Shidduch Investigations

Cross-posted at DovBear

In some Orthodox Jewish circles, marriages are arranged by the parents (shidduchim). The parents investigate the other side before the couple can meet. Much has been written about irrelevant concerns, such as whether the family uses white tablecloths on Shabbat.

Here are some questions you haven’t thought of asking (yet). A Purim spoof:

Hat tip: Mrs. S.


  1. Thanks for the hat-tip.
    (BTW, I can’t see the video here.)

  2. mominisrael says

    It should work now. Thanks.

  3. Not sure whether to laugh out loud or cry the same way. This video is soooooo close to where we are and where we are headed.

    By the by MII, around here it is not white tablecloths that get asked about but clear plastic tablecloth coverings.

  4. ROFLOL!!! creepy! unfortunately a liitle bit ‘too real’.

  5. Chana Rogow says

    ROFLOL!!! This is too much!

      Prof K: Is clear plastic good or bad?
      Tikva: Not the white-collar crime bit, I hope!
      Chana: Thanks for visiting.

  6. BRAWNY? BRAWNY??? Everyone knows that Bounty is THE ONLY paper towel worth anything. It’s the quicker-picker-upper. Nechama would be so be off my list…

  7. He left out the all-important one of money, though perhaps the white collar crime convictions are meant to allude to their financial acumen đŸ˜‰ I put up a link to this.
