  • Mayanot Connects aims to help alumni meet their prospective spouse through the Shidduch system.
  • We aspire to help our students in integrating into Jewish life and community as smoothly and easily as possible.

Assisting Students:
A matchmaker through Chabadmatch relates how she matched two Mayanot students, thanks to Mayanot Connects.

Yehudis Abramowitz relates: "I met Ben when he was a student at Mayanot Yeshiva in Yerushalayim. I was impressed by his good Midos (character) and we stayed in touch after he went back to the US and enrolled in a Master's Program in Social Work. One of the daily ChabadMatch/ MayanotConnects profiles appeared with Rachael's information. She seemed like just the right girl for him. After sharing the profiles and arranging for the the couple to meet, I found it such a pleasure working with each of them. B"H, they are now married. Their simcha is my simcha!" -Via a Chabadmatch Newsletter Update
