YUConnects will hold a community symposium titled “When Children Date: The Complex Role of Parents,” at Congregation Beth Sholom on sunday, May 19 at 9:30 a.m. Panelists include Rabbi Aryeh Lebowitz, Rebbetzin Elisheva Kaminetsky, and Mindy Eisenman who will discuss:

  • How financially secure does a young couple need to be before marriage?
  • Should a parent be proactive in finding dates for a child?
  • What if a relationship doesn’t progress after six months? Should we push?
  • Are there any red flags to warn our children about?
  • I want to meet my son’s girlfriend. When is appropriate?

A breakfast buffet will be served and there will be an opportunity for parents to meet some top matchmakers and network afterwards. Attendees can learn about a brand-new YUConnects initiative for the greater Long Island area. A promotional code for a one-month trial will be available. While this is not a singles event, funds raised will promote future programming.

Celebrating 358 engagements, YUConnects serves as a one-stop dating resource for Orthodox singles. YUConnects’ friendly office is housed at Yeshiva University’s Center for Jewish Future; it is open to the entire Jewish community and is self-funded. The program is internationally known for its unique social events, educational forums, personalized guidance, and targeted match suggestions.
