PHOTOS: Last night, a very unique event took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. PG Waxman to benefit “The Shadchanim’s Tzedaka”, Keren Chassanim Zichron Mattel, a fund founded by Lakewood Shadchanim to assist the financial strain of Chassanim in their wedding expenses.
The event was a parlor meeting exclusively for Bochurim in order to bring awareness to the plight of Chassanim, many of them friends and Chavrusas of those in attendance, whose families are struggling.
Noted Shadchan R’ Shloimie Lewinstien addressed the overflow crowd of Bochurim. Those in attendance were encouraged to make pledges to the organization effective when they get engaged and married. As Rabbi Meir Levi explained: “Chassanim for Chassanim”.
The event was also a unique opportunity for the Shadchanim to meet with many Bochurim, as many Shadchanim were in attendance as well, including R’ Meir Levy, R’ Shlomie Lewinstien, R’ Tzadok Katz, R’ Freddy Freidman, R’ Ahron Mueller and R’ Yosef Schachnow.
