There are many NEW items and NEW information below as well as a detailed itinerary for the UWS below in the details section - plz read 'em all :)


It is known that during this time of year if one gives charity, the evil decrees in heaven will be nullified. What better place to give charity then to the group that is there for YOU all year long?! For the past 5 years, I have been footing the bill. Today, we have become so large that we need to ask for your help! Maintaining the website, advertising costs, promoting (even on FB), takes time & money! PLEASE give generously & allow us to HELP YOU and the rest of the singles!

Simchat Torah on the UWS

As always, the place to be for Simchat Torah is the Upper West Side!
There are also several hotels in the area - if you want to share one, I may be able to set you up with a roommate :)
Why pay crazy amounts of money to meet the same people you meet all year long? Join us for a Simchat Torah like never before! Thousands converge on the UWS to celebrate the giving of the Torah. With meals and parties all over and of course dancing in the street with the Torah, where else would you want to be? Pick a free ticket below and I will email you the itinerary for the Chag along with lists of Shuls with addresses & hot spots :)

Simchas Torah in Monsey

If you will be in the Blueberry Hill area, kindly click the Free ticket below and we will let you know what day we are hosting a meal.

Witness an amazing Hakafos. Join us Thursday evening in New Square to see the Skevere Rebbe himself dancing while more than 3000 people stand on bleachers watching. For MEN, WOMEN and CHILDREN of all ages. (Many people walk in from all over Monsey to see this).

A Prayer at the Kotel on Hoshanah Rabba

LAST CHANCE - I will be faxing your requests to Israel Tuesday eve 9/24/13 @ 8:00PM
As I have done for the past 2 years for hundreds of people, it would be my pleasure to pray for you on Hoshanah Rabba - a day that it is said the gates are open similar to Yom Kippur. As someone who has been single for many years, raised children on my own, and makes a living being a Master Certified Life Coach - I probably understand what you are going through!
As always, I will not be looking at who made the request, rather just your first name, your mother's first name, and your request.Remember, the custom is to write your Hebrew name given at birth and your MOTHER's Hebrew name given at birth. NOTE: Many people have been given nicknames, which was not their birth name. Although it saddens me that I will not be able to personally make it to the Kotel this year, I have arranged for your request to be faxed there :) Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Life Coaching

As always, I remain available to the singles who have questions regarding dating at no charge. However, I do need to charge for sessions. ADDITIONALLY, I am the only one certified on the East Coast to train people to become a certified life coach.

Classes will be given in October

Wishing everyone an awesome Chag!

My suggestions if you don't have meals - go to Chabad Wednesday eve.  & Shabbat Day

Thursday night - free meal at WSIS but come early!

Friday day - All the shuls have kiddush on
