The continued search for ''eligable men'' can take us in strange and newfangled directions. We can, of course, take the conventional routes - i.e. restaurants, bar mitzvahs, charity events, etc. Or, for the SERIOUS SEARCHER, I have humbly (lol) come up with some ''unexpected'', (and therefore ''uncharted'') new places in which to search for your man - both in ISRAEL and the US. Offered up here for your generous consideration, I give you:

1) THE KOTEL (the Western Wall). This venue has a deliniated side FOR MEN ONLY, hence cutting out any potential confusion as to ''GENDER.'' I am NOT trifling with the SIGNIFICANT level of holiness and community prayer which one should absolutely experience in this location. I am simply pointing out that JUDAISM speaks to the ''sanctity of marriage''. So it follows that God will smile upon the creation of potential shidduchim in this most esteemed location.

The obvious problem that arises from this suggestion is, "If the two parts of the KOTEL are divided into the WOMEN''s side and the MEN''s side, how then can a woman search for her MAN there?"  I''m 20 steps ahead of you ladies! Here''s the solution: Wait, (after davening of course!), by the large entrance to the KOTEL. Keep your eyes peeled for men who are unattatched. You will become more and more astute at separating the  good ones from the CADs, I promise! Bring something with you - a basket of apples, flowers, etc.


When you spot a man who you would like to meet, simply drop the basket as he approaches! Simple! If he comes to your aid immediately, he is (at very least) a gentleman. Check for wedding rings, or other markings of ''married men''.

The rest is really up to you, ladies! BUT I DO ABSOLUTELY GUATRANTEE THAT YOU WILL MEET MEN IN THIS MANNER !
