$$ - Od Yeshama V'Oray Yehuda - $$

the Gittels and Berels of Baltimores Jewish community seem to have a vexxing problem. Apparently there is a major singles epidemic in this lovely southern city. Is it the bad baseball team? the water in Baltimore Harbor? Or too much Gemara cominng out of Ner Yisrael? What ever the cause of this dramatic trouble for the Baltimore Yingles and Yiddles, Star-K Kashurus is offering a rather Jewish incentive for match makers. Ever make a match? I know Browngirl has, well she and many others can now go from ameteur to professional shidduch makers thanks to your friendly Baltimore-based Hashgacha. The only question remains is, what if the couple is too frum for Star-K? Can their matchmakers keep the gelt? If you still dont get it just read this.

Cash rewards for shidduch
By Uriel Heilman

In a bid to tackle an increasingly vexing problem in the Orthodox community, a kosher certification agency is using an old-fashioned inducement to address the problem of unmarried women in the community: cash rewards.

It's a throwback to an old Jewish tradition, but with a new twist: Instead of fathers demanding dowries of their daughters' would-be suitors, the Star-K kosher agency is offering $2,000 to anybody who can get a nice Jewish boy to marry a nice Jewish girl from the agency's hometown of Baltimore.

The catch: The couple must be committed to observing kashrut, Shabbat and the Jewish laws of family purity (oy vey)...

Alas, fashionable I'm not. Jeans, t-shirt and sweatshirt do it for me...

As for looks, my wife approves and that's enough for me.
