A shidduch that spans the globe!

Match #: 263&264

I had been a member of JWed for a few months but after a few fruitless dates, I decided that online dating just wasn’t for me. At the time, I finally felt secure enough in my Yiddishkeit (I’m a Baal Teshuva) to go to a Shaddchan. However, Hashem had other plans for me…
I was living in Jerusalem attending yeshiva, and the head Rabbi of the English department gave me the name of a Shaddchan. We played phone tag for what seemed like eons. Finally we made a time to meet, but the Shaddchan backed out at the last minute. I had a trip scheduled to the US, and decided to go for about 2 weeks. Right before I left to go to the states, I found grace in the eyes of Hashem, and I had the merit to meet with Rav Berland of Yeshiva Shuvu Bonim, and he gave me a bracha for marriage. His students said they would daven 40 days at the kotel that I should find a wife.
While in America, I surfed the net a bit. I had kept my profile on JWed, but I wasn’t a paying member, however, I chose to run a search on women in my potential category.


The first profile I saw was a woman whose screen name was tsipo26. I decided to click on the profile. While reading the profile, I got very excited. All of the things she wrote about herself were exactly what I was looking for. I am a Breslover Chassid, and she even quoted Rebbe Nachman! While walking away from the computer, I realized that I needed to email Tispora. However, I wasn’t a paying member! I decided that if I didn’t pay this minor fee, I could be making the biggest mistake of my life.
Tispora and I started emailing each other regularly during the remainder of the 2 weeks I was in the states. We decided that I would call her to set up a date when I returned to Israel. Upon my return, we met at the Azriel Towers in Tel Aviv for our first date (I lived in Jerusalem, and she lived in Rananna). On the fifth date, I proposed to Tsipora, and she said yes!
We were married on Bet Shvat 5765 (Jan. 11th, 2005) in Jerusalem overlooking Har HaBayit. Our wedding was a lot of fun. Tsipora was born in Paris, and moved to Israel when she was 12 with her family. Her parents are of Tunisian and Algerian descent (Sephardi). I was born in NJ and I am Ashkenasi. Even though we come from worlds apart, our worlds would be incomplete without each other. Thank you JWed, for this Shidduch made in Shimayim.
