What Would Jew Do?
There you are, paying your respects to a loved one gone too soon, when you spot a potential prospect across the room. You make eye contact. There’s instant attraction and a tangible connection. Do you begin flirting right then and there? What’s a good Jew to do?
Wait. When the shiva service is over and people are crowding the buffet you can both grab your plates and go sit near each other and introduce yourselves. Shivas are a great place to meet a prospect because chances are the majority of the people attending can be assumed to be Jewish, you will more than likely know people in common who can endorse the both of you, and you will honor your loved one by allowing their death to create a shidduch as you pay your respects.
