Frum jewish dating buddhism and interracial dating
They may study Gemara and Chassidus for fifteen years but clearly the light of a G-dly life is not necessarily penetrating their souls or altering their world-views.Every day I receive tens of emails from complete strangers in the religious community asking me if I can suggest a shidduch for them.Until I disclose that the conversation was with ten very frum girls who were describing what the Chassidic dating scene has descended to.We can no longer close our eyes to the serious dating crisis in the religious community wherein a man and woman’s most important decision may be based on values that are inimical to Judaism.And the only way to discern whether a Yeshiva education in general, and a Chassidic education in particular, is having any impact is whether its products make decisions that reflect the Torah values that are at the center of their education.But we now face a situation in which religious girls feel that putting more time into applying make-up and buying clothes than davening and learning will guarantee them a good shidduch.Can we really be proud of having raised a generation of future Rabbis who see skin and shape in a woman but seem oblivious to personality, mind, and spirit?
And where are the Yeshiva educators throughout this crisis?
It incorporates the softness of her voice (kol isha), the nurturing of her soul, and the wisdom of her uniquely feminine view of life.
So how can a religious man whose years of education revolves around seeing the hidden within the obvious, the G-d who lurks beneath the veneer of nature, be so utterly blind to a woman’s soul?
How can we in the Jewish community who love learning suddenly look at a woman and see all cover and no book?
