Single Girls - be Proactive in Shidduchim!
Join a mishmeres in Shmiras Halashon and/or say tehilim in the zechus of finding your shidduch.
Start off the new year with a new commitment! A group of single girls is getting together to make their own hishtadlus and be PROACTIVE in shidduchim. We are organizing a Mishmeres in Shmiras Halashon as well as completing the whole sefer Tehilim daily in the zechus of shidduchim. Every two weeks will be in the zechus of a different single girl who is participating in this mishmeres.
This system is based on the premise which Rashi brings down in Breishis 21:1 when Hashem remembered Sarah and she became pregnant. Rashi says that anyone who asks for mercy for his friend and he needs the same thing, he will be answered first. Because Avraham had davened that Avimelech be cured after he kidnapped Sarah, Avraham and Sarah merited becoming pregnant. In the zechus of making a commitment for the yeshua of others, iy"H Hashem will grant us all a yeshua at the right time.
There are other programs like this, but many limit the number who can participate. We want to include as many girls as possible, so please forward this to anyone you think might be interested. We are calling it "Proactive" and think of it as a type of mission towards fixing this immense problem with shidduchim which many are saying has become the curse of our generation.
Please reply to email@example.com if you'd like to participate. Include your hebrew name and mother's name, which hours you would like to keep for the mishmeres and/or if you'd like to say one perek or one day of tehilim. You can do just the mishmeres, just the tehilim, or both. Also reply if you would prefer to be removed from this list.
Tizki Lemitzvos and in the zechus of making a new commitment may we all be zoche to a shana tova and besuros tovos!
