Im looking for a shadchan that is open minded and knows guys that are from out of town with an out of town mentality but yet deals with frum people who learn and work at the same time. I also dont believe in this business where they charge thousands of dollars!!! do these people think that people are growing money in the garden??? I want someone that will treat a shidduch as a shidduch and not a buisness deal. If anyone has names and phone numbers that would be great.
anyone know of a not pricy shadchan(15 posts)
I dont get it. Do they sell shadchanim in the local hypermarket? I guess you get what you pay for!
If the famous saying "Pay peanuts and you'll get monkeys" is true, I would be put off a cheap shadchan. Who wants to marry a monkey? (unless you shtam from darwin!)
In my times, you didnt choose a shadchan. The guy who succeeds in suggesting the right match, gets paid for his/her services. It wasnt something you could choose.
yaff80: What a sensitive response! Nice.
It just so happens that Meir Applebaum of Torah tapes has made about 100 more difficult shidduchim, and has always refused pay. There are others as well.
(This doesn't detract from the wonderful shadchonim who do it for the Mitzvah, but take their fair pay)
why not call shadchanim from out of town places, connected to out of town yeshivos where the guys also take college classes?
yaff80, you obviously haven't ever been in the parsha or not in it for long. A little sensitivity could take you far in life.
My suggestion would be to make really good friends (who truly care about you and) whose husbands have good friends that they can set you up with.
R'Apflebaum made my daughter's shidduch 8 yrs ago.. I think back then they were #82. funny, he knew the boy.. but I never knew how he got my daughter's name. lo chashuv... Baruch Hashem!
Does anyone have Rav Appelbaums phone number or contact information?
You can try my dad! LOL my parents are always busy with it on the phone and have made about 30 so far....
I tried posting the number. Look up Torah tapes in Boro Park. Same number
Not pricey shadchan? Shouldnt that be in the oxymoron thread... ???
Just found this list on a diff website. Don't know if it's useful or not... Don't know what #'s are current and what's not but worth a try. Hatzlacha!

So sad:( I just posted a HUGE list of shadchanim (haven't heard of most of them) but I guess the mods didn't want to let it through. I'm sorry!
PS- who calls the shadchanim for you; you or a parent? I call for myself but I'm wondering what to do if it's a male shadchan. Can I call anyway?
How about Lewnstein or meir Levy Fom Lakewood??
I also dont believe in this business where they charge thousands of dollars!!! do these people think that people are growing money in the garden???
I don't think that's fair. Do you have any ides how much time they spend on shidduchim? Are they not entitled to make a parnassa? There's nothing wrong with your question; you're entitled to look for a less expensive shadchan if you want, but not to demean those working hard to set up Jewish homes who are fully entitled to make a living.
DY: It didn't sound demeaning to me. To paraphrase HKB"H to Yaakov, "kach onim h'umlollos?"
