Note: The BSN site only allows you to update your own shidduch profile, no profile browsing. You must first be in contact with a BSN shadchan. See the shadchanim list for some local shadchanim.

Encounter USA's Zivugim*

Note: The Encounter USA Zivugim site is only usable by rabbis, rebbetzins and educators, seeking shidduchim for their talmidim/talmidos. The "sponsor" must first request a log-in for the site. The "sponsor" can then email the background form to his/her single talmid and ask them to fill in the details and email it back to the "sponsor". Once the "sponsor" uploads the form, with any additional comments, to the web site, he/she can then search the site for a possible shidduch for his/her student. The site is run by Encounter Usa and its Director, Baltimore psychotherapist and self-esteem author, Rabbi Yisroel Roll, who can be reached at

Boneh Bayis Shidduchim*     718-438-1639   Quote:

"There is good news regarding shidduchim! Baruch Hashem, much attention has been given to shidduchim lately. However, a very important group of people has not been sufficiently addressed. I am referring to many excellent frum boys and girls who have a medical issue or some physical disability. This includes medical issues that are in the past and conditions that are current. These young people are often very well adjusted, have excellent middos, and a tremendous sensitivity and understanding about life."

"With the haskama and brachos of Gedolei Yisrael, Boneh Bayis has been organized to fill this need. All calls and all information are strictly confidential. The goals are to find a shidduch for everyone, using a personal touch, and to treat each person with sensitivity and compassion. A central telephone number was created for people to call, which will, iyH, facilitate making appropriate matches. The number to call for Boneh Bayis Shidduchim is 718-438-1639."
