We Know Why You’re Here...

Rachel Bachrach

It’s that time of year again, when hundreds of eligible young men are released onto the rosters of eager shadchanim. While these new daters get their feet wet in some of the most popular shidduch spots, how do the yeshivishe dating rituals look to the non-Jewish waiters and restaurant managers who provide the backdrop for those intense two hours? We snuck into some of New York City’s top dating venues to find out.

 

The Empowered Generation

Eytan Kobre

In 1959, no one thought Jewish teens would give up social dancing, mixed swimming, or going to a synagogue without a mechitzah. Even the Orthodox congregations were resistant. But Rabbi Pinchas Stolper had a vision — and a core belief: that many battles for Torah could be won by sticking to one’s principles, being honest and consistent about them, and trusting the youth to follow their Jewish conscience.

 

Nothing but the Truth

Aryeh Ehrlich

Rav Yaakov Yeshaya Blau had the quick wit and sharp tongue of a seasoned Yerushalmi, yet he also had the patience to field every query that came his way. What motivated the Eidah HaChareidis’s preeminent dayan, who worked as a bank manager for years before the Minchas Yitzchak was able to persuade him to join the Eidah? And what made him run away from certain cases, as if from fire? A tribute to the Torah world’s venerated posek in business halachah.
