Ed. Note - Noticed this annoucement on

I am a Shadchanit and am currently arranging to be in Baltimore for one day the last week in June or beginning of July to meet with observant Jewish singles in particular age groups. I would like to interview women between the ages of 25 and 34 and men between the ages of 40 to 65. The reason for these ages is that I am trying to help find a match for people looking in these age ranges. If you fit into this age range and have good references kindly email me with your name and phone number. I will set times for these appointments and we can meet in Baltimore over refreshments I will provide. There is no charge for this meeting. Please be prepared to have at least two references. One from your Rabbi and another from a friend. And two current pictures, although I will also bring a camera and video. Email to

News from the Baltimore Shidduch Network web site:

Singles now have the ability to put in their own information. The way it works is that the Shaddchan puts in the name and all the required information. There is a new field for username and password. The Shaddchan then gives this username and password to the client who can login using the login under the new Singles menu and update his information. This is the only page that the client can get to, his profile. He/she can't see anything else and they can't put in their name by themselves, that's something that has to be done by the Shaddchan. Obviously, since this is a Shaddchan based website, there are certain things that only the Shaddchan can put in including birth date and physical appearance and most of the personality questions which should be based on the Shaddchan's perspective. This eliminates having to give a form which the client fills out which is then put in by the Shaddchan, so it will save you a lot of work. Of course, you can always fill out all the information yourself if you so choose.

So this is how it works:

  1. The Shaddchan adds a name, puts in all the required information (the ones with the red asterisk). Make sure to remember to put in a username and password for the client.
  2. The Shaddchan then gives the username and password that they created to the client.
  3. The client logs in using the singles login with the username and password that was given to them and updates all the information that is available to them to update.
  4. The Shaddchan then goes back in and fills in all the blanks that is only available to them, if they haven't already done so.
