There is a lot of wisdom to gain from Torah. Take for example the age that the Torah recommends Jews to marry which is 18 - 20 years. If you spend any time learning biology and you take note of the physiology of humans and how this relates to fertility the ideal age for becoming a parent co-incides with the age the Torah recommends to marry. 

Sadly, in today's time, the Jewish community has begun to follow the non-Jewish trend of studying for a career, pursuing a career, having fun, touring the world and later in life settling down to get married. Of course then the 40 and 50 year old men suddenly wake up and remember they have a Mitzvah to populate the world and decide to marry women 20 years younger than they are. What they are then doing is leaving the women of their age to remain single while requesting women from a different age group. The result is a mess. Too many singles and too many who married late now desperate for children.

The answer. Don't wait to get married. From when you enter highschool, make sure that those you interact with, be it for sports, leisure time pursuits, study groups or anything else, make sure you will interact with young Jews. Why? The answer is simple, the more you ensure you surround yourself with fellow Jews who are like minded, the more chance you will have to meet the right person young and fulfill the Torah recommendation to marry young.

In years gone by, dating and Shidduchim was predominantly via a MatchMaker. If you or a loved one is Jewish, single and 18 years of age or more, please do contact Chessed Ve'Emet and join our Shidduch service. Time is precious and it passes very quickly.

So visit the website right now, read about the Shidduch service offered by Chessed Ve'Emet, book your appointmnt for your interview and let's get going to work towards your coming to Chuppah.

Looking forward to hearing from you
