...have seen a lot. We've heard a lot. We've seen the anxiety in the eyes of the boys and girls we meet. We've heard from the parents who feel that their single children are forgotten. We've never told them about our ever-growing lists of resumes, of the hours and hours of phone calls and research we've put in. We've never told them about how sometimes we've had to cut back on those hours so we could try a job with steady income.

Who We Are

Adopt A Shadchan is a groundbreaking new organization that seeks to partner shuls and communities with dedicated shadchanim to make the shidduch process targeted and sustainable. We created this organization so that every single can have a dedicated shadchan to guide and advocate for them.

Our Programs

Singles can join our database which includes over 3,000 singles and is constantly being updated with new and more relevant information. It is accessed by shadchanim only and is detailed and organized to facilitate as many potential matches as possible.

Free to join our database. Platinum membership of $35/mo. provides the opportunity to meet and work with up to 3 Shadchanim

Singles events that are carefully planned and are curated for specific demographics. Platinum members have priority admissions to our in-person and zoom speed dating events. Despite the challenges of the past months, no other organization has matched AAS in quality and quantity of our events.

Continuous training for shadchanim and guidance for singles. Our workshops cover a number of areas including support and advice for singles, parents, and families as well as hands-on technical instruction for shadchanim. Our Shadchanim work together as a team, with discussions and feedback to make the AAS experience a notch above your typical shadchan encounter.

Over 150 shadchanim from all over the world are part of this network. Each day "adopted" singles are posted & remain the focus of the day.

Shuls or alumni groups partner with AAS. Shadchanim will be assigned to work on their singles, meeting individually with the boys and girls from their group, and representing them at meetings, networking events, and on the AAS chat.
