BROOKLYN (VIN Podcast) — In this VIN exclusive, Rabbi Yitschak Rudimon offers a creative solution to help solve or mitigate the shidduch crisis.
Put simply, Rabbi Rudimon believes that boys and girls should get married much younger than the current trend. He believes that between age 18-20 is the prime of their lives, and often an ideal time to look for a shidduch.
He recently penned an op-ed about this impactful issue.
However, some important questions remain:
- What is the root cause of the shidduch crisis?
- Why are there more unmarried girls than boys?
- What about the recent proposal to eliminate 12th grade?
