JERUSALEM (VINnews) — A new shidduch service, which does not seem to be regionally limited but is based in Beit Shemesh, is offering shidduchim between people who are not vaccinated. The service offers a free service with no official fees for being set up or even for those getting engaged.
The service allows non-vaccinated people to meet and date like minded people, meaning others who are not vaccinated for COVID-19. The rationale for such a service is that many of those who were not vaccinated acted out of ideological and health reasons from fear of the side effects of vaccination and would therefore be seeking similar partners.
However the attraction of such a small pool of people (with more than 60% of Israelis having received two vaccinations) may not continue for long since it would severely limit the shidduch options for such people and in the long run with no real side effects discovered for the vaccine there will be less concern about marrying those who are already vaccinated.
