Fraidy Beiser 718-578-4522 deals primarily with FERTILITY issues... but may be good for other things also.

BEWARE - her number is in ISRAEL...so be careful to call on 'eretz yisrael' time zone!

A collegue of mine who knows that I have a medical condition asked me if I know of a SHadchan that deals with people with emotional issues because a friend of hers has a daughter that is in need of such a service. Does anybody here know of some one who can help her out?

Tisku L'mitzvos,

Some of the above already mentioned MIGHT...

I know Sos Tossis does NOT deal with emotional though.

Question -
what about someone who is a little SLOW - like as a result of a brain injury, accident etc. Which category do people think that belongs in emotional or more physically medical?

Thanks for your reply! I knew that about Sos Tasis, I told her I can give her the names that I have and she can ask them if they deal with emotional issues as well.

I think that I would put someone who is SLOW due to an TBI or accident etc. as having a physical disability. It is a neurological condition that affects the brain function. Thereby inhibiting much of the person's former? capaplity. However I would not say that it is emotional because it does not affect one's phsycological wellbeing. Both conditions are neurological in that they come from the brain but one is the emotional aspect of the brain function and one is the physical.

Dear Daniella Jacobs
Who told you that if you have epilepsy than you can't have any children?!
Don't ever beleive such nonsense I have 2 beautiful children and plan to have more if hashem wants me to of course but it is the yidishe crooked way of thinking that if you are epileptic than you can't have kids I hate when people talk like that I get real angry 'cause it's not true you will im yirtzah hashem get married and have children and if the person doesn't want you 'cause you are epileptic than he is not for you think twice
GOOD LUCK and have a wonderfull day!

The way myths about different conditions and disabilities are perpetrated and generated can be very aggravating to those of us who have them. It is so unfortunate for us and for others. We need to keep our endurance in reeducating our communities. I want to acknowledge your passionate response, hashemhelpme.

I agree that there are many myths about different diseases and disabilities and the Frum community is known to be especially paranoid when it comes to making Shiduchim with someoen who is not in 100% perfect health. However, I wonder how helpful it is to be so passionate in response to a post in a forum such as this with out knowing the full details. Does hashemhelp me know why Daniella is saying that she cannot have children? I think we have to give everyone who comes here support and not dispute what they post when we disagree with them or when out situation, no matter how similar it may seem, contradictes that which they post.

that's ok. i understand. but as i told you, i am able to have kids medically....however my mom doesn't want me to out of fear that I will seize. So that's why I am trying to find someone who is willing to adopt....and those people are very very rare.

Have you asked a Rav whether this is the right way to go? Only he can decide and weigh up the medical VS halachic implications of not going ahead to have children naturally.

The reason I say this is because it is VERY RARE for a boy that CAN have children to be allowed to marry someone that can't or that won't.

Also, from experience, I can tell you that it is also very hard to actually find a boy that knows when he still single that he cant physically have children.

Good luck and I will keep you in mind with my own shidduch research!

I will ask the rabbi but I am 100% sure that he will agree with my mom because he knows about my situation. He knows that my mom would never prohibit me from having kids naturally without there being a logical reason(especially since all my mom does does whenever she's on call is deliver babies) I have a feeling that all of the guys who would be willing to even date someone who can't have kids HALACHICALLY (If it were up to me, I would. But my family- especially my mom- & friends have seen enough seizures.) are taken. Obviously if there ever is a surgery that can get rid of this thing for good, I'm going to get it. But, I am just trying to be a good daughter, as well as a good Jew by doing what my mom wants. If guys only want girls who can have kids naturally and me having kids naturally will cause my mom pain, then I'd rather remain single.

Daniella,

You have really thought about this a lot and I fully understand your wish not to place your mother and family under more stress. In the end you need to make decisions that are in line with who you are and your integrity. I"H, may you find a man with whom you can create a bais ne'eman! Please don't hesitate to call for support.

All the best,
Sharon

um....lets say i would have kids naturally. My doctor was planning on taking me off my medicaton- because I do not like taking chances and if I was pregnant with my medication then there is a very good chance that it would cause birth defects. Anyway, I just had a seizure this past Thursday night...because I was not taking some of my medication( I take certain doses of three medication- 2 3x a day and another one of them 2x a day) and I wasn't taking my a.m. medicine for a week...which led to a seizure. A seizure that lasted for over 5 minutes. which is why my mom does not want me to have kids naturally.

Dear Daniella,
I am sorry to hear that you had another seizure after being seizure free for a substantial amount of time. I hope that you can get back under controll again soon!

I don't think that you should feel presured by anyone to make a decision either way in regard to your future. However, being that marriage and having children is the first Mitzvah that Hashem gave to Adam when a singlehas knowledge that will affect this aspect their marriage ti becomes a Halachik issue that should be refered to Rav. Different Rabbis might give different answers on how to deal with each situation. In your situation you are able to have children yet you have another condition that affects your ability to become pregnant. Our Rabbis are there to guide us in all aspects of our lives including this one! Once you ask you and your family will be reasured that you are looking for the right kind of boy.

Hugs

YKB

I was amazed at how as my health situation changed certain aspects of what my Rav told me to look for in a boy and how to go about it changed.

I have asked the rabbi. He said that because of halachic issues I have to marry someone- actually I'll say date- someone who either has kids already or cannot have kids.

I have children from a previous marriage. I would consider marrying someone who could not have children. Who would I get in touch with? I live in Yerushalayim, am not considering moving at this point because of my children.

you can get sos tossis number from Chai Life Lines website. When in doubt, just call Chai Life line straight and they will transfer you.

Curently, I believe that they have around 350 singles in their database... majority tending to be more chassidish... but all it takes is ONE RIGHT ONE!!! so give them a call.

They take you basic info and then assign you to your own personal 'shadchan' who knows the whole picture. She will then browse their database (where only basics are known) and try and match you. So far my experience has been that they are VERY understanding.

They will NOT set you up with something unless they very positive that it will work. You may find them to be too much perfectionist... but you may not find them that way...

Hatzlacha Raba... and do you hishtadlus by calling other 'special' shadchonim!

I recently saw an ad in the Yated that OHEL have launched a new shidduch program for those suffering with emotional/mental issues. This is quite a novelty, as many shadchonim deal primarily with physical...
But... I misplaced the ad! so.. perhaps someone else can post the info here...

I am in Israel, 42, modern orthodox, overweight and have hirsutism.
Is there a shadchan who could help me, and not send me 60 year olds ultra orthodox, or any other kind of person that doesn't fit me.
Thank you.

Sos Tasis deals with all medical issues I can't think of a reason why they won't deal with epilepsy.

I tried to reach Mrs. Linda Markowitz and the number listed below is not in service. Does anyone know how to contact Mrs. Markowitz via phone or Email?
Also, I live in Monsey and am trying to find Shadchanim who work with young adults with disabilities. Any suggestions?

I was advised to date women who have some issues so that I be realistic that someone would be able to accept my mental issues. I was advised by a Rav to do so. Till now I have dated many normal women without apparent issues for over 10 years and never got to a point where I have to disclose my mental status.
While I realize that this Rav is right I don't know where to look for women with problems. If I disclose my mental condition to a shadchan then I will be guaranteed to be set up with women who have similar issues and that is simply unbearable to have such married life. Or NOT OFFERED ANY DATES ALLTTHOGETHER.
I have many baggage issues such as a dysfunctional biological family, and others. it was always important for me to have confidentiality. I even though of inventing some issue so as to avoid disclosing mental issues as that has the most stigma. So I don't know how to proceed. Any advice from members here?
