(VIDEOS in extended article). Dear Friends,
As part of Klal Yisrael, we all strive to “make a difference” in the world, especially for the benefit of our children – our future. When it comes to shidduchim, many organizations, both large and small, local and international, have sprung up to make that difference – to help eligible singles meet and decide to marry and raise a family. There are large networks, meetings in private homes, online services, lectures galore, and even Shadchanim hired to handle the needs of their community’s local singles population‐each devoted to making a difference in the complex and difficult world of shidduchim. And now there is ShidduchVision.
ShidduchVision opens up brand new possibilities by turning “outoftown”
into local. ShidduchVision allows Shomer Shabbos singles of all ages to meet via professional video conference technology – that means no expensive trips, no time off of work or learning, no pressure. For those with disabilities or other constraints on their ability to travel, imagine the possibilities this offers. After up to three meetings via the ShidduchVision experience, the two can decide to meet in person.
ShidduchVision is now in operation in several cities. Briefly, it is a simple process – the Shadchan schedules the time for the singles to meet, the equipment is in a private home, and afterwards the two can decide whether or not to meet again.
NEW! Through ShidduchVision’s SMS “ Singles Meeting Shadchanim” program, singles may now be interviewed by Shadchanim from all over the world. As the ShidduchVision program swings in to full gear, we announce a sensational program that will enable singles, both male and female, to “meet” Shadchanim face‐to‐face, all around the globe. We plan to introduce SMS or “Singles Meeting Shadchanim,” via ShidduchVision, in mid January, 2010. SMS will be available anywhere a ShidduchVision studio is located ‐ currently, Baltimore, MD, Chicago, IL and Lakewood, NJ are the proud cities with a ShidduchVision studio. Next up, in approximately 30 days, is Toronto, Canada, and that is soon to be followed by LA and Detroit. Shadchanim will set specific days and times for singles to make reservations to meet and interview with those Shadchanim, to their mutual benefit.
Dedication Opportunities! We invite you to be part of the effort and to remember or honor someone special at the same time.
The following sponsorship opportunities are available:

For every studio dedication, a beautiful plaque will be set up in the studio to acknowledge your generous participation in this magnificent mitzvah as well as being posted on our site. This will be seen by all Shadchanim and singles making use of the studio. You will also receive a beautiful plaque for your own wall!
