Are you looking for that special someone? Shabbos Nachamu is the time of year that singles from across the nation seek out programs where they hope to Find their Zivug. The question is....why join us?
For over three and a half years, FindYourZivug has been helping a specific group of frum people (what others would term modern machmir - yeshivish) with similar hashkofas meet and mingle in a kosher way with hopes of being able to find their zivug. We're a team of people, who have been involved in helping singles for many years (and have been in the scene not that long ago) and understand today's needs. With the help and guidance from our Rabbonim and Shadchanim, FindYourZivug has been successful in helping several people meet their matches - and I'YH you will be next!
This year's event will take place on Sunday for people in their 20s & 30s, ID's required. Anyone who is in their early 40s must get pre-approved from the organizers (not just register). Anyone under 20 can join if they don't complain that there will be some older people in attendance :)

Here what just a few people had to say about Yaakov and the events that he runs:
Thank you Yaakov for your magnificent workshop and advice on dating. I would fully recommend you to any single looking for their life partner. Shortly after attending your workshop I found mine and we recently got married. You workshop shed so much light about how to date effectively and get results!
Yaakov Grunstein has a clear and unique approach to evaluate if the person you are dating is one with whom you should be moving forward and better still - how to move forward in that relationship. If a relationship is not working, he also helps you see why it is not working and what you can do to address the problem. Most importantly, he sincerely wants to help each person find the right relationship for them.

As one of the young professional committee members of the Beth Jacob [Beverly Hills] Friday Night Dinners, we always like to bring interesting, inspirational and engaging speakers to interact and speak at these events. Bringing in Yaakov Grunstein was an amazing surprise. Little did I know, Yaakov engaged the crowd through first discussing his viewpoints on relationships and added a nice sense of humor while opening up questions to the audience for the remainder of the time. Not only did people keep coming with the questions, but Yaakov engaged other young professionals to answer each others questions while he monitored the responses. It was a fun experience from start to finish and I encourage any organization or event to take a relationship leap of faith and have Yaakov speak at your event!
Kind regards and wishing you the best,
A recommendation from a participant at the above event:
I would like to introduce to you the greatest and wisest dating speaker I have ever heard in my life, Rabbi Yaakov Grunstein. I heard him speak over a year ago in Beth Jacob and not only was he an entertaining speaker, he had many wise things to say that I have never heard before.
All the best,
Eyal Benmoshe, Ca
Rabbi Tzvi Flaum has praised our event to the point that after spendng a Shabbos with us, he volunteered to add his name publicly to this very important cause. He is the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Shaarei Tzion, and Mashgiach Ruchani of the Lander College for Women, where he also serves as a Professor of Judaic Studies. He has recently launched the Torah Studies Network, and is a recognized scholar in Jewish medical ethics.
Rabbi Benzion Klatzko wrote, "after having attended a Shabbaton run by Yaakov Grunstein and the Find Your Zivug group, I can truly say that I am impressed. The professionalism displayed in each and every detail made Shabbos a true pleasure. The shiurim and speakers were stimulating and interesting and the food and accommodations were first class! Most of all, I was impressed by the singles program. Tremendous care was given to make sure that, not only were a high caliber of persons present, but FYZ went the extra mile to make sure that each single had multiple opportunities to connect in meaningful ways. I highly recommend FYZ and applaud Yaakov on a job well done! I hope to participate in future events and to see many others join as well".

So what happened to the annual Shabbaton this year? To be totally honest, singles have complained about Shabbos Nachamu events only being on Shabbos plus we lost our sponsor. Unfortunately, many people with very deep pockets, who give a lot of money to Tzedaka, do not believe that singles events are a worthy cause. We had sent out thousands of emails asking singles to join the committee as well as other things and only a few people replied. If you or anyone you know has any leads on sponsorships we can always make a Shabbaton a different week :) If you really care about making such events, then join our committee by sending us an email.
