We are very proud of our shadchanim. They are a fantastic group of dedicated, varied individuals who all share a passion for helping frum singles find their zivug, their life partner. When you complete your registration, you are invited to select your named shadchan. These brief descriptions should help you. Although e-mail addresses are given for the shadchanim, selecting a shadchan for yourself is done via the system when you sign up or login. If that shadchan is too busy to take on extra people at the moment, they will let you know and you can try someone else.
