Love at first skype
Rabbi (47) from West Hempstead & Penny (42) from Beit SHemesh
Match #: 2129 & 2130
I decided to write to her. I said "your smile is so beautiful I need sunglasses". That cheesy line almost cost me this shidduch but somehow because I asked her about who she knew in Beit shemesh we continued chatting. Through our online chats we discovered that I knew her family well ,that I had set up our brothers to be room mates at KBY. What a small world! Of course she also now after realizing who my brother was now knew who I was . She said she remembered me from my NCSY and YU Seminar days. We decided to move from writing and Iming to skype. On the second time we spoke on skype I told her that I loved her . It took her a little while longer till she felt the same way and now after 5 world wind visits of us flying back and forth from Israel to NY and NY to ISrael we decided to get engaged.
Thank you JWed for allowing mature Jewish adults to be able to find our own bashert with the help of Hashem without the ridiculous and absurd machinations of shadchanim.
Rabbi Brian Thau and Ms Penny Harow
