Jews believe they are descendents of the Ten Lost Tribes and were exiled to Azerbaijan and Dagestan by Sancheriv.

Yom Tov is about spending time with your family. And while for some families the big once-in-a-lifetime experience is great, for others something low key is the way to go.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

The plan’s goal is to provide supportive housing to 200 individuals with disabilities by the year 2020.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.
